Refuah Shlema

Refuah Shlema

Over the past two years, we have all experienced trying times in one way or another.  Rabbi Gabi and the entire ARK Team were here to support you and we continue to do so.

Rabbi Gabi is a wonderful and compassionate listener with a genuine love for the individuals in his community and an educated understanding of mental health.  He holds a Masters in Social Work, giving him the skills and empathy to see people without judgement and to offer support and practical guidance. Rabbi Gabi has the keen ability to balance his light-hearted and outgoing personality with the difficult side of life approaching our many troubles with consideration and insight.

We encourage all our community members, whether you attend shule weekly, once a year or not at all to get in touch with us if you or someone you know needs our support. We offer support in a variety of ways and are adaptable and open to the needs of each individual.

During the past year we have assisted ARK community members and members of the broader community by providing meals to those who have taken ill, have lost a loved one, or just needed a delicious meal that they didn’t have to cook! Due to the many generous donations to our Pay It Forward initiative, we continue this vital aspect of our support offerings.

Our priority as your Community Centre, is to be there for you. Should you need assistance in any way, or know someone who does, we encourage you to get in touch with us.

For any Pastoral Care enquiries please contact the office on 8658 4044 or via Your enquiry will be received with compassion and any information you provide will be treated with the strictest confidence.
