This week’s parasha happens to have the most psukim (176) of any one parasha in the Torah. It seems fitting to have such a prolific parasha read at the completion of this week, which has been so full of simcha for the Shira community. We wish Galit and Dean and their families a mazal tov on their engagement! We also wish Carm, Ittay, Nava and family a mazal tov on the birth of a baby boy. May you have as many smchachot as pesukim in this parasha!
Please join us tonight at 6pm for a melodic Kabbalat Shabbat. Tefilla on Shabbat morning is at 9.30am and we're delighted to have Yaakov Gorr giving our Dvar Torah this week. Kiddush will follow the Service.
In memory of Debbie Masel (Miller): Rabbi Hoffman, teacher of Debbie Masel (Miller) z'l, is coming to speak at Limmud Oz in June. Rabbi Hoffman will be conducting a Friday morning class in memory of Debbie, on the teachings of the Esh Kodesh. The Esh Kodesh, known as the Piacezna Rebbe, wrote the book 'Sacred Fire' in the Warsaw ghetto. The English version of that book was edited by Debbie in 2000.
When: June 8th from 10-11.30am.
Venue: ACJC, Monash University Caulfield campus, 8th floor, Building H, 900 Dandenong Road, Caulfield East. RSVP is required for this study session by 30th May, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance.
SEUDAH SHLISHIT: Shira will also be hosting a Seudah Shlishit - a '3rd Shabbat Meal' which was one of Debbie's favourite minhagim (customs) on Shabbat afternoon of June 9th at 3.30pm at the home of Esher “Chooch” Takac (7 Bramerton Rd, Caulfield). The Seudat Shlishit with Rabbi Hoffman will have learning of Chassidut , some Torah psychodrama and lots of singing. All Welcome.
