Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah Colleges and Parents’ Association were pleased to welcome over 200 guests to The River Room at Crown Casino for a Corporate Breakfast event in early November. Attendees enjoyed a morning of mingling mixed with illuminating and informative addresses – with His Excellency, Mr Mark Sofer in attendance as keynote speaker.
The morning kicked off with Dr Miriam Munz welcoming the corporate guests, Rabbonim, dignitaries and politicians in attendance and was followed by recitation of Tehillim by Rabbi Yaakov Glasman and Mr Chaim Kingsley.
An address from Rabbi Yehoshua Smukler (Principal of Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah Colleges) examined the benefits and challenges of technology in today’s age, highlighting that “at YBR we recognise technology as an integral tool and we educate our students to become the techno-ethical leaders of tomorrow”.
Speaking on the topic “Education and Technology in Israel”, it was a privilege to have His Excellency, Mr Mark Sofer, Ambassador of Israel to Australia attend as Keynote Speaker. He discussed the impact that Israeli technologies have had on the world and what we have achieved, and continue to achieve, despite our comparatively small population numbers on the world stage. Further, he delved into the question of how Israel has developed into the technological hub that it is today.
Yeshivah - Beth Rivkah thanks all the generous supporters, attendees and sponsors of the event (Gold Sponsors – Wingate and Scott Winton; Silver Sponsors – Lowe Lippmann and Wilson Agents) who help Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah continue to provide a quality Jewish education to a broad cross-section of the Melbourne Jewish Community.
