What ever happened to the reason, cause, and fire behind Melbourne! The Rebbe sent Shluchim to Y.G. starting in 1967, and since there have been Shluchim.

Y.G. were the best years of my life, and it is an embarrassment that there are no pictures of it!
(even if it was Tishrei and all the Bochurim were by the Rebbe b/c the Shluchim took them, there can still be photos!)

Wow Very Nice

Just read up about how the Lubavitch (Jewish!!)community in Melbourne (Australia at all) began with the Shluchim the Freideke Rebbe sent there years ago to join the Fieglen family including Althouse, Kluwgant, Wilschanski, Gurevitch, Serebryanski….Groner…(you may add more, these just came to mind)and many more family’s that are still there until today, it is a thriving community and may they have much Succes in thier Moisdois.

The very first picture is of Ohel Chana. the pictures of the building that looks like 770 is Chabad House of Caulfield. the Yeshivah Ohelei Yosef Yitschok is the Chabad boys school, are they all not Lubavitch mosdos? open your eyes!!

What a wonderful community!
Guest
What a wonderful community!

#8: I so agree! I was flabbergasted by their glaring omission!

This brought back such wonderful memories of OC 5763…what a year it turned out to be!! What a special experience it was!

To compare cities is closed minded and just plain ignorant. Every place in the world has it maylos and chesronos and it is up to us to make the place where we live better.

But saying that you would be hard pressed to find a more livable city than Melbourne both as a place to live and Jewishly – but I am not biased….

Mishpacha NOT

Just compare to the coverage of Lubavitch mosdos (NONE!) in last weeks Mispacha magazine!

apprently there was some article in mishpacha magazine about melbourne with photos that did not include chabad mosdos.
if you read #8 correctly, you will notice that s/he is pointing out how nice the photos on col which include chabad mosdos as opposed to the mishpacha magazine

Melbourne is the best and most livable place in the world! If you want pics of Sydney, go to the travel agent and get a brochure, so u can see pics of Bondi Beach…you wont find places like this Ruchnius-wise, u just cant compare the two.

Sydney muuuuuuch better!!! i lived there. i live in melbourne but i (personally) think that sydney is better gashmius but the frum schools in sydney only give a hebrew education while melbourne is both.
