Tonight we are commemorating Yom Hashoah at Shira, and marking 70 years since the Warsaw ghetto uprising. We invite you and your families to join us for a special Kabbalat Shabbat at6.30pm infused with Chassidic Niggunim from the war era, and a talk by Mark Baker before Ma'ariv.
On Shabbat morning we start with a shiur at 9.15am and then are delighted to be celebrating a double simcha - the Barmitzvah anniversary of Steve Ehrenreich and a Simchat Bat for baby Isabella, a daughter born to Eitan and Rachel Sifris. Shul starts at 9.45am. Mazal Tov to Michael and Adiva Sifris on their second grand daughter, who will be receiving her Hebrew name in shul. The Kiddush will be co sponsored by the Ehrenreich and Sifris families and all are welcome. The Drasha will be given by Brett Nathan.
Ilana and Steve Ehrenreich would also like to share an email of thanks from their family in South Africa for the support they received from our community after a recent family tragedy, which you can find on the Shira noticeboard in the foyer.
Yom Ha'atzmaut: Next Shabbat we will be celebrating Yom Ha'atzmaut at Shira with an Israeli themed kiddush and a short program to follow the shul service. We ask people to bring either a poem or a quote attributed to an Israeli, or an 'only in Israel' story that they'd like to share. Spread the word!
We wish a Bon Voyage to newlyweds Daniel Harris and Aliza Pinkus who are off to travel the world and have adventures. Their smiling faces and beautiful leyning will be missed.
Condolence: We wish a long life to Aaron Zelman on the passing of his grandmother. It was great to hear that the whole family had a seder together only last week. Wishing you and your family many simchas.
