BPJC Building Fund

February 17, 2009 by  


BPJC launched our building fund at our second birthday party. BPJC Secretary Scott Leonard launched the fund in the presence of our special guest Mr Steve Denenberg, Executive Director of the Union for Progressive Judaism, members and supporters.

Mr Leonard explained how like other Australian Jewish communities, ‘Brisbane includes the religious and secular, young and old, and people from a range of different nations. Each of these groups has different needs but the common theme throughout our history has been a temple as the centre of a community. We are looking for a property large enough for future expansion for offices and meeting halls as demand arises. It will become an asset available to support the whole community’.

Contact the Secretary now to pledge your support to this important project. Click here to read the complete speech.
