Closer ties with community partners and aligning more strongly with affiliates has been a strategic focus this year for the JCCV.

Daniel Aghion

Daniel Aghion, President delivered a clear path forward for the JCCV and summarised key areas of realignment and value for the community.

Aghion noted four key areas of focus in his report: Restoring credibility; Leading the community by example; A sound financial footing; and Identifying matters which meet common community aspirations. Together with the Executive Director, Judy Fetter and focussed Executive, the JCCV has made significant strides forward in 2021.

Leadership with Covid 19 responses, advocacy with Government and DHHS, crisis management, Yom HaShoah and Multicultural engagement, “…have all brought our community together in a more cohesive and collaborative way.” The Year in Review video captured the connections strengthened across the community by the JCCV in 2021.

The General Sir John Monash Award for outstanding community service was awarded at the AGM to Rabbi Ralph Genende, who has gone far beyond his professional role to personally connect with those around him, building bridges of tolerance with a passion for social justice.

A passionate presentation was made by Joel Lazar, Jewish Climate Network CEO, to join the JCCV as an affiliate organisation, boosting the total affiliates to fifty-four for the 2021 calendar year.

The momentum is moving with the JCCV in 2022 to collaborate and link with specialist Jewish organisations to strengthen programs with First Nations, Jewish Immersion Programs and Harm Prevention, to promote best practice in Safeguarding the Vulnerable across the Victorian Jewish community
