Rosh Hashana and Parshat Nitzavim

Shabbat: This week’s Shabbat services will be held at our regular location (222, Balaclava Rd, Caulfield). We will bring in Shabbat with a rousing Kabbalat Shabbat at 6pm. Shabbat morning will commence at 9:15am with our weekly Shiur given by Yaron Gottlieb and will be followed by Shacharit at 9:45am. Make sure you come to shule on Shabbat to meet our chazanim, Adam Ross and Yonina Fleischmann. This week, Yonina will be giving the Dvar Torah and there will be plenty of time at the Kiddush to chat with both Yonina and Adam.

Rosh Hashana: Rosh Hashana commences on Sunday night (16th September). We will once again be celebrating Rosh Hashanah at the Caulfield Park Bowls Club. We will be holding Ma’ariv services on both nights, as well as daytime services on Monday and Tuesday (17–18th September). We are privileged to be hearing a Dvar Torah given by the Hon. Michael Sifris on the first day of Rosh Hashana and from Yvonne Fein on the second day of Rosh Hashana.
