Parshat Ki Tisa

In this week's Parsha, we hear the narrative of Moses' ascent onto Mt Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments, and descent to confront the golden calf.     

Come to shule on Shabbat morning to hear the Torah reading, and to listen to Ittay Flescher's fascinating Dvar Torah on "Ki Tisa - Creating Gods and Golden Calves."

Kabbalat Shabbat service commences 6.30pm on Friday night.  Shabbat morning service commences with a shiur at9.15am, followed by Shacharit at 9.45am.  A light Kiddush will follow the Service.

Upcoming events!  The Annual General Meeting of the members of Shira Hadasha will be held on 26 February at 7.30pm at Shira, 222 Balaclava Road.

On 28 February at 6.30pm, we are excited to have a delicious Shabbat dinner with our very own scintillating panel of "Girls" (the TV show) experts discussing: "Kol Isha: Is Lena Dunham's Girls the Voice of our Generation?"  The cost is $25 full or $20 concession/student.  Please book early here.

We are also thrilled to shortly commence our Bnei Mitzvah program for youth who are turning bar/bat mitzvah in 2014/2015.  Yael Prawer will lead a year long engaging and thought provoking program for youth, commencing in March.  Please reply to this email for all further enquiries about this program.

Finally, a number of members in our community are participating in, and fundraising for, the 60km Peter MacCallum Walk to End Women's Cancers. Annette Charak in her recent drasha spoke from the heart about her struggle with cancer and the importance of community for support. She will be walking on the weekend of 1 March as will many other members of our shul including Michelle Prawer, Diane Lankri, Lorraine Abraham, Naomi Rassaby and Ann Wollner.  We wish all these women and their teams all the  very best. If you would like to donate to any of these participants, you can do so directly here.

Shabbat Shalom
