Our Rabbinic Advisor

As at our founding we were unaware of any Sydney-based Orthodox rabbis who support Orthodox partnership minyanim and who would thus be willing to provide ongoing halachic guidance, we respect their wishes not to be involved. We are honoured to be guided by our rabbinic advisor, who is a distinguished Rav from overseas.
