Forum refused a place in Limmud Oz program to go ahead as independent event

(From The Australian Jewish Democratic Society)

LimmudX: Too hot to handle?

A public forum with some of the contributors to the recently published book: Beyond Tribal Loyalties: Personal Stories of Jewish Peace Activists : Sivan Barak, Peter Slezak, Vivienne Porzsolt, David Langsam, Nicole Erlich, and Avigail Abarbanel (editor).

This forum was refused a place, without explanation, in the program of Limmud Oz 2012, the Festival of Jewish Learning. It is being held in the public interest as an independent event.

Each of the speakers will briefly speak about their contribution to the book. The session will then be open for questions and answers.

The forum will be chaired by June Factor, a long-term advocate of free speech in Australia and a past president of Liberty Victoria. Dr Factor is also an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Centre, University of Melbourne.

Where? Monash University, Building B Room 2.18 Monash University, Caulfield Campus, Sunday 10 June 3-4.30pm.

All members of the public are welcome. Free entry. Please note that entry to Limmud Oz requires payment.

Forum organised by: Sivan Barak, Peter Slezak, Vivienne Porszolt, David Langsam, Nicole Erlich, and Avigail Abarbanel.

Supported by Liberty Victoria and the Australian Jewish Democratic Society.

Building location: If you get onto the Monash Caulfield Campus, go to the open grassed area. Look to the side with the buildings that have a walkway and what look like cheese sticks. Just beyond the trees at the left end is the Library (building A). Go up the stairs which is level 2. Right opposite the Library in a tiny plaza-like area, is Building B. Room 2.18 is at the back of that floor and will be clearly marked. If you are attending Limmud Oz, Building B is to the left of the cheese sticks that face onto Building H where Limmud Oz is being held. See this photo on Google Maps. Building H is the red brick building on the left. Notice the cheese sticks.
