MEMBERS of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria (RCV) executive last week met with both Premier Daniel Andrews and Opposition Leader Matthew Guy, in what has become a tradition in the lead-up to Rosh Hashanah.

The meeting with Andrews provided an opportunity to discuss areas of mutual concern and to thank the Premier for the ongoing support of his office and that of the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship.

Meanwhile, the Premier expressed his appreciation of the RCV’s religious leadership in the community and reaffirmed his government’s commitment to the safety and security of the local Jewish community and Israel.

“Victoria is a better place thanks to the leadership and contribution of the Jewish community. It is always a pleasure to meet with rabbinical leadership before we head into the High Holy Days. I wish all Jewish people a Shanah tovah umetukah,” Andrews said.
