The Zionist Federation of Australia (ZFA) has welcomed Prime Minister Morrison’s announcement of 55 million dollars in grants to increase security, following the terrorist attacks in New Zealand.
President of the ZFA, Jeremy Leibler said, “We warmly welcome the Federal Government’s commitment to keeping Australia’s religious communities safe, including the Jewish community which faces a growing threat”.
“As Jews we know all too well what it is like to live in fear. The Tree of Life massacre in Pittsburgh is still fresh in our minds and of course the horrific terrorist attack against two Mosques in New Zealand last week,” Mr Leibler added.
“Our community does not take for granted the bipartisan support for religious protections in Australia. We appreciate the financial support announced by the Morrison Government which will enable our community to continue gathering and practicing its religious practices, free from persecution,” Mr Leibler concluded.
