Professor Gillian Triggs, the former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission addressed the three-day convention. Two ex-South Africans, Vic Alhadeff, the Chief Executive of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, and Ronnie Kahn, the founder and Chief Executive of OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food-rescue charity, kept the audience spellbound with their presentations.

Delegates visited the Sydney’s Great Synagogue, attended a talk on the history of Jews of Sydney, and were warmly received at a reception by the Lord Mayor at the Sydney Town Hall.

Four South African members of the UJW were appointed to the council’s executive committee.
