A DELEGATION of young Australians has visited Israel’s Arava region for four days of volunteer work. The 59 Australasian Union of Jewish Students (AUJS) members, on the AUJS Academy-Onward Israel program, paid a visit to the region under the Arava-Australia partnership, part of the Jewish Agency for Israel’s Partnership 2gether venture, coordinated locally by the Zionist Federation of Australia.

THE Israeli government and the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) should support Israelis living in the Diaspora, who risk losing their Israeli identity as they settle into their new homes. That’s the view of Brigadier General Azriel Nevo, the former military secretary to four Israeli prime ministers between the years of 1981 and 1993.

EDUCATORS can be more instrumental than parents in inspiring students to return to their Jewish roots. That was the message from Rabbi Benjamin Lau, the host of a weekly TV program in Israel, Haaretz columnist, and founder of a number of higher-learning institutions in Israel, when he addressed the Zionist Federation of Australia’s Educators’ Conference this week.
