Rabbi Mendel helps Nitzan lay the Tefillin and say the Shema at the majestic Wallaman Falls, just out of Townsville in Far North Queensland.

Purim Party in Coffs Harbour

 

Wow! What a party we had up in Coffs Harbour on Purim afternoon. Older faces, younger faces, and everything in between, bears, unicorns, firemen and queens, - it was a lovely crowd!

New connections were made, the megilah was read, Haman's name was drowned out in plenty of noise, and of course there was lots to eat.

L'chaim to a fantastic regional Purim party!

See you in Coffs Harbour tomorrow.
