Jewish Sydney
Les D, Dec 2019
Darryll was our tour guide for this unique experience. She too us to the Sydney Jewish Museum and both before and after, filled us in on the history of Australia and how the Jewish community got started and has thrived to this very day. She also took us to Bondi Beach and surrounding neighborhoods to one of the beautiful synagogues and toured us around. Finally, she took us to Our Big Kitchen after telling us the history of this amazing inter-generational, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic organization. We now feel we have a greater understanding of how our own culture thrives in Australia! Darryll was amazing!
