Parshat Pinchas

This week, we read about Tzelafchad's daughters who petition Moses to inherit their father's portion of land. This inclusion and recognition of women has been a source of many feminist interpretations of the Torah, and we invite you to join us at shule to continue this tradition at Shira.

Come join us in song to bring in Kabbalat Shabbat at 6pm. Shacharit commences 9.45am sharp. The Dvar Torah will be given by Mandi Katz, and a light Kiddush will follow. All are warmly welcome.

Accomodation? Does anyone have (or know of) any available accomodation for our international chazzanim over the Chagim this year?  If so, please reply to Ilana at this address.

Public event:  For the first time in Melbourne, Frederick Weisinger (child Holocaust survivor and a member of the Jewish LGBTIQ community) will speak publicly at the Jewish Holocaust Centre, 15 Selwyn Street, Elsternwick, on 27 July from 1.30-3.30.  More details can be found here.

Wishing all a Shabbat Shalom, and during these difficult times, we all hope and pray for peace.
