Which Israeli general gets your vote?

Dear Friend,


Want a sneak peek at the dream team?


Tomorrow we host Major General Yaakov Amidror. Sponsored by Vida e caffé, our post Shachrit daven e caffe promises to be something special. This top Israeli security personality will address “Is Peace Possible? The inside scoop of Israel’s attempt at peace with the Palestinians”. 7-8:45am, including Shachrit. Emailinfo@maraisroadshul.com to book your place at breakfast today. This eloquent, erudite and courageous Israeli general has my vote!


On Friday night, the Sinai Indaba brainchild and force of nature, Chief Rabbi Dr. Goldstein, will address us in Shul!


And on Saturday, Mystic and bestselling Author, Rabbi Simon Jacobson, will deliver the Shiur: Are you surviving or thriving? 5 Jewish secrets to add confidence and passion to your life. 12pm. Be there!


In addition, I’m excited to hear rock star Alex Clare– not only to sing, but to share his unique life Journey; it’s not every day you meet a platinum album artist who spends half his day studying Talmud! Nili Couzins was a huge hit last year and Rabbi David Aron was at Sinai 1 and there wasn’t an empty seat at his talks!


So don’t miss Sinai Encore this Sunday at the CT Convention Centre. Book today www.sinai-indaba.co.za


And guess who else gets in a talk on Sunday? Yours truly! Yes, I’ll be on SABC 2 with the Derech Eretz Program speaking on Creating Opportunities. If you don’t get up that early, PVR it!


In Jerusalem of old, it was common for marriages to take place on a Friday morning. But for CT it might be a first…mazel tov to Keith and Lisa Brouze on the marriage tomorrow of their daughter Kim Brouze to Neil Eliason. Lots of nachas!


Birthday blessings & chocolates tomorrow night! All children celebrating their birthday during February are welcome to join us. email hillary@maraisroadshul.com or call 021 4397543


Condolences to Lorelle Curitz on the loss of her father, Gideon Shimoni in Johannesburg. May Hashem grant you and the family comfort.


Sunday is the first Yahrzeit of Shul stalwart, Jeff Fish. His wife, Adele, and daughters, Lara and Yael, are sponsoring the Seudah and all are welcome to honour this much loved figure in Marais Road Shul who was taken form us way too soon.


Oh! You don’t have to ride the Argus to get nachas from it- Rebbetzin Sara, Lindy Sachs, Gita Osrin, Dr. Ronit Netter and more are riding to raise funds for the CT Mikveh renovation! Click here to get in on the action.


Shabbat Shalom and happy reading!
