An elderly Jewish woman in Sydney died of the highly infectious Delta variant....This story and more news listen to SBS Yiddish report with Alex Dafner

An elderly Jewish woman in Sydney was the first person to die of the highly infectious Delta variant of the Coronavirus, as Jewish leaders in the city appealed to the Jewish community to get vaccinated and warned against breaking the lockdown rules that were imposed there two weeks ago.

Millie Philips a very generous philanthropist and one of the richest women in Australia, has died at the age of 92 in Sydney, having overcome great poverty in her childhood in Poland, a poor education, a divorce and single parenthood in Australia, to become a highly successful businesswoman and community activist.

Sydney Holocaust survivor Itzhak Veltman recalled the 80th anniversary since the destruction of his Ukrainian village of Zhabokrich’s Jewish community and murder of 435 of its Jews in July 1941, when he was just 5 years old and where he and several other survivors have built a monument to their memory...

The Jewish community in Brisbane celebrated together with the rest of their city and Australia in general, the announcement that the 2032 Olympics will take place there, whilst three Jewish Australians, Jessica Fox in canoe slalom, Jemima Montag in walking racing and Steve Solomon, a 400m runner, were in Tokyo with the current Australian Olympic team waiting to compete in the delayed 2020 Olympics.
