SBS Yiddish report: with Alex Dafner, Melbourne Jewish schools & colleges welcomed back their students and more news.

Serious differences of opinion continued to be expressed within and outside the Jewish community following the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s announcement that the Government will adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism, with the more leftist Jewish organisations in opposition and the mainstream and right organisations for the adoption.

 

Malka Leifer’s lawyers are considering obtaining expert advice about her fitness to stand trial in Victoria, over 70 charges relating to child sexual abuse, allegedly committed by her at the Israel-Addass school in Melbourne between 2004 and 2008, when she suddenly left Australia for Israel and where she had undergone such tests over a number of years, before being extradited back here.

 

Jewish schools and colleges in Melbourne welcomed back their students in a phased return to school, following a prolonged learning from home lockdown in the state of Victoria, because of the ongoing Covid-19 epidemic .
