Let’s Go Local

Nb. Mincha starts tonight (only) at 6:35.


Dear Friend,


Last week, our Friday Night service was truly Visitor’s Season- even the Chazan and Rabbi were visitors!


It was an honour to host Chief Rabbi Goldstein last Friday Night & of course the Chief Rabbi delivered the sermon. Cantor Ivor Joffe was down with a stomach bug so cantor Oshy Tugentaft– who often joins us in December- passionately led the service.


Well, this week the Rabbi & Chazan are all local, but we’re still thrilled to welcome all our visitors, regulars & semi-regulars!


Our condolences to Committee member Neville Scher on the loss of his wife and to Grant, Barry, Samantha & Ilana on the loss of their mother, Lily Scher. Neville is an integral part of our daily services and it was sad tracking Lily’s deteriorating health over the past few months. We hope that the family find comfort in the life and legacy of this gracious woman.


As it is Shabbat mevarchim (when we bless the upcoming month) Rebbetzin Sara Wineberg will host the monthly LADIES TEHILLIM CIRCLE this Saturday @ 7pm in the Shul Hall.


My weekly Thursdays LUNCH AND LEARN will resume 10 Jan 2019.


Mazel Tov to Adam Lapiner on his 30th Birthday! Much success, we look forward to celebrating with you in Shul.


Mazel Tov to Arthur & Lauren Gillis on the birth of their grandson. Uge nachas!


Mazel Tov to Jonathan & Juliette Gordon on the engagement of their son, Saul to Jodi Cohen, and to Jodi’s grandmother Isabel Frankal! Much nachas and enjoy this special time.


Earliest candle lighting is at 6:31pm, so Mincha will start tonight only at 6:35pm.


All morning services return to normal next week. As Monday is Rosh Chodesh Shvat, Shachrit will begin at 6:45.


Shabbat shalom & happy reading!
