The Jewish Community Taskforce continues to advise our community regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and security of our community is our paramount priority. We are especially mindful of those most vulnerable in our families, friendship groups and workplaces, and those most isolated.
We are continually reviewing directives from the Government and Department of Health to inform and protect members of our community in a changing environment.
We are working closely with the Executive Council of Australian Jewry who as the national Jewish roof-body are proactively assisting with information and services to assist nationally. For updates follow DHHS Victoria Website here.
