#26 Dinkum Diaspora: Highlights of Australian Jewish History (part 4)

This final lecture in the Highlights of Australian Jewish History series examines the years between the 1930s to 1960s. In this podcast episode, David Solomon discusses the contributions made by a number of the key rabbis of this period. He also explores the debate within the Australian Jewish community around Zionism; its response to Jewish migration from Egypt and Eastern Europe; and the remarkable impact of the Jewish day school movement on the community.
