Rabbi Yosef Kagan and Rabbi Srolik Winner were in Deniliquin last week to meet with the local Jewish community.
Both men are members of Chabad of RARA, a volunteer group that travels from all around the world to visit Jewish people living in rural and regional Australia.
Rabbi Kagan travelled from Miami and Rabbi Winner from New York to spend two months in Australia.
They are touring in their ‘‘Mitzvah mobile’’ around towns including Castlemaine, Shepparton, Albury and Wagga Wagga.
They estimate there are about 20 to 30 Jewish people in Deniliquin and surrounds.
‘‘We want to connect with every Jew, encourage them to come say hello and ask any questions they might have,’’ Rabbi Kagan said.
‘‘The Torah (Jewish written law) promotes life and modern times.
‘‘It shreds away a lot of darkness that we find in the world and sheds light.
‘‘The aim of this annual tour is to reconnect Jewish people with their culture and each other.
‘‘But our group is not only about Jewish people, but about helping the world.’’
