2023 Communal Event
Culture, Engagement & Outreach

People connect to Judaism in different ways. You may have recently found your connection, may have lost your connection over time or may be looking for alternative ways to connect to fit your lifestyle.


Brandon Srot

Keynote Speaker

Charley Masnick - Y2i Student

Charley Masnick went on a BJE Israel program supported by Youth 2 Israel in 2022. Not only did she have an incredible cultural experience, but the trip allowed her to connect with her Jewish identity. While on the program, Charley was a member of the largest BJE NSW contingent in recent history to visit Israel; she had her bat mitzvah, a treasured memory. Charley will share why this experience has been pivotal in her Jewish journey and the impact she believes it will have on her as a lifelong member of the Sydney Jewish community.
