New Shluchim To Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia

Rabbi Mendel and Esty Khutoretsky established a Chabad center on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. They joined the team of Chabad of Rural and Regional Australia (RARA) which services the Jewish population in Australia’s remote communities. The Sunshine Coast encompasses beach resorts, surf spots and rural hinterland in Southern Queensland on Australia’s east coast, south of Brisbane.

In the past few years traveling rabbis under the auspices of Chabad of RARA have visited the 630 square mile area, hosting seders for Passover, or visiting individuals at home. Rabbi Levi Jaffe of Chabad of Brisbane would often visit to lead a Torah class. Now the Sunshine Coast has its own, permanent Chabad center. They serve Jewish families in the area and the 3.5 million tourists who visit the coast in an average year.
