B’nai B’rith NSW in partnership with both the JNF and Australian Jewish News have launched this year’s The Change Makers – Jewish Youth & Young Adults Achievement Awards which has been advertised in the JNews.
The age groups are: Youth 14-18 years (though if you know of an outstanding youth who is younger than 14 - they will be also considered) and Young Adults 18-35. Categories: SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITY, SUPPORT FOR THE AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY, LEADERSHIP & SUPPORT FOR THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
Please go onto the link below to find out in more detail about these categories. This is a wonderful way to acknowledge the work of our youth and young adults - so if you know of someone who “fits the bill” don’t hesitate to nominate them. https://ajn.timesofisrael.com/changemakers/

Nominations need to be received by Monday, 16 November. Every nominee will receive a Certificate of Participation and will be featured in the JNews.
Making a Difference – a Project of Lodge Melbourne Mitzvah
Making a Difference has been in operation since 1996. Our purpose is to support financially disadvantaged Jewish students in our community, whether they attend a State school or a Jewish school. We support students going into year 11 and year 12, as it was felt that it is these two years which are critical for students to achieve success.
Money is raised through the support of our members, their families and friends. We receive donations when a variety of events are celebrated and we are grateful for each donation. Since 1996 we have donated over $220,000 to some 280 students. We welcome donations from all.
Our banking details are:
