ARZA Australia celebrates achievements

ARZA Australia celebrated being part of the group that helped pass a number of key resolutions at the recent World Zionist Congress (WZC) in Jerusalem, at its Annual General Meeting held on Sunday as it celebrated the outstanding achievements of outgoing President, Barbara Ford.

“To have prepared a resolution that was passed by the World Zionist Congress calling on the Government of Israel to fully implement the Declaration of Independence, was an important and emotional moment” said Ford “Particularly as ARZA Australia ensured that the Zionist Federation of Australia unanimously passed a similar resolution just as year or so ago.”

WUPJ President, Rabbi Danny Freelander, leads memorable launch

By Leanne Shelton

On 19 November, more than 100 Jews from around Australia and Asia gathered together to indulge in delicious food, meet with old and new friends, listen to an inspiring guest speaker, and sing along to some traditional songs in both familiar and new tunes.

The cocktail evening at North Shore Temple Emanuel (NSTE) in Chatswood was held to launch two stimulating, educational and musical conferences hosted by the Union for Progressive Judaism (UPJ): the Gathering of UPJ Presidents, Executive Committee and Rabbis, and Shir Chadash Jewish Music Conference.

After schmoozing over drinks and treats prepared by dedicated NSTE volunteers, attendees were honoured with the presence of keynote speaker Rabbi Danny Freelander, President of the World Union for Progressive Judaism. Rabbi Freelander spoke passionately about six strategic frames that every Progressive congregation needs to consider: demography, finances, change in governance, physical plant, worship and spirituality, and youth; a speech that had everyone’s attention and sparked many new ideas.

Teresa has kindly shared her ‘inspiring and moving faith experience’ -
