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. The young volunteers, often recently ordained rabbis, are equally proficient in ancient Jewish law and Twitter; they are open, understanding and wise beyond their years.

Daily Thought
The sound of the shofar is not the cry of a human voice. It is the howl of an animal’s horn. It is a cry so primal, so raw, that the mind ceases to ponder, the heart suspends its throb. With the fury of a beast pent up in its cage, the naked essence of the soul bursts out, howling, ripping through heaven’s curtains, awakening the primal essence of all being. The raw core of your soul below touches the Primal Essence above, and now their reunion may begin.
