Hakoah’s White City complex will provide youth group Betar with a new home…the first headquarters they have had in five years.

In a landmark arrangement signed between Betar parent Steve Enoch and Hakoah manager John Cormio, Betar will have a club room available to them for a year.

Future arrangements will depend on circumstances following the redevelopment of the site.

Betar Shaliach Yoni Issahary told J-Wire: “It has not been easy having to arrange meetings in different places all the time, but now we have a chance to establish a base.”

Betar offers an informal education to youth from eight to eighteen to encourage the growth of their connection with Israel.

Hakoah president Phil Filler said: “It’s in keeping with Hakoah’s commitment to the community. White City is now already home to Magen David Adom and we have independent operators holding daily yoga classes and teaching karate. The gym is still fully operational and of course Maccabi utilises the tennis courts. I went down to the club on the weekend and in the car park, which accommodates 100 cars, there was not a spot to be found. It all bodes well for the future.”

Sydney’s Hakoah Club is scheduled for total reconstruction.
