We would like to apologise for the email that was sent to you by one of our staff members. The email was inappropriate and not the reflection of the values of the Community Board of the Red Rattler Theatre Inc.
The Red Rattler Theatre Inc condemns racism of any kind.
The Red Rattler Theatre Inc. is a community theatre space which promotes diversity in a safe a respectful environment.
We welcome organisations from all cultures and walks of life and actively encourage cultural diversity.
Our content policies refer to ensuring a safe and respectful and inclusive environment for LGBTQI, culturally diverse and indigenous members of our community which includes creating a safe space for members of the Jewish community.
We also apologise that it has taken so long to respond to both your and Mr Vic Alhadeff’s email. As a nearly entirely volunteer run organisation.
With no full time staff, it has taken a few days for the email to be appropriately escalated to The Red Rattler community Board of Directors for review. Please be reassured, we have taken this incident very seriously.
We would like to welcome further conversation, in the hopes that we can discuss the possibility of future events Hillel might be able to hold in the space.
The entire community Board of Directors of the Red Rattler Theatre Inc.
Personally I do not for one moment believe the sincerity of this apology. I was very involved in this Green/Leftist area during the Marrickville Council’s boycott of Israel and the BDS action against Max Brenner.
I’ve seen these people in action and they hate with a vengeance.
I think they saw the groundswell against them and saw this being referred to the AHRC – Australian Human Rights Commission AND it maybe costing them money in legal fees.
I spoke earlier with the Director of Hillel and would urge you to direct your young family and friends to an excellent Jewish youth organisation.
