Kangarusski is the Russian Speaking Jewish Community department of the Zionist Federation of Australia (ZFA) that works to engage the Russian Speaking members of our community with both Jewish and Israel content. It has been further developed by a dedicated volunteer base with the desire to celebrate their Jewish heritage and revive their Australian Jewish social epicentre

Every year Kangarusski families get together to celebrate their mothers and this year they were treated to a cooking master class, challah baking and a group of enthusiastic volunteers put on a wonderful Israeli folk dance show for the mothers led by youth leader Veda Kuzcko. The evening culminated in a beautiful dinner.

Anna Maylis, Kangarusski Sydney coordinator said: – “The last two weeks have been marked with important dates in the history of the Jewish people, such as; Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron, Yom Ha’atzmaut and the Great Victory over Germany Day. All these events are strongly connected to the history of Russian speaking Jews. The celebration of Mother’s Day is a beautiful conclusion to this period of remembrance. A mother’s love is about care and kindness, it is about guidance through life, it is about hope for a safe future and for peace. Ose Shalom Bimromav.”
