Parshat Bamidbar & Shavuot

What a huge weekend ahead at Shira - with Shabbat, our Shavuot dinner and our night of learning with a wonderful lineup of speakers, followed by 2 days of Yom Tov and cheesecake delights.

SHABBAT: Please join us tonight at 6pm to start the festivities, and continue the fun at 9.30am on Shabbat with a Dvar Torah by Deb Neumann.

SHAVUOT: Shul starts at 6pm with Maariv on Erev Shavuot (Saturday night). Bookings for the Saturday Night Dinner have now closed but all are welcome to join us for the Tikkun Leil - the Night of Learning, which starts promptly at 7.45pm.

Shul on Shavuot begins both mornings at 9.30am. On Day 1 we are delighted to honour Seraphya Berrin on the occasion of the anniversary of his Barmitzvah, and he will be giving the Dvar Torah. On Day 2, Monday, we are hearing some wise words from Joel Lazar, and please note that Yizkor is said on this day.
