Brother, can you spare an hour?

Want to make a difference but don’t know how?

Well, if you’re a guy you can help the Chevra Kadisha by making a minyan at quiet funerals.

Lately, a number of funerals were held where Kaddish couldn’t be said as there was no Minyan, causing pain to the mourners and to the neshoma of the deceased. The Chevra Kadisha have started a whatsapp group of men committed to ensuring that every member of our community who passes away is buried with at least a Minyan present giving and honour and dignity to all.

If you can be a part of this simple Mitzvah then do one of the following: If you’re on a smartphone, click here to join the group. Or, simply reply to this email with your name and cell number and I will join you on to the group.

Still want to make a difference? Get ready for a fabulous initiative to be launched in early 2019…Just this morning, our dream team held a strategy session…stay tuned!

A warm welcome to all our visitors! Friends, we are privileged to host so many holiday goers. Our Shuls fill up, the stores get busier and Kosher restaurants are overflowing. Oh, and the traffic sets in! Yes, it’s a small price to pay for the Mitzvah of hachnasat orchim and for the privilege of living in the worlds most popular holiday destination. Bruchim habaim!

Sara and I extend a warm welcome to our dear friends Rabbi Ari and Naomi Shishler and their family! Rabbi Shishler is a popular speaker, lecturer, radio host and regular columnist. We look forward to hosting him in our Shul over Shabbas and hopefully picking up a tidbit or two of wisdom and Torah.

Condolences to Cecile, Sharon & Charles Levy on the loss of their mother and Bennie Edelstein on the loss of his sister, Winnifred Levy.

Condolences to Michael and Lionel Berman on the sudden and tragic loss of their brother, Jonathan Berman.

Condolences to Arthur Joffe on the sudden passing of his brother, Arnold Joffe.

We wish the families that they be comforted amongst the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.

School holidays have set in and with it many in our community are traveling to their respective holiday destinations. We wish each one a safe trip and a wonderful break. See you next year!

Shabbat shalom and happy reading!
