Queens Birthday Honours

June 17, 2010

Australian Jews had a  reason to celebrate this week after being named among almost 500 Australians to be honoured on the Queen’s birthday. Inset above is Ron Weiser.

The Australian Jewry has been a huge part of the Australian Community, contributing to business, the arts, medicine and community service.

Some notable recipients over the weekend were Graham Samuel from the ACCC, who was awarded the Companion of the Order (AC), as well as the Chief Judge of the County Court of Victoria Justice Michael Rozenes.

Dr Saul Weiner, the founder of kosher Meals on Wheels was also awarded the AM for his work on the field of anti-venoms. Quoted in the AJN, Saul said “I was very elated about receiving such an honour from the Queen,” he said. “But I was just happy that I managed to do something in my active life to pay back the Australian people for giving me refuge in this country.”

Dr Ron Weiser (pictured above) received an AM for his service to the community through leadership roles with the Zionist Federation of Australia and the promotion Australia-Israeli relations.
