Parshat Re'eh

So many great things are happening at Shira! We've started our membership drive for this year - thanks to everyone who has already renewed! If you would like to join us for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur - please click here.

Kabbalat Shabbat is at 6pm, and on Shabbat morning there's our regular shiur at 9.15am with shacharit to follow. This week's drasha is being given by Chooch Takac in honour of the recent yahrzeit of Debbie Masel, z'l. It is entitled "Parsahat Re'eh: The blessing and the curse".  A delicious kiddush is being sponsored by Mandi Katz and Ashley Browne - thank you!

Seudah Shlishit: On Shabbat afternoon, 4.30pm at the Moishe House, we are having a seudah shlishit - a 'third meal' of shabbat. Lionel and Rita Lubitz have kindly sponsored our meal, so no need to bring anything - just yourselves! Moishe House has a great  backyard for kids if you want to bring them along. Check us out on Facebook where you can find out the address via Brett Nathan (host). 

Next Shabbat - August 10th: Kiddush and Guest Speaker - Rabbi David Levin-Kruss from Shira Hadasha, Jerusalem, who is a teacher at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, is giving a talk after the kiddush on the topic:

"God's Disco, Kept Women and the New York Telephone Directory: The Political and Religious Thoughts of Yeshayahu Leibowitz."

We are requesting that people book for this event on our website with a $10 contribution towards the kiddush costs. Bookings can be made here.

Shabbat Shalom!
