HEFFRON MP Ron Hoenig has paid tribute to late AJN CEO Joshua Levi in a speech to the NSW Parliament late last month.

“Our community has lost an outstanding journalist in his passing. Josh was well known to many members of this House, and his contribution to journalism in just 36 short years of life was exceptional,” Hoenig said.

Stating Levi received a number of awards for excellence in journalism, particularly for his coverage of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Hoenig described Levi as “a person of immense integrity and a passionate Zionist”.

“Josh’s contribution to the community by informing us and fearlessly holding all parts of our community to account made us better; far better than we were,” he added.

“I wish long life to Josh’s family, particularly his wife, Lia, and newborn daughter, Lara. May his memory be a blessing to all who knew him.”

We miss you, Josh.
