Monday, August 19th, 2013 - Australian Christians

An election forum with a difference - Rabbi Cowen of the Institute for Judaism and Civilisation raises the question of ethics to 5 candidates across the political spectrum. He is looking for consensus on fundamental anchor values in our society.


The 2013 federal election is notable for the incredible increase of new voices vying to be heard; the senate nominations this election being almost double that of the last. Many people appear to be stirred out of election apathy to consider core values.

In support of this, Rabbi Cowen of the Institute for Judaism and Civilization is hosting an ethics forum where values will be discussed across party lines by the majors and minors. The question he posits is:

'What are fundamental anchor values of our society and how do they figure in this election?' and 'What consensus is there on them by parties across the political spectrum?'

Participating candidates are:

Senator Eric Abetz, Liberal

Anthony Byrne MHR, Labor

Senator John Madigan, DLP

Vickie Janson, Senate Candidate, Australian Christians

Aidan McLindon, Senate Candidate, Family First

Date and time: 7.30 pm Tuesday evening 20 August 2013

Venue: Theatrette, Glen Eira City Hall, cnr Hawthorn and Glen Eira Roads, Caulfield

This forum is open to all.
