What’s the state of our shul?

Dear Friend,


Sinai Indaba is the gift that keeps giving! It’s already established that SI will give us the Jewish World’s top personalities. SI gives us food for thought and nourishment for our souls. And this year it’s giving us back some of its best speakers for an Encore


But now Sinai Indaba is giving us a serious REBATE! Thanks to a generous sponsor, the Chief Rabbi has announced that 50% of each ticket bought will go to the Shul to which the delegate belongs. The monies will then be used to bring out further speakers by the respective shuls. What a deal, thank you Chief Rabbi!


There’s no red tape or bureaucracy. Simply send me an email that you (and your friends and family) have booked or are going to Sinai Indaba and we will submit the list for our rebate. Visit www.sinai-indaba.co.za to book today!


Can’t afford it? Email me and I’ll happily arrange tickets for those in genuine distress.

Mazel tov to Eden Sachs who is celebrating her Bat Mitzvah this Shabbat! Mazel to her parents, Alon and Michelle Sachs and to grandparents, Gerald and Linda Jacobson and Matatyahu and Daliah Sachs. I had the pleasure of knowing Eden’s great grandfather, Rabbi Rokman of blessed memory and I know the Yiddishkeit and Jewish Pride that courses through the veins of this family. Much nachas!


Rebbetzin Sara will be hosting the ladies Tehillim Circle this Shabbat at 7pm in the Shul hall.


Condolences to Shul Trustee, Les and Patsy Marcow on the passing of their brother in law, Reuben Rosenbloom, in the USA. Reuben and Essie were long standing members of our Shul and when it came time for Les to celebrate his special birthday, all they wanted to do was give something to our Shul in Les’ honour. Our condolences to his wife Essie and to their children Brian, Lawrence and Patricia. May Hashem give you strength in this time.
