It came as no surprise to me that Rabbi Loebenstein (or “Moish” as he is known to Jews across the windswept plains of this sunburned country) rose to the challenge and answered the call of his people in their hour of need. For him, RARA is not a job; it is a mission, a passion, a pursuit where the means and the ends are one.

Its true that Rabbi Moshe does incredible work, but we should not forget to show gratitude and recognition to the person who is the driving force behind Chabad of RARA – Rosie L.

Rosie, you’re fair dinkum!

There’s no seminary in Queensland. Unless the waters reach Melbourne, 850 miles away, one can assume that the seminary is safe, B”H.
