On Thursday 13th December, BBVic hosted the final Speakers Forum for the year. Over 120 people were in attendance to hear our guest speaker, Zeddy Lawrence (National Editor of The Australian Jewish News), share his incredible insights on the topic 'Behind the News: the Role of the Jewish Press,' followed by a Q&A.
BBVic Presentations were awarded that evening to:
Evelyn & Malcolm Flitman - George Huppert Memorial Award
P/P Ruth Figdor - B'nai B'rith Recognition Award
P/P Leah Black - Certificate of Appreciation
It was also announced that the annual Leah Black Youth Art Prize will now be included in the BBVic Jewish Youth Art Competition.
These four BBVic members encapsulate the tenets of B’nai B’rith with their work both within the Jewish and wider communities.
