32 people from 10 countries became Australian Citizens at JewishCare’s Citizenship Ceremony, the first such ceremony in JewishCare’s new headquarters in Saber Street.
Malcolm Turnbull officiated and local member for Vaucluse Gabrielle Upton was in attendance along with Allan Vidor President of JewishCare
Thanks to a generous donation from Diane Burger and her family, in memory of David Burger AM, a bronze sculpture has now been permanently installed in the foyer of JewishCare’s headquarters in Saber Street, Woollahra.
The piece was made by Carol Lehrer Crawford who explained “The 3 pieces of the sculpture must be interlocked otherwise they will fall to the ground. This is a metaphor for life as well as the support that JewishCare provides to the community”.
JewishCare’s Big Brother Big Sister program held a four day pilot workshop which provided an opportunity for five girls to explore their thoughts, ideas and dreams through various art mediums, in a supportive small group setting.
The four day pilot program was very successful with new friendships being and amazing artworks produced.
The program aims to offer more small group programs in 2013
