Monthly meetings for the 6Os plus age group.
Avenue for academics, professional and business retirees to hear high calibre speakers.
Our January meeting will be addressed by Rob Schneider, whose topic will be “Man and Nature in Israel”.
Rob has recently joined the Australian Friends of the Hebrew University as the National CEO.
Rob commenced his new role on the 1 November and travelled to Israel shortly afterwards to meet with relevant personnel of the HU from around the world and familiarise himself with the work of the HU .
Rob is very excited about his new role saying that “I have always had a kesher (link) with Israel but now I will be graduating to university level! When I was in Israel on the South African Jewish Day Schools Ulpan, it was my dream to one day study at the Hebrew University. I was unable to realise my dream then but in my new role, I hope to promote the Hebrew University to other potential students as well as to the community-at-large. I am proud that since arriving in Australia in 1999, I have had the privilege of serving some of the finest organisations in our community, the Jewish National Fund and the Sydney Jewish Museum but I am now ready to rekindle the flame of my youth – so aptly reflected in the logo of the Hebrew University – and help to ensure that this amazing institution should continue to serve as a beacon of light not just to those who study and work there but indeed to the world!”
We look forward to seeing you at our next meetings. For more information please contact our office at : 9389 2825
