אויסטראַלישע פֿרײנד פֿון ייִדיש
AFOY is a charitable organisation dedicated to the promotion of Yiddish language and culture and the encouragement of community events in and about Yiddish.
In order to do this, AFOY organizes a number of events in Sydney (click for the Events Calendar)
and supports the Yiddish lectureship at The University of Sydney.
AFOY is also a supporter of events at Mandelbaum House.
AFOY has recent acquired the Yiddish library of the Jewish Folk Centre (now known as "HaMoadon") and the personal library of Severyn Pejsachowicz (z"l). To this we've also added a number of classic vinyl recordings donated by David Wine. The collection is being temporarily housed in The Archive of Australian Judaica, where it is being sorted, inventoried and catalogued by students of the Yiddish course at Sydney Uni and members of AFOY.
