There are those who think you can buy yourself a stairway to heaven with gold (even if your name is 'Lead' Zepplin), but Jacob simply had a good shloof on some rocks to find his stairway. This is a great Parsha for the dreamers among us!
Please join us on Friday night for Kabbalat Shabbat at 6.30pm with some great singing and niggunim. On Shabbat day, beginning at 9.30am, we have the great pleasure of welcoming Gabriel Takac to the Bimah for his Barmitzvah. We wish a warm Mazal Tov to Gabriel, to his parents Robert and Chooch, and siblings Alon and Yona. The festivities will continue after the Shul Service with a Kiddush at the Takac home, 7 Bramerton Road, Caulfield, to which the entire community is invited.
The Shira AGM will be held next week on Wednesday night, 7th December at the Shul, 222 Balaclava Road at 8pm. All are welcome to participate, however please note that only financial members are entitled to vote.
