Today's column marks the second-year anniversary of Garry Fabian's diligent efforts to keep readers of San Diego Jewish World informed about developments in the Australian Jewish community. For those of us who live in other parts of the Diaspora, Fabian's ongoing column is a good point of reference as it describes similar situations, triumphs and problems that we all face as members of a minority group. It also offers insight into how we might approach similar situations. For Israeli readers, it may help further understanding about what it is like to live in a multicultural country in which Jews are but a small percentage of the population mix. We're glad that Fabian has been sending "Down Under" up and over!
San Diego Jewish World is happy to dedicate issues in this space to members of the Jewish community on special occasions. If you have someone you would like to honor or memorialize, please email Nancy Harrison, our advertising director, at (619) 255-0808. The symbolic cost for such a dedication is $18 (chai).We keep a list of these dedications in our archives.
