Thursday morning started off with a baby-naming! Chava Eden was recently born in the U.K. but parents, Romy and Brett Rosehill, wanted to celebrate the occasion with Romy’s parents, Barbara and Leon Mandel. So they travelled all the way to Marias Road in Sea Point to name their child at yesterday’s Torah reading. Mazel tov and much nachas!

It was awesome to bump into Levi Urinovsky, Shane Uria and so many of our youth at Herzlia’s Grade 11 encounter in Stellenbosch. These kids are pumped and proudly Jewish and it was a pleasure engaging them in debate and discussion.
Condolences to Gavin Cohen on the passing of his Mother, Fima Cohen. Gav’s mother left a special legacy, which I hope will provide him and the family some comfort in this difficult time.
On Shabbos, Dr. David Saperson informed me that his granddaughter in Canada had announced her engagement- and being the scatterbrain that I am (on Shabbos!) I promptly forgot to announce it from the pulpit. So to David and the whole mishpocho- mazel tov and lots of nachas from your wonderful tribe.
Condolences to Miranda Bloch on the passing of her mother, Ruth Bloch. (funeral is today at 2pm)
