Outback Rabbis

Outback Rabbis

In Australia’s remote bush country, Jews can be hard to find—but they are there! So two young Chabad families pack up and climb into their custom made Mitzvah Tanks and travel thousands of miles from Melbourne to Australia’s most sparsely populated areas, correcting misconceptions about Judaism, finding lapsed Jews, and helping some Aussies discover previously unknown Jewish roots. Filled with surprising, emotional encounters with outback characters, and gorgeous images of lush rainforests and spectacular deserts, Outback Rabbis offers a warm, humorous look at two families fulfilling their slogan: “No Jew gets left behind.”
