In the last 12 months, the Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) has spoken up on behalf of Victorian Jews in many important areas and added the community’s voice to significant debates.

The JCCV has led the Jewish community’s response to Glen Eira Council’s IHRA definition of antisemitism debate; assisted the Victorian Government to draft laws to ban the display of the Nazi Swastika; protected Jewish lives by working tirelessly with the Victorian Health Department during the Covid-19 pandemic; hosted the largest ever Victorian audience for a Yom HaShoah Commemoration and continued to provide a community platform through regular JCCV Plenums

The JCCV has also worked with many Jewish and non-Jewish organisations to deliver a range of programs. These include antisemitism training for Victorian state school teachers; Jewish familiarisation programs for staff at Glen Eira, Port Phillip and Stonnington councils; allocating $3 million via the Victorian Jewish Bushfire Relief Appeal to rural communities in need; developing the JCCV First Nations Reconciliation Program framework and engaging in consultation to help progress on the Jewish Schools Project and Fee Assessment Board.

The JCCV seeks to continue to connect, coordinate, strengthen and provide leadership for our community. That is why we are seeking the community’s assistance through our appeal.

Daniel Aghion, President of the JCCV said: “In the past year, the JCCV has led the community through the pandemic, worked to achieve positive outcomes for the community with government and educated against antisemitism. We need your support to continue this work into 2023.”
