Final day in Melbourne ends with Rami and Bassam speaking to politicians and school kids
During two weeks on the ground in Sydney, Australia and Melbourne Rami and Bassam managed to touch the hearts of over 2600 people, often bringing audiences to tears. This included school children from six Jewish day schools, young adults from youth movements, university students and staff, sold out public events in all three cities and meetings with politicians from the Liberal, Labor and Greens parties.
Their final day in Melbourne included speaking to Years 8-10 at Bialik College followed by a meeting at the Victorian Parliament House with the Liberal member for Caulfield David Southwick and the Labor member for Box Hill Paul Hamer, the two leaders of Victoria’s Parliamentary Friends of Israel.
As they return to Israel and Palestine we remember their goal to put cracks in the wall and bring in a little light.
