Chabad ACT Treasurer Theo Menachemson, Rabbi Shmueli Feldman, Senator Zed Seselja, Chabad ACT Reverend Shmuel Kiel.

The visit of the serving Government assistant minister to the Chabad ACT Jewish community comes after a worrying rise of antisemitism and vandalism directed at Canberra’s Jewish community members and buildings in Giralang

Senator Seselja shared lunch with the children and staff of Canberra’s Gan Yisroel Childcare Centre, the only Jewish preschool and child care centre in Canberra. Following the preschool tour, the senator was showed through the many services that Chabad provides to the Canberra community including the food bank, clothes bank, Kosher shop and Synagogue.

In appreciation of the senator’s support for the community, he was presented with a framed picture of himself witnessing the completion of the inaugural Torah in Parliament House recently.

Senator Seselja said he was impressed  with “seeing such a truly vibrant multicultural centre and how grateful he was for the work that Chabad ACT , le d by Rabbi Shmueli Feldman, does for the community”.
