The money has been granted through the Community Building Partnership. Pearce said: “JewishCare is a major provider of community services in Sydney with more than 400 people accessing the aged care, disability, mental health and crisis centre each year.”

The presentation was attended by Jewish Care CEO Claire Vernon, treasurer Lawrence Myers and Facilities Manager Ben Mirkin.
