In this week's parsha, the Jews heard the Ten Commandments and discovered a whole new code of conduct. The prohibitions on 'theft' and on 'coveting' left them unclear as to whether they could still pinch their neighbour's hard rubbish - needed the Oral Law to clear that one up!
Welcome to 2014! We have some wonderful events lined up for this year, and great speakers as well.
Please note that there will be NO kabbalat shabbat on Friday - we look forward to welcoming you instead on Shabbat morning at 9.45am for shacharit.
We are delighted to honour Joseph Zeleznikow on the occasion of his barmitzvah! Mazal tov to your parents Lisa and John, and to your whole family as well. The Zeleznikow family invite the whole community to a delicious kiddush at the home of the Prawer family 410 Glen Eira Road, near the town hall.
Michelle Prawer will be taking part in The Weekend to End Women's Cancers benefiting the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. It is a 2-day, 60-kilometre walk. If you'd like to sponsor Michelle (tax deductible) click here. Kol hakavod Michelle and good luck!
