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.
