I was born in Cape Town, and have lived in Perth since 1986. I am involved in a wide range of Jewish community activities, including filming events, research, education and arranging exhibitions such as hosting the the Memories of Muizenberg Exhibition in three Australian cities. I give talks and presentations on my worldwide Jewish heritage travel and photography. I am a regular presenter at Limmud Oz. I like to educate about the importance of Jewish cultural heritage, family history and the shtetl. I write and manage 76 KehilaLinks (Jewish websites) for JewishGen, the world’s largest Jewish genealogical organisation. My KehilaLinks include sites in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Germany, Russia, China, South Africa and Australia. My blog is called “tangential travel and Jewish Life”. I also post on many social media sites. I arrange customised Litvak heritage tours for small family groups. My heritage story has been published on Virtual Shtetl, Museum of the History of Polish Jews and Avotaynu Online. My success story has been featured by Geni.com. Links to my many activities can be accessed via my website portal. My website: elirab.digital invites you into my world of digital storytelling.
Share while you can. It will make someone’s day!
