First-Ever First Nations-Jewish Interactive Online Course: Beit Sefer Yalbalinga, June 2021 hosted by the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies at the Sydney Jewish Museum.
This is a series of five lectures that will focus on the shared history of the Jewish and First Nations communities. It is focused on ensuring the survival of two ancient cultures, with both peoples having endured persecution and recognising the importance of speaking out against injustice.
They have similarly focused on positives: walking in two worlds; protecting and enriching heritage, traditions and beliefs; and ensuring that younger generations continue to transmit and also benefit from cultural knowledge and values.
The lineup panellists is truly extraordinary, including Senator Pat Dodson, Justice Stephen Rothman AM, Professor Henry Reynolds, Rabbi Dr Benjamin Elton, Tony McAvoy SC-FJC, Dr Avril Alba, Marcus Stewart, Rabbi Jeffrey Kamins OAM, Pastor Ray Minniecon and others.
