JCCV Statement on Moshe Feiglin Visit
12 October 2015
Jennifer Huppert, President of the Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) stated,
“Moshe Feiglin has expressed extremist views in the past regarding women, sexual orientation and political issues which are inconsistent with the values and policies of the Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV). These sorts of views are not representative of the Victorian Jewish community. They are damaging to social inclusion and social cohesion in our community, and we strongly condemn these divisive and corrosive statements.
In particular, the JCCV is opposed to any homophobia, biphobia or transphobia by whomever or whoever expresses it. It has no place in our community. Everyone of any sexual orientation or gender identity should be respected and be given equal opportunity to participate in and contribute to the community.”
