Hello, I’m Abe Schwarz.
I am available to consult for project management, philanthropic fundraising, strategic planning & public speaking.
I specialise in interfaith, indigenous and social justice issues and grassroots solutions.
Abe has worked for many years in the Youth and Community Development sectors for both Jewish and mainstream organisations in Australia – and 4 intriguing years of Interfaith Dialogue and Tour-Guiding in Jerusalem, whilst studying Rabbinic and Torah Jewish sources – and raising a young family.
Outside of family, he devotes extensive time to promoting cultural diversity, Jewish education, Aboriginal reconciliation and Interfaith Harmony – formally as Honorary Secretary of C.O.M.M.O.N. – the Centre Of Melbourne Multifaith & Others Network.
Catalyst frequently gets invited to address public meetings and conferences on interfaith and indigenous themes.
Additionally, Abe presents to schools
through the Jewish Christian Muslim Association (JCMA), writes and broadcasts on related topics including for Gesher, the Journal of the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ).
Known for his interest and energy with Aboriginal and Interfaith communities – and for bringing the story of Uncle Boydie’s Dream to Queen Elizabeth II, the Governor-General and the German Government.
