Once again, those lighting the Shabbat candles should come late to shul. Earliest candle lighting is at 6:32.
Huge Mazel Tov to all our matriculants! Kudos to our congregants, some who came away with a pile of distinctions. We are truly proud of you, Kol hakavod! Perhaps the greatest distinction goes to Herzlia for a perfect record in the Educational Support programme. Shkayach for ensuring that no student is left behind.
And while on the ‘subject’, Mazel Tov educational doyen Geoff & Paula Cohen on the engagement of their son, David to Hayley Lipworth. What a beautiful, joyous end to the year. Much nachas!!
Mazal Tov to Kenneth Lipschitz on his 90th Birthday, and to Dr. Hymie Ehrlich on his 90th Birthday! Both birthday boys are Shul regulars and mainstays of our community. May HaShem bless you with lange gezunte yohren.
Mazel Tov to Sarah Gadd on the forthcoming marriage of her grandson, Ryan Rabinowitz to Tal Segerman. Much nachas!
