History Repeats Itself at Chabad of Rara

RARA, Australia [CHI] — Chabad of Rural and Regional Australia has once again sent out another group of Roving Rabbis to visit Jews living in areas around Australia who are not residing in main Jewish communities. This trip, like all the ones before it, is focusing on bringing Yiddishkeit to these Jews. Mezuzas will be hung, Tefillin will be laid, Bar Mitzvas with men of all ages will be celebrated, Shabbatons, tens of house visits, signing people up to all of RARA’s programs and trying to locate new Jews to add to the 2000+ person database.

The first Chabad of RARA trip around Australia took place over thirty years ago. This month, history repeats itself! Over three decades later, the son of Saul Spigler, the first RARA traveler and Director of RARA has set out on a similar journey. Rabbis Yossi Spigler and Sholom Rapaport of Atlantic City, New Jersey will be travelling along the East Coast of Australia for the next five weeks. Stay tuned for stories from the RARA trail…
