Following an impressive career spanning over three decades in the education and aged care sectors of the Jewish community in Melbourne, Judy Fetter has been appointed Executive Director of the Jewish Community Council of Victoria.

Judy Fetter and Jennifer Huppert

Judy Fetter’s professional experience as Director of Admissions at Mount Scopus College 1995-2006; Business Development Manager at Alphington Grammar School 2007-2013; Donor Relations Manager and General Manager Operations at Emmy Monash Aged Care 2013-2019 have offered her invaluable experience prioritising community demands and enabling change to best represent organisational goals.

Jennifer Huppert, President JCCV said,” Judy’s invaluable experience and depth of understanding of our dynamic Jewish community and the importance of connecting more broadly with other communities with a clear strategy will be a real asset for the JCCV. The Executive Team are excited with the appointment and feel confident together with Judy’s expertise we can advance our reach.”

Judy believes,” building trusted relationships is pivotal to the success of any organisation, and working collaboratively in a respectful manner with all members of the community is extremely important for genuine long term outcomes.

During Fetter’s tenure at Mount Scopus College, she was specifically involved in engaging with the South African Jewish community and spearheaded educational consultations in Johannesburg and Cape Town between 1996 and 2003 which resulted in over 120 families migrating to Melbourne. In addition to her extensive ties with the Melbourne community, this knowledge of both the Australian and South African Jewish families will be invaluable for her role at the JCCV.

Multicultural involvement with the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria through her work at Alphington Grammar School and successfully promoting the increased demands of an ageing population resulting in the development of Gandel House and expansion of Emmy Monash Aged Care have shown Judy’s ability to adapt to challenging demands from different sectors and ethnic groups.

Judy is passionate about adding value to the services offered to our community. She states, ” continuing to raise the profile of the Jewish community, connecting meaningfully and remaining relevant with different ages, whilst promoting tolerance and a greater understanding of Jewish life to the culturally diverse Victorian community will be a challenge I will embrace.”

The JCCV Executive will be working closely with Judy Fetter from her commencement in the role as Executive Director from 6th July and will be based at Beth Weizmann.
