Repairing the world, one artwork at a time

By Toni Whitmont

At first glance, you wouldn’t think there was a connection between South Korean villages and Daly River in the Northern Territory, nor between Jerusalem and Sydney’s northern suburbs Jewish and Aboriginal communities. Last weekend however,  at  the Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) exhibition held at the North Shore Temple Emanuel in Chatswood, the links were not only palpable, they were pulsating with the energies of nearly 40 artists, all presenting their one shared vision in their four shared languages. That vision? LISTEN – DADIRRI – TISHMA – DEUDGI.

The brain child of Jewish Art Inc’s Estelle Rozinski, Tikkun Olam is already living up to its name, with expanded exhibitions and collaborations in the works with artists in Nauiya (Daly River), Zdunska Wola the town in Poland where some of Rozinski’s pre-Holocaust family lived, and Israel.

Packages for Homeless collection campaign

Throughout April-May, two Sydney-based youth organisations will be running a Packages for Homeless collection campaign.

Sydney Nerdfighters’ Packages for Homeless (who ran a similar campaign in 2014) and The Sydney Deluminators (who NSTE supported in their book drive in 2014) will be working together to collect backpacks full of necessities from across Sydney, which will then be distributed to people in need on Sydney’s streets.

We have established several collection points across Sydney, one of which will be in the foyer of North Shore Temple Emanuel from the 14th of April - 28th of June.
