Networking with Lawyers

Ben Walhaus adressing the crowd

On Sunday the 27th of August, together with GKH Law Offices, Telfed hosted a networking evening for Olim from Australia and South Africa working in the legal world. It was a successful event with more than 20 attendees enjoying refreshments and an opportunity to meet other lawyers in a familiar environment.




At the event, we were honoured to have Major Ben Walhaus, an Oleh from Australia, give a presentation about his experiences working as a lawyer in the IDF's International Law Department. In particular, Ben gave us insight into his departments' responsibilities with respect to Operation Protective Edge.




Through speaking with attendees, the event's organizers were also able to identify the challenges facing both new and veteran Olim in the legal world. Telfed anticipates that this event will kickstart new initiatives to give these Olim  working in the legal profession the assistance and resources they currently feel are lacking.



We also send a huge thank you to GKH Law Offices for hosting the event and making us feel so welcome.
