Meet some of the leading lights in the Australian alternative living scene, and Aboriginal elders who share their own wisdom on the indigenous way of Dadirri or ‘deep listening’, which translates as a form of connection to land and people also underpinning the “alternative” way of life.

The William Kaye Memorial Study in Israel Scholarship 2015-2016
A scholarship fund has been established in the memory of the late Hon. William Kaye AO, a long-standing member of the Leo Baeck Centre, to assist people to study in and develop their relationship with Israel. It is particularly intended to assist those who would otherwise struggle to fund such a study visit.
Eligibility: Any person of any religion who is resident in Australia or New Zealand may apply. They must plan to undertake a study program in Israel for 16 days or more, of which at least half must be on a formal study course. The course and its institution must be open, just and equitable to students and must not denigrate any group or approach to Judaism.
Award: The total annual sum is usually $6000 and it is expected that the award amounts may be between $2000 and $3000.
