ABC Hobart features an article on Critchley Parker. It is a fascinating story on Parker’s quest to find a homeland for European Jews, starting in the late 1930s which led him to the wilderness of Southwest Tasmania. Parker eventually died on an expedition near Port Davey.
There’s also a video with an archived ABC feature on this, featuring Richard Flanagan.
The congregation will be hosting a webinar New Jerusalem, Down Under: The Search for a Jewish Homeland in Australia on Sunday 31 January.
