Danny Radojcin

Danny is a fixture at Caulfield Shule. Having been with us for over 45 years, he has seen many members born, having their bar or bat mitzvah and now sees their children having their bar or bat mitzvah. He has seen many a wedding, birthday or lechaim over the years.

Danny is well known and liked by all the members and could certainly tell a tale or two about the Shule. He is certainly popular with the children and will always have a kosher lolly on hand for those who behave, wishing them a Gut Shabbos or Gut Yom Tov.

Danny is married and has adult children
