National Council of Jewish Women of Australia: 85th anniversary
Written on the 28 November 2012
I had the great pleasure last Tuesday of presenting a certificate from the state government and the Premier to the president of the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia, Victoria, Vivien Brass, recognising 85 years of service by the organisation to the community. Founded in 1923 by Dr Fanny Reading, the NCJWA became affiliated in 1925 with the International Council of Jewish Women. There is no doubt that Dr Reading's vision has motivated various leaders and volunteers in their commitment to making a difference to communities.
