Every Wednesday morning around 7.45 some of the old (and I mean old) Sydney Betarim do breakfast at roving locations. Regular frersers are Keith Masnick, Richard Sekel, Peter Keeda, Jan Poddebsky and Norman Sarajinsky. Michael Price drops in occasionally as does Adam (Ari) Graycar, Brian Pelerman, Moses Aaron, Les Berger, Shula Endrey Walder (Rosenfeld) and brother Dov, Judy Kovendi, Ruth Ratner (Eisokovits) and Liz Kornharber (Schneider). D. Golomb esq and H. Ben Ezra (Bish) have also been known to attend. Anyone interested can email Keith and he will pass on the next location.

He has won Australia's 2007 Clunies Ross Medal. The ATSE Clunies Ross Awards go to scientists and engineers from Victoria, Western Australia, ACT, Queensland, and New South Wales - people who have persisted with their ideas - often against the odds - to the point that their innovations are making a real difference to Australia: economically, environmentally, and/or socially.
