Beth Weizmann Jewish Community Centre has today advised the organisers of an event planned for 10 September 2017 and titled “The Threat of Islam to Jews” that they will not be able to hold their event at the Centre.


Chair of Beth Weizmann Sam Tatarka said “Beth Weizmann prides itself as a community venue that fosters harmony and inclusion whilst allowing for the broad expression of views from all parts of the Jewish Community of Melbourne.  Having just become aware of the details of the event (which had been booked as a “public speaker”) and after due consideration “we have decided that we are not prepared to have the Jewish Community Centre of Melbourne used for or associated with an event that on its face, seeks to foment fear and hatred.”
