The 2023 Community Crisis Golf Day, a charitable event organised in support of Jewish House, proved to be an astounding triumph.

Under the backdrop of idyllic weather at the picturesque New South Wales Golf Club, participants gathered in solidarity to contribute to a commendable cause and generate much-needed financial resources.

The event garnered a remarkable turnout of 129 enthusiastic golfers, accompanied by generous sponsors, and featured a 4-ball Ambrose game format. Witnessing a splendid exhibition of both skill and camaraderie, players showcased their golfing prowess on the verdant greens, vying for the prestigious Bobby Diamond Cup. Ultimately, it was Paul Ghanem and his adept team who emerged victorious, each earning a well-deserved prize.

A particularly momentous occasion occurred when Mitchell Tieck achieved a remarkable hole-in-one during the putting competition, further elevating an already unforgettable day.

The resounding success of the event owes much to the invaluable support of our benevolent sponsors. Gemi Investments, Pengana Capital, Projex Group Pty Ltd, Ashe Morgan Intuitive Capital, Warren Woodcock, Brown & Chase, Comlink, JFS, Boroughs, Alceon, Elaine Diamond, FIVEX, Andreasons Green, Sandersons Mercedes Rushcutters Bay, and McGrath Estate Agents all played pivotal roles in ensuring the event’s triumphant outcome.

The funds raised during the course of the day will be dedicated to sustaining Jewish House’s indispensable endeavours in aiding individuals and families who face or are at risk of homelessness. This remarkable achievement underscores the magnanimity and dedication demonstrated by all involved as they actively strive to make a positive impact on those affected by the ongoing challenges posed by the high cost of living and the rental crisis in Sydney.

Jewish House CEO Rabbi Mendel Kastel thanked all those who attended and sponsored the day, saying, “We are extremely grateful to everyone who joined us for the Jewish House Community Crisis Golf Day. It was a great day filled with joy and a sense of purpose. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our sponsors for their generosity and support. Together, we have made a significant difference in the lives of those in need.”
