Becoming Australian - three generations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Australian Jewish communities are, in large part, a product of post-War immigration. The expectation of governments was that Jews, along with other immigrants, would assimilate, with loss of language, values and outlook. But this did not happen as anticipated. This discussion will consider the nature of Jewish integration over three generations – and likely changes in Jewish life over the next decades.
