JEWISH COMMUNITY TO ADVISE MINISTER
“I wish to particularly acknowledge the role of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies in the formation of the Jewish MCC,” Ms Upton said.
Mr O’Dea said: “The Jewish MCC is a critical component of having a serious, respectful and meaningful relationship with our local Jewish community. As joint chair, I look forward to its views and ideas, including on how to best recognise the contributions of Australians of Jewish heritage to our diverse and vibrant society.”
The initial group of Ministerial Consultative Committees will be officially launched on Friday, 25 November 2011 at NSW Parliament House. Further MCCs will be formed thereafter on the community’s request.
