With less the two weeks to go before Sydney’s Jewish Community gathers to commemorate and honour our ANZAC diggers, the Event Organising Committee is already assured a huge turn-out.

The Organising Committee has commissioned a special limited edition slouch hat in the style worn by diggers during WWI.  These will be gifted to those people who help to fund the event with donations of $825 or more.

Chair of the Event Committee, Garry Browne, told J-Wire that already well over 700 people had registered to attend the Service, which will be held at the Great Synagogue on Sunday afternoon, 3rd May, commencing at 3.00pm.
“We are receiving dozens of new registrations every day – and already we have had confirmations from the Prime Minister, the Governor of NSW, Sydney’s Lord mayor, the NSW Attorney-General, leading ADF dignitaries, community leaders and many Government Ministers and MPs,” Garry Browne said.
The event is a joint venture of many leading communal organisations.  Mr Browne said that the Service will be a memorable one.  “We have commissioned a very special audio-visual and this will be broadcast on a giant translucent screen inside the Synagogue.  There will be a  joint schools choir, pipers and drummers and representatives from the 3rd Rose Bay Judean  Scout Group,” he added.
Those wanting to attend the service should register soon to avoid disappointment at  There is no charge.
