Tseitchem leshalom

ה' אדר ב' ה' אלפים תשס"ח

The President, Executive and Board of the COSV would like to wish David and Chana Walles and family a Tzeitchem leshalom and all the best for the future on the occasion of their departure for Israel on Aliyah.

Aside from his involvement as a Board Member of the the Council of Orthodox Synagogues of Victoria (where he set up our website), David and Chana have a substantial history of benefiting the community and participation in communal work.

Their manifold activities have included:

  • David served for 10 years as Baal Koreh/Chazan Sheni/Youth Director at the Melbourne Hebrew Congregation which was also the venue of the brit of his eldest son - the first brit to take place at that shul in many years.
  • Both Chana and David have taught scores of kids for their Bar and Bat Mitzvah ceremonies.
  • They led over 120 University students on 5 separate groups to Israel on the Jerusalem Fellowship program run by Aish HaTorah and coordinated various follow up rabbinic visits to Australia on behalf of Aish Hatorah.


  • They were founding board members and were heavily involved with the establishment of the Yesodei Hatorah College.
  • David held the Aliyah portfolio at the State Zionist Council
  • And of course their Oz Kosher Pesach Getaways which hosted hundreds of guests from both the local and International Jewish community for the annual Pesach Getaway at various locations ranging from the Gold Coast to Lorne.

These will long be remembered and missed.

We wish the Walles family all the best and many smachot in the future

Stay tuned the best is yet to come....
