If you would like to support us in our fight against racial intolerance through raising awareness of Jewish history and culture then click the button.

We are currently raising funds toward:

  1. Holocaust Education:  With the Jewish Federation, we are supporting the annual speaking tour of a Holocaust Survivor from Israel.  In this way New Zealand high school students can interact first hand with a survivor, bringing history to life.
  2. Holocaust Education:  A NCEA level professional development course for high school teachers on how to teach constructive ethics from the history of the Holocaust.  Why is such a course required?  Recently a number of Jewish families withdrew their children from a course on the Holocaust after a well-meaning but misguided teacher asked the children to plan how they would have assassinated Hitler if they had had the opportunity, as a homework assignment.  We believe more constructive ethical lessons can be drawn from the Holocaust and the story of the Jewish people.
  3. Fighting Christian Anti-Semitism:  Creating a library of bible study courses for Christians to re-acquaint them with the Hebraic roots of their faith.
  4. A scholarship for Kadimah College students.
  5. A Marquee speaker program.  We would like to introduce a colloborative program whereby Marquee speakers from the Jewish world could carry out an Australasian  lecture tour, covering issues relating to aspects of Jewish society that would be relevant to the rest of the world.  A marquee speaker could be R Jonathan Sachs, Alan Dershowitz or Ehud Barak.
  6. Fighting anti-semitism:  The recent conflict between Israel and Gaza reminds us of the connection between Anti-Semitism and the Middle East conflict.  Anti-Semitism is gathering momentum in Europe once more.  The need is great if history is not to be repeated.
