Born and raised in Sydney, Joshua was brought up in a Zionist family, infused with a love of Israel. This dedication to Israel led him to become actively involved in Keren Hayesod, one of The Jewish Agency’s strategic fundraising partners.
“Keren Hayseod and The Jewish Agency have worked together since before the State of Israel was even established, with Keren Hayesod raising key funds for The Jewish Agency around the world,” said Joshua. “And through this partnership, the impact these organizations have on Jews worldwide is incredible.”
As the former Chairman of the Young Leadership Division of Keren Hayesod New South Wales–Sydney, Joshua is passionate about helping build lasting bonds among young Jews in Sydney and Israel, which are critical to a strong Jewish future.
“I was taught that world Jewry has a responsibility to support Israel any way we can, but that doesn’t happen without powerful ties in place,” Joshua shared. “And The Jewish Agency is at the forefront, and always has been, in connecting Jews outside of Israel to the Jewish State. Those efforts are crucial, and I’m proud to be involved.”
Joshua has been a member of The Jewish Agency’s Aliyah and Connecting Jewish People Committees since November 2020. He’s also an Executive Member of Keren Hayesod in Sydney and has been involved with Keren Hayesod Australia since 2009.
