NE Bund

צפון מזרח בונד

The North East Victoria Chapter of the Jewish Labour Bund Inc. was formed in January 2019 to respond to the need for a progressive, activist, secular, Jewish organisation in the region. NE Bund encompasses regional centres and towns across the North East of Victoria including but not limited to: Wodonga, Wangaratta, Benalla, Beechworth, Rutherglen, Corryong, Tallangatta, Yarrawonga and Victoria's High Country.

Founding members, Chaver Ross (Wangaratta) and Chaver Daniel (Wodonga) have been instrumental in creating an active Jewish voice in North East Victoria - while taking a stand against injustice in the North East, Regional Victoria, Australia and across the world. 

Activities currently undertaken by NE Bund include:

  • Discussions

  • Campaigning

  • Social Trivia Nights

  • Activist History Tours of the Region

  • Bush shpatz'n

  • and much more

Our current campaigns include​

  • Funding for Rural Health from the Commonwealth

  • Totally Renewable for Yackandandah

  • Improved conditions for international farm workers in the North East.

  • Improved signage for Bund Creek, Daylesford (North East Honourary Community)

Latest News:

- Melbourne Bund Chaver Arnold Zable was invited to Albury LibraryMuseum for the launch of the Write Around the Murray festival program. We were inspired by stories of old Yiddishists and Bundists through Arnold's unique storytelling, which we shared with the wider Albury Wodonga community. We look forward to welcoming Arnold back to the North East in September during the festival proper.
