The Australian Jewish Democratic Society (AJDS) has been associated with the Renate Kamener Orations in the past, as Renate was a dear member and supporter of AJDS. The choice of speakers has always been up to the Kamener Family, and we are participating again this year in order to honour her and raise funds for indigenous students.  We will bring concerns about the current choice of speaker to the Kamener Family.
