Paweł Bramson Visit

June 13, 2013

The ASPJ was pivileged to host Paweł Bramson’s visit to Melbourne, accompanied by his wife, Paolina, and daughter Zuzanna, to tell our community the story of his amazing life transformation.

The visit was also intended to emphasize that in Poland, today, every day, someone else discovers their Jewish identity and that these people deserve every support that we can give them.

The highlight of Paweł’s visit was the screening of his film “The Moon is Jewish”. Over 200 people attended the event at Glen Eira Town Hall. Following the screening, Paweł answered questions from the audience and met with them over coffee afterwards.

During his time in Melbourne, Rabbi Pawlak visited some of Melbourne's Jewish schools ....

And then, they relaxed a little ….
