Bochurim on Shlichus Featured in NZ Newspaper
Rabbis Menachem Spielman and Sruly Myhill, both formerly Shluchim to Singapore, were recently featured in the Otago Daily Times, of New Zealand, where they are continuing their Shlichus.
They have visited several towns and cities, including Dunedin, which once boasted a large Jewish community, where they met the president of the current progressive congregation and visited the shul, which houses centuries-old Torahs and other artifacts. This includes a fascinating inscribed and carved Shofar, which they blew (video below) [note: they were aware of the highly questionable halachic status of the shofar, and used our own one directly afterward].
They are currently making their way across the South Island of New Zealand from Queenstown to Nelson, where they will be leading the Rosh Hashana services.
