SBS Yiddish with Alex Dafner: Australian Jewish community was shocked by the virulent anti-Semitic online....find out the latest from the Australian Jewish community in Yiddish
The Australian Jewish community was shocked by the virulent antisemitic online and telephoned abuse against them, following the video revelation of an illegal engagement party and reports of secret minyamin meetings, among the Jewish religious communities in Melbourne’s East St Kilda during the strict lockdown imposed on the city and much of the state of Victoria.
Australian Jewish professors, doctors, health workers, education, religious and community leaders have again urged members of the Australian Jewish community to get vaccinated against Covid-19’s Delta variant, with any vaccine available to them, as fast as possible and to dispel the misinformation about the dangers and fear of vaccination.
Many Australians and Jewish Australians in particular, have expressed their grave concerns over the growing activities of Neo-Nazi and White Supremacist organisations here, as was revealed in an extensive report in The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, by an undercover researcher.
The Executive Council of Australian Jewry, ECAJ, has urged the Australian Government to follow other democratic nations and to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s Working Definition of Antisemitism, as a useful guide for its departments, the courts, media, educational and other institutions, regarding this important issue.
