President Roger Selby said: “We warmly welcome Her Excellency to this role and we look forward to working with Her Excellency.”

Governor Beazley’s patronage follows the patronage of her predecessor David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d) who has been sworn in today as Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.

Selby added: “As NAJEX marches towards our centenary year in 2020, we continue to play an important role in the NSW Jewish community through our commemorations of the service of Jewish and other veterans at Anzac Day and Remembrance Day ceremonies, our education about the role Jews played in Australia’s military campaigns and our encouragement of our youth to join service-related organisations through the annual NAJEX Youth Leadership Awards presented to a student in Year 11 of each of the Sydney Jewish day-schools.

NAJEX membership is growing again due to the interest of family members, former National Servicemen and others, and we welcome anyone interested in joining our ranks, especially Jews.”
