Australian Judo Jack Halber has passed away


One of the stalwarts of refereeing in Australian Judo, Jack Halber, passed away on the 30th of September.  Jack was one week short of his 98th birthday!

We all have our Jack Halber stories and I can remember being refereed by Jack at the JFA nationals as a competitor and in later years refereeing with him.

Jack will be sadly missed by the Judo community and on behalf of the JFA I wish to pass on our condolences to Jack's family.

Jack's funeral will be at 2.00pm on Wednesday the 7th of October at the South Chapel of the Eastern Suburbs Crematorium, Matraville, Sydney.
