SBS Yiddish with Alex Dafner: The new permanent Israeli Ambassador to Australia, Amir Maimon and his wife Tal arrived in Canberra and more news

The new permanent Israeli Ambassador to Australia, Amir Maimon and his wife Tal arrived in Canberra and promptly set-out to meet leaders of the Melbourne and Sydney Jewish communities, declaring their pleasure at undertaking their new post and their excitement re the task of promoting further growth of trade and co-operation between the two friendly nations.

The Australian Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and the Israeli Sheba Medical Centre will join forces to research the causes of the Rett syndrome, a disorder which afflicts one in ten thousand girl babies.

The discussions re the Sydney Festival Board’s reaction to the boycott of the festival by some artists and performers, because of the Israeli Embassy subsidy to the Sydney Dance Company to perform a tribute to the Bat Sheva Israeli dance company, continued this week with criticism from some politicians and Jewish leaders of the board chairperson David Kirk’s apology to artists participating or withdrawing from the festival.
