Dear Friends,

On the eve of Passover, we are thrilled to let you know that we have TOTALLY SOLD OUT of 3,000 New Australian Haggadot . We have been overwhelmed by the community's response to this beautiful haggadah. Thank You!

It is has been a very busy start to the year for us:
  • 3 fantastic groups of bnei mitzvah kids completed our Stand Up ABC program. Still some spaces left for term 2.
  • Published 4 excellent articles on The Well (you can read them here).
  • Record numbers attending our Sudanese Refugee empowerment programs including our 2 homework clubs, iCan and our 2 womens groups in Dandenong (VIC) and Blacktown (NSW).
  • Our 2015 Fellowship kicked off with a retreat at Mossy Willow farm in Feb and an esteemed panel on Human Rights in March. You can read more about this year’s Fellows here.
It is fundraising season for us at Stand Up. As you are all well aware, Stand Up is reliant on the community and people like you to support the important work we do. This Pesach, please consider supporting us through a financial contribution here. You know that your money will be spent on educating and inspiring the Jewish community about issues of social justice, and empowering vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in Australia.
 
Over 200 awesome individuals give of their time and skills to make our programs happen. Please read about one of our star volunteers below. Every newsletter we will be profiling a different volunteer.

We hope that the New Australian Haggadah helps bring insightful and meaningful discussion to your Seder table this year. Wishing you all a happy Pesach and thank you for your ongoing support.

Volunteer Profile
Lisa Brandon has been a volunteer with our Darfuri homework club  in Sydney for the last 3 years. She tutors primary and secondary students from the Darfuri community each week. Lisa, in her own words:
 
“As refugees to this country, these families have faced challenges and experienced moments that I could never even begin to imagine.  I may have known it already, but it now definitely hits home how lucky I was growing up in Sydney and going to a Jewish day school.  When I talk to the parents and work with the kids, I see that the Darfur community values education as the Jewish community does.  I just have great respect for them and want to do my best to help where I can.”
