The ZDVO Beit Halochem Australia recently held a highly successful awareness campaign in Sydney and Melbourne during September 2015.
Both communities were inspired by ZDVO’s guest speakers, two veteran Israeli soldiers, both injured in different circumstances whilst fighting to protect the State of Israel.
Colonel (Res.) Amnon Sharon, a former POW during the Yom Kippur War and Ziv Eliyahu, injured whilst patrolling the Gaza border in 2013 each shared their inspiring stories of survival with hundreds of people of all ages across almost two weeks of events.
The many functions included a sold out screening of the Israeli film, Beneath the Helmet that received rave reviews. Other events included visits to the Jewish Day schools and synagogues, whiskey tastings, a women’s brunch, business lunches and evening parlour meetings.
