We look forward to welcoming you to the forthcoming Triennial B’nai B’rith Convention which will be held in Melbourne on 11- 12 September.
B’nai B’rith in our region is facing new challenges. How do we best respond to changing community needs and get more people involved in our activities? Discussion with our guest speakers and workshops on both days of the conference will enable all participants to have input into our future direction.
We are excited to have the international President of B’nai B’rith Seth Riklin join us and participate in the Convention. He has recently had meetings with Arab leaders in the UAE as part of a B’nai B’rith delegation and has also had an audience with the Pope in Rome. He will update us on the work of B’nai B’rith internationally.
We will also hear from Rabbi Alon Meltzer from Sydney’s Shalom College and from Tony Benbow OAM (head of the Lions Foundation) on how their organisations are trying to adapt to change in their communities and among their membership and what we can learn from their research and experience. We will also Zoom in with B’nai B’rith leaders from the UK and Israel. Their ideas will then be discussed at interactive workshops in the afternoon.
The social program has not been neglected. A jazzy cocktail party on Saturday and a sumptuous Gala Dinner on Sunday. Some formality will be restored the next day with the AGM and discussion on reports from projects and the election of office bearers.
