Jewish Rural and Regional Australia

If you know anyone Jewish who lives in rural Australia, please let them know.

They travel to such places as
Wagga Wagga, Griffiths, Jerilderie, Orange,
North Star, Toowoomba just to name a few.

One their main tasks is to have a database
of as many Jewish people living in the RARA areas as possible.

The 1996 census revealed there were approximately 3,500 people in RARA.
Their research reveals the real number is probably double.
For example the 1996 census shows no Jews living in Griffiths.
Their research has found approx. 25 to date.
