The group was led by Dr Danny Lamm, President of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, Philip Chester, President of the Zionist Federation of Australia, and Jeremy Jones, Director of International and Community Affairs for the Australia/Israel and Jewish Affairs Council, and included other senior communal leaders.

“We were most impressed by the high level of knowledge of all the political leaders we met about the issues we discussed with them and by the strength and depth of bipartisan sympathy and support for our community and its concerns,” said Dr Lamm.

“In these respects, the Australian Jewish community is among the most fortunate in the world”, he concluded.
