‘This is part of a restructure of the JCCV’s professional team to extend the impact and reach of JCCV programs and advocacy in the Jewish and broader Victorian community.

Levin brings extensive community, advocacy and communications experience to the state’s Jewish roof body. She will join Judy Fetter, JCCV Chief Executive Officer, in a senior leadership role to focus on operational matters across the organisation with the strategic guidance of JCCV President Daniel Aghion and the JCCV Executive.

“The JCCV has a number of important projects underway, including rolling out antisemitism training for Victorian school teachers in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Education; providing successful Jewish immersion programs to local government staff; and safeguarding the vulnerable in our community,” Aghion said.

“The addition of Naomi Levin to the JCCV professional staff will allow our organisation to expand these collaborative programs to a larger audience – and further strengthen the voice of Victoria’s Jewish community.”

Fetter added: “The addition of Naomi to the JCCV professional team will boost our capacity to deliver outstanding support, guidance and advocacy for our 54 affiliates and ensure our relationships with all stakeholders are advanced.”

Levin comes to the JCCV from the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council, where she was a senior policy analyst. Prior to that, she worked for six years as a ministerial media adviser in the Abbott and Turnbull governments and was previously deputy editor of the Australian Jewish News. She is a graduate of Mount Scopus College.

“We are so fortunate to live in a State that welcomes, support and strengthens many diverse groups, including our vibrant Jewish community,” Levin said.

“There are always challenges, but the Jewish community broadly, and the JCCV specifically, has the capability, drive and energy to respond to the changing dynamics in our community and continues to make a tangible difference.”

“I look forward to working with Judy Fetter and the JCCV Executive to help lead our community to adapt and adjust to these shifts and to promote the values we hold dear as Jewish Victorians.”
