This year marked the 41st year that B’nai B’rith Victoria (BBVic) has been paying tribute to volunteers who give unstintingly of their time, working quietly behind the scenes for the benefit of the community. Four exceptional women were recipients of the 2018 Menorah Awards: Jacqui Dinor-Corry, Timmy Rubin, Cynthia Pollak and Karin Zafir. Guest Speaker was Dr Danny Lamm AM who spoke about “Israel and the Diaspora in 2018.” The evening was held at Beth Weizmann and was huge success with family, friends and members of BBVic mixing and schmoozing afterwards over refreshments.
BBVic’s Combined Meeting held Sunday, 25th March 2018 was “packed to the rafters” with members and guests attending BBVic’s 1st Combined Meeting for 2018. Guest Speaker was Prof. Andrew Markus whose topic: Anti-Semitism & islamophobia: patterns of thought analysed was well received and findings discussed by everyone throughout the afternoon. Presentation of the BBVic Appreciation Award to PP Irene Bud for her many years of dedicated service to BBVic as Auditor and Treasurer of multiple projects and her Unit. Hand clapping and top tapping entertainment was by: Sibling Revelry - with an eclectic range of music from Yiddish, Hebrew to Jazz and people were even dancing in the aisles.
Don’t miss out on BBVic’s next Combined Meeting which will be held on Sunday, 29th July.
