Speiser was filmed at the JNF event “Bringing Life to the Negev”. She also addressed meetings at Chabad and the Perth Hebrew Congregation.

Over 200 people attended the function at the Perth Jewish Centre,

JNF’s Ganif Poleg-Spark said: “Allison’s inspirational and vitally important speech is out there for everyone to see. From only 200 hundred people we can now reach thousands. It is so important for Merchav Am people to see how wonderfully Allison is representing them.”

Allison spoke about Merchav Am, the community where she lives in the Negev. Merchav Am, with its 60 families, is a project of JNF WA and the OR movement.

The other visiting speakers were Ofir Fisher, VP of the Or Movement andson of world renowned chazan, Dudu Fisher and an Israeli IDF officer.
