Chief Rabbi Mirvis Feels At Home In Perth!

Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, has visited CHABAD WA on his first tour of Australia and NZ.

Rabbi Mirvis CHABAD

He was welcomed into a shul community made up of over more than 95% ex pat South Africans and felt immediately at home.

Zvi Friedl played the Simchat Torah niggun on his violin, followed by Julian Todres who duvened Mincha. Young Dylan Kotkis sang Oseh Shalom and Adon Olam and Simon Lawrence recited Tehillim.

Rabbi White introduced Chief Rabbi Mirvis, who responded with a his address.

See the video.  It will be particularly appreciated by all South Africans and ex pats.

A tea was held afterwards where the Chief Rabbi was able to meet members of the community, including three other “old boys” of Herzlia High School in Cape Town
