Australian Jewish Democratic Society Annual Dinner
An evening in Solidarity with Pittsburgh
Please join us for the AJDS Annual Dinner, this year organised to send our love and solidarity to the bereaved communities in Pittsburgh. In these terrible times we stand firm in our dedication and passion to fighting racism and fostering justice within and beyond our communities.
We will be joined over Skype by Rafael Shimunov in New York speaking about the aftermath of the shooting and how communities are standing together against antisemitism and white nationalism. Raphael is a board member of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ), an early leader at IfNotNow, and a Bend the Arc Fellow for the Jews of Color cohort.
We know that the shooter targeted the Tree of Life community for their commitment to solidarity with refugees. And so we continue our tradition of welcoming the stranger, and are supporting refugee enterprises to cater this event.
Food will be catered by Zafu foods, Ethiopian & Eritrean cuisine, and delicious homemade Palestinian desserts.
If you would like to support us but can’t make it to the dinner, or would otherwise like to support someone to come along, you can now book a ‘Pay it forward: Chanukah sponsorship of new AJDS ally’ ticket through our online booking!
