Come Together is a conversation program that will be co-delivered by Jewish and First Nations facilitators. Through the program we’re aiming to bring First Nations voices, stories and histories into Jewish households and institutions and build the capacity of our community to act as allies for First Nations peoples.
We're very excited to be partnering with Children's Ground to develop and deliver this program. Children’s Ground is an organisation led by Aboriginal communities that are creating new futures for Children filled with promise, hope and empowerment. They are creating a world where First Nations children can have agency over their social, cultural, political and economic future, be free from trauma and suffering, enjoy equity and safety, and grow into adulthood feeling happy and able to enjoy their identity, health and wellbeing.
There are three ways you can be involved:
- Host a conversation: Offer to host a conversation with friends or family at your home or business and we’ll do the rest
- Join a conversation: Come along to one of our sessions to hear from First Nations speakers, connect Jewish values with First nations justice and learn how to be allies for First Nations peoples
- Run a conversation: Get trained up to deliver our unique conversations program with an Aboriginal speaker in Jewish homes and communities in Melbourne and Sydney
