Clover Moore launched book to tell the story of Russian migrants

The Lord Mayor of City Clover Moore officially launched The book ‘ I love Life’ which documents the lives of a number of Russian migrants.

Allan Vidor President of JewishCare thanked The Lord Mayor for the grant that enabled the book to be written and printed. He noted the significant contribution that this group of migrants have made to our community and how important it is that this has now been documented.

Clover Moore said ‘This small book marks a big step forward for the Russian-Jewish community in our City. For the first time, your stories are being told, and told in a way which will reach not only Russian-speakers, but our English-speaking communities as well’
