Rededication of the Jewish Pioneer Cemetery in East Perth

December 10, 2017
The history of the Jewish community in WA can be traced to the first settlement in 1829 of the Swan River Colony. In the almost 190 years that have passed the Jewish community has made an outstanding contribution to the commercial, cultural and political life of WA. Today I joined the Chief Rabbi of the WA Congregation, Dovid Freilich, the Perth Hebrew Congregation, and the National Trust of WA at the rededication of the Jewish Cemetery in East Perth.
