A delegation from the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia (NCJWA) inaugurated a new playground in Golda Park on ANZAC day. They also toured many other KKL-JNF projects for the advancement of people and the environment in the Negev. The activities of NCJWA strongly emulate the motto of organization founder Dr. Fanny Reading MBE: "Women working together can achieve anything."

"What could be more appropriate than to be in Golda Park on ANZAC Day, when we remember the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died for their country? We are thrilled to be here and to see your wonderful work." Di Hirsh, National President of the National Council of Jewish Women Australia, was speaking on Thursday, April 25, at the dedication ceremony of a new playground in Golda Park in the Negev. Ms. Hirsh was leading a delegation of thirteen NCJWA activists from Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra (and two husbands!) on a tour of Israel to visit the organization's projects in Israel, including sites jointly developed by NCJWA and KKL-JNF. KKL

"The partnership between NCJWA and KKL-JNF began in 1920 and was strengthened in the 1950s by our first mutual project at Neve Zipporah, which was named for our founder, Dr. Fanny (Zipporah) Reading. Since then, we have contributed towards forests, reservoirs, recreation and water recycling. We've had an excellent time here together and many members have a new understanding of what KKL-JNF does. We look forward to an ongoing partnership over many, many years," Ms. Hirsh concluded.
