About
Chabad of Rural and Regional Australia is committed to providing for the spiritual, emotional and material needs of Jewish people living away from Jewish centres. Chabad of RARA seeks to educate and demonstrate real Judaism; an unbroken chain of tradition going back three millenia. Bringing Judasim into the 21st century by the fusion of technology and religion, social media and Bible study, Sabbath dinner and science improves the rich traditions and modern behaviour alike.
