Jewish tribute for Armenian religious leader"I can do no better than borrow from my colleague, Jeremy Jones AM, who as president of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry worked closely with Archbishop Baliozian: “He was a fine person, with great intelligence, a quick wit and a willingness to take risks to further ideals of peace, justice and an ethical society,” he said. “Those of us fortunate enough to have been his guests, particularly at his colourful, dignified and warm services, knew him as a leader, a caring person and an outstanding contributor to Australian society. His Jewish friends miss him dearly.”
