This Shabbas – 2 for the price of 1!

Dear Friend,

Why do one simcha when you can have two? On Monday, not only did we wish Jared Marcow a mazel tov for his first Aliyah and upcoming Barmy, we wished his sister, Mikayla, Mazels as well for HER Bat Mitzvah this Shabbas.

Two for the price of one- now that’s Black Friday! 

Huge Mazels to Anton Lee-Ellen Marcow on their double simcha. When you consider the sweetness of the “Mitzvah couplet”, then you can add a further mazel tov! Jared was so confident in Monday’s service, with Tefillin, prayers etc. that all his friends were calling him RABBI Marcow! What nachas for their grandparents, Shul Trustee Les Patsy Marcow and West Coast Chabad stalwarts Clive Rita Smith. Mazel tov!

Happy Happy birthday to the happiest, most energetic, nonagenarian- Ettie Buch on her 98th Birthday! The joy we all feel when Ettie struts into the Brocho is only matched by the pleasure on Ettie’s face. We are truly privileged to be her second home and family and we wish her many more happy, healthy years. Mazel tov!

This coming Friday, join the penultimate daven e caffe of the year! Friday 30 November, Davening @7am, followed by breakfast and vort with Rabbi Dovid Wineberg. RSVP hillary@maraisroadshul.com
