Sukkot was a special time for the RARA communities in rural and provincial towns across Australia.

Events have been held in Geelong, Albury,  Newcastle, Townsville, Magnetic Island, South Johnstone, Cairns and the Queensland Tablelands including Sushi and Scotch in Sukka, Shakshuka in the Sukka, the roving sukkas and the traditional Sukka under the stars meals. The events saw many new people join the RARA communities.
Under the auspices of Shaul and Beverly Spigler,  Jews all across Rural and Regional Australia participated in record-breaking Jewish programs during the month of Tishrei. Thousands of Rural Jews across the states of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria were visited by one of the Chabad of RARA teams operating during the month.

Preparations already began during the month of Elul with honey cakes delivered all across Queensland and NSW by the Chabad Of RARA teams of Sholom Berkowitz and Mendel Richler and Rabbi Ari and Mushkie Rubin of North Queensland. Many of the Jews were touched by the care of the Rabbis and tens of new faces were added to the nearest Shules because of the visits.

Thanks to RARA, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services in Cairns and Newcastle.
Chabad of RARA is founded by Shaul and Beverly Spigler, its regional directors are Rabbi Yossi and Malki Rodal with Rabbi Ari and Mushkie Rubin running the North Queensland branch.
