Imagine that Parshat Vayikra was in fact written by Matt Preston ofMasterChef. He gives great detail about different types of animal 'meal offerings' that are accompanied by olive oil, frankincense and fine flour. During 'plating up', he seems unimpressed by the Jews tendency to overcook to the point of burning - but apparently that was considered fine dining, Temple style.
Join us tonight at 6.30pm for Kabbalat Shabbat to start unwinding for the weekend in song. After Kabbalat Shabbat we welcome Robert Berman from Jerusalem who is giving some guest lectures in Melbourne. Robert is the founder and director of the Halachic Organ Donor Society.
Stimulate your neurons on Shabbat morning at 9.15am with our regular shiur, followed by Shacharit at 9.45am. This week's Dvar Torah will be given by Romy Browne on the anniversary of her Bat Mitzvah. Mazal Tov!
