Sydney Jewish LGBTI community group Dayenu will hold its annual general meeting at 3pm on Sunday, October 30 in St Leonards.

Outgoing president Roy Freeman plans to move overseas in 2012 and told the Star Observer he hoped his successor would be able to fulfil the role until the next AGM.

“I’m very sad to be stepping down,” Freeman said. “[But] I will still be around for the next few months to help organise Dayenu’s Mardi Gras float as well as our annual Mardi Gras Shabbat service and dinner.

“This AGM is a great opportunity for members of Dayenu to come along and let us know how we’ve done over the last year. I encourage all members of the Jewish GLBTI community to get involved and help take Dayenu to the next level.”

As president and working with the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies (JBD) and the Union for Progressive Judaism (UPJ), Freeman helped bring about JBD’s statement of respect for LGBTI people and the UPJ rabbinate’s declaration of support for marriage equality.
