Parshat Vayakhel-Pekudei

This parsha tells us how Moshe's appeal for donations to the Mishkan went viral on youtube and facebook, raising enormous funds for the building. After some controversy surrounding the transparency of the accounts, Moshe reluctantly asked for donations to stop - but fortunately he'd raised enough to get 3 layers of roof covering and plenty of goat hair. Success!

Please join us rain, hail or shine at 6.30pm for Kabbalat Shabbat and then at 9.30am for Shacharit on Shabbat. We are in need of more early birds to get our Minyan started on time  - there is cake and coffee awaiting you if you're punctual! The Dvar Torah will be given by Steven Prawer, and a Kiddush will follow the Service. See you there!

Pesach Shiur Sunday Night: Rabbi Meir Rabi is holding a Pre Pesach Shiur at the Prawer home this Sunday evening at 8:30pm on the topic of Matzah and Haggada. The address is 410 Glen Eira Rd, close to the Town Hall. Everyone is welcome, please spread the word.

Mazal Tov to the Kupshik and Klinger families who were blessed with a new granddaughter this week. New parents Cindy and Michael are delighted - we wish you all much naches.

Mazal Tov to Nadav and Nicola on their baby Rudy (Aryeh Mordechai) Baker, and to grandparents Caras and Baker families - much naches to you too! 

Shabbat Shalom
