White Ribbon Day, the international day for elimination of violence against women falls on 25th November and JewishCare will again be holding its Annual Men's Breakfast
This will be the fifth Men's Breakfast that JewishCare has staged and the event has grown significantly. The first Men's Breakfast which was held in the Board Room started with 30 people and now this year well over 100 men are expected to attend. The event will be held in the Community Lounge at Saber Street where the first woman will deliver the keynote address, none other than former Democrat leader and currently Chair of the Foundation to Prevent Violence Against Women, Natasha Stott Despoja AM.
JewishCare previously extended the Men's Breakfast to a campaign known as 16 Days, 16 Rabbis and 16 Synagogues which encouraged 16 Rabbis to prioritise the topic of domestic violence to their congregations for a period of 16 Days. Such has been the success of this campaign that this year over 30 Rabbis will be involved.
