A royal party, and you’re invited!

Dear Friend,


Are you a royal enthusiast? Did you stay glued to William and Kate’s wedding, and earlier, Charles and Diana’s?

Then you’ll be thrilled to know you’re invited to this weekend’s royal wedding!

While I couldn’t get you seats in Windsor Palace (but neither could Teresa May or The Donald) , you have secured front row seats at the truest royal wedding- Shavuot!

That’s right, Shavuot, the date we received the Torah from HaShem 3330 years ago, is the anniversary of our marriage with G-d.

And is there anything more royal, regal & privileged than marrying the King of Kings?

So please join us over Shavuot! Fabulous All-night learning program headed by our visiting scholar Dr Simcha Leibovich; Hear the 10 Commandments on Sunday 10am, and a reminder for Yizkor on Monday 10:30am.

Our condolences to David, Emanuel & Deborah on the tragic passing of their brother, Joseph Braude. Josie was a shining light in our community and deeply loved. Sadly he was struck in a vehicular accident and passed away last Shabbas. We wish his family strength and comfort.

I was saddened to learn of the passing of Charles Kluk, this week.  Charles was a Durban import who radiated strength, caring and leadership. In Durban he occupied many important positions of communal leadership and upon his retirement here in the Mother City he carried no titles but easily conveyed the leader qualities that need no title: relevance, vision and a deep care for our shul and her people. Fittingly he was interred in Durban, where he had served as the head of the Chevra Kadisha and sourced the current burial grounds. May his memory serve for a blessing. We wish Graham, Steven, Malcolm & Neville Kluk comfort and strength.

THE SHUL’S ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Will be held on Monday 28th May 2018 at 8pm in our hall.

Please check the Shmooze for service times, candle lighting times and the program of events.

Shabbat shalom and Chag Sameach!
