What a wonderful week to turn 13! Mazal Tov to Max Denishensky, and his parents Andrew and Lisa, and sister Anna, who are delighted for Max's Barmitzvah this Shabbat. It is a juicy Parsha, filled with spies and giants and big grapes. There is the unfortunate punishment to wander the desert for 40 years after the bad report on the Holy land, but this did provide for many more adventures along the way. Max, we wish you many adventures as well as favourable report cards in your coming years!
Please join us on Fri night for Kabbalat Shabbat at 6pm for some delightful harmonies, and then at 9.15am on Shabbat for our weekly shiur, followed by Shacharit at 9.45am. The drashot will be given both by our Barmitzvah young man Max, and by family friend Tal Spinrad, the Director of Beit Lama Loh. A truly delicious Kiddush is being sponsored by Max's family in honour of this occasion.
