Parshat Chukat

This week we read another narrative filled parasha. I addition to deaths of Aharon and Miriam, we read about the famous incident where Moshe hits the rock. What will be Moshe’s punishment? Will Moshe be allowed to enter the land of Israel? All this and more will be answered this week in shule!

Please join us at 6pm for a melodic Kabalat Shabbat. At 9:15am on Shabbat we will enjoy a shiur on the parasha which will be run by Yaron Gottlieb before commencing Shacharit at 9:45am.  This week’s Dvar Torah will be given by Brett Nathan, who will be making his Dvar Torah debut.

We wish a Mazal Tov to Klara Herz and the Herz and Charak families on the occasion of Klara’s Bat Mitzvah anniversary. We will be privileged to hear Klara leyn on Shabbat.

Our thoughts are with Shaike Snir whose father passed away in Israel earlier this week. We wish Shaike and the Snir family a long life.

Danny Ben Moshe, who is Associate Professor & Principal Research Fellow at the Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation Faculty of Arts & Education Deakin University (and a Shira member!) has produced a documentary called Rewriting History. Classic Cinemas is screening the documentary. You can find out more details here.

Shabbat Shalom
