Sorry to Report - Tami De Vries

January 27, 2021.
After a cancer diagnosis three months ago, Tami has now succumbed to the disease. She had been buoyed by the love and support shown by her family and close friends, and displayed an amazing grace, acceptance, and self-possession from the moment she became aware of the illness and throughout treatment.

Bulletin Board 2021
A word from the Webmaster
A word from the Webmaster Posted on Monday, February 01, 2021

Our site, which began in 2002, tracks the lives of many of the people who were members of Betar in Australia starting from 1948.

Following the publication of the then current technology of the Betar history CD-ROM in 2000, and with the editorial help of Aaron Ninedek and John Goldlust, I published this website then named "Still Friends after 50 Years" and which morphed into "Still Friends after 60 Years" and now "Still Friends after 70 Years". Hopefully we can make it to the next increment.

Now, as the years go on, sadly our bulletins are filled with the passings of the generations. But the earlier times are still visible in the photographic and videographic records of happier days - reconnections with our friends in many different places, news of honors bestowed to many for the services they performed for their countries, and the ability to look up past friendships.

We hope that this history of a segment of Australian Jewish life will long be carried forward so that the next generations can reference our life in Australia.
