Jewish House brought together more than 1,000 community members online with an evening of entertainment and insight.

Logging on from home, rather than meeting in person was very different for guests who look forward to coming together at the Jewish House’s annual gala dinner.

The evening did not disappoint! Audience members were treated to an exclusive performance by Haredic singing sensation, Shulem Lemmer – who brought the house down with his rendition of Billy Joel’s Piano Man. Guests at home were left laughing in stitches with a performance by Top 10 New York comedian – MODI, and there were some surprise appearances by Jackie Mason & Fran Drescher.

It’s been an extraordinarily busy year for the team at Jewish House. They have stepped up like never before to respond to the impact of the global pandemic on our local community. The Prime Minister of Australia, Hon Scott Morrison sent a letter of support to Jewish House CEO Rabbi Mendel Kastel OAM ahead of the event to share his appreciation for the 37-year-old organisation – acknowledging their support, guidance and impact on the community over the past 12 months.

Rabbi Kastel shared several insights into his team’s service delivery with the audience on Wednesday evening and called for donation support to help Jewish House re-build the lives of families and individuals in 2021 through the organisation’s launch of the William Cooper Susbsidied Housing project, healthy relationships programs, and bolstering the JH Kids children’s services.
