NCJWA Brisbane Section

Message from the President

NCJWA Brisbane Section started in 1927 after a friend of founder Dr Fanny Reading visited Brisbane. Since then Brisbane Section has continued with the tradition set by Dr Reading.

Although we are a small section we do Community Service work and fund raise for local Jewish and non-Jewish causes. Our donations go to organisations such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Angel Flight and Alzheimer's Association. We gave a part scholarship to a student at Sinai College and make a yearly donation to Gan-Gani Kindergarten.

As well as being involved in all National Projects we make a yearly donation to the MICHA Project - a school for Deaf Children in Israel.

Quilt Competition Winner

Terry Groen (left) was the lucky winner of a beautiful quilted throw which was made by Mira Myler. This quilt is absolutely unique in that the fabrics were purchased by Mira on a train trip through the middle of Australia where she found printed fabrics highlighting the wonderful art work of our indigenous people.

We have many wonderful women who are members of NCJWA Brisbane Section, some of whom have been members for over 50 years. We honoured our members who are four score and more at a special morning tea.
