There is not much cheery news from this week's parsha. Yaakov is faced with Esav on a warpath towards him, and then dislocates his hip fighting an angel. Rough day. At least when I fight with my angels, they just throw their dinner under the table and yell a bit :)
Please join us at 6.30pm for Kabbalat Shabbat with a few new tunes from Nava Tehilla in Jerusalem. Shabbat morning starts at 9.15am with a shiur and shacharit to follow at 9.45am. The drasha will be given by Gabbi Sar Shalom, with a kiddush to follow.
Mitzvah Day is on Sunday. Shira are helping to organise and paint a warehouse for the charity St Kilda Mums. Could all volunteers arrive promptly at 10am at 5 Vale St, St Kilda, wearing clothes appropriate for paintingand also appropriate for the weather as the warehouse does not have heating/cooling. We would like to send out a huge thank you to all the volunteers who are giving their morning for this really wonderful cause. It is great to do tzedaka with your body and not just your pocket! Anyone who wants to turn up on the day, even without having RSVP'd is more than welcome.
