Parshat Vayeshev

Parshat Vayeshev is about returning to our roots and dreaming lofty dreams for our future. Join us this week to dream about reaching new heights.

We would love if you want to join us this Friday night for a musical Kabbalat Shabbat, led by Ketoret at 6.30pm(mincha at 6.15pm).  This will be followed by a light kiddush of sushi provided by Melanie Landau.

Shacharit commences at 9.45am, and this week we are thrilled to celebrate the aufruf of Ilana Jaffe and Julian Hoffman. Mazeltov to Ilana, Julian and to their son Abe, parents Linda and Russell Jaffe, and Lazar and Sheila Hoffman.  Wishing Ilana & Julian much joy and happiness, nachas and blessings for this important milestone in their journey of life together.

The Dvar Torah will be given by Melanie Landau and the Kiddush is kindly sponsored by Russell and Linda Jaffe, and all the community are invited to help celebrate.

After the Kiddush, you are invited to an informal picnic lunch for Shira and the wider community with Melanie on Shabbat 13 December, at approximately 1.30pm, at Caulfield Park near the pond and play equipment opposite the Bowling Club.  BYO rug, kosher food and picnic set (plate, cup, cutlery).  Shira members and the wider community are warmly welcome. (In the unlikely event of inclement weather, the picnic will be cancelled).

THIS SHABBAT AFTERNOON! The last in our successful series of "Modern Jewish Thinkers." At 6.30pm: The Lonely Prophet: Glimpses into the World of Rav Kook, presented by our Education Director, Raphael Dascalu. Address: 6/310 Alma Road, Caulfield North.  

Save the date - Celebrate Chanukkah @ Shira:  Join us on 19 December at 6.30pm for music, candle lighting, latkes and sufganiyot. Raphael Dsacalu will illuminate us about Ḥănukkāh while we enjoy our Chanukkah treats after davening.
