Creating the next generation – Australian Jewish News

After a hiatus of more than three years, the Australian Jewish Fertility Network (AJFN) brings the community together in a multimedia theater production supporting one in six families in the community currently experiencing infertility.

A live video diary, live music, and on-stage performances bring a young couple’s fertility journey to life.

The evening will also include work from embryologist Jenna Pinchuk (Genea), fertility counselor Sarah Reid (Genea) and renowned fertility specialist Dr Raewyn Teirney of IVF Australia.

Rebecca Featherstone, one of the world’s first IVF babies, gives us a new perspective on the impact of fertility treatments, not just on babies, but on creating whole new lives.

AJFN’s recently appointed CEO Justine Seidman said:

“I know our audience will be absolutely blown away.”

Over the past three years, AJFN has witnessed unprecedented demand for financial grants and emotional support services due to the increased economic and emotional pressures caused by COVID.

Currently, 44 families are awaiting assistance to continue their efforts to build families.

“You’ve heard the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise a child,’ but AJFN often realizes that it really takes a village to raise a child,” said AJFN President Kelly Gonski. I know.

“More than just doing miracles for one family, we are creating the next generation and ensuring the continuity of our community,” she said.

This year’s event follows AJFN’s One in Six documentary, which was broadcast nationally to over 450,000 viewers on ABC in June.

The major event will be held at the University of New South Wales Roundhouse and will be broadcast online on Wednesday 10 August 2022.
