Dear <<First Name>>,

Shabbat This Week

We hope you can join us again for the beautiful melodies of Kabbalat Shabbat and again on Saturday for Shacharit.

Kabbalat Shabbat - Friday 6.30 pm (l'chaim at 6.15 pm) at Shira
Shabbat Shacharit - Saturday 9.45 am

Kabbalat Shabbat next week (18 November) will be held at the home of Mark Baker, 44 Aroona Road, Caulfield at 6.15 pm in celebration of the aufruf the following morning of Gabe Baker and Gabi Metz.

On Saturday, we will be celebrating the Bat Mitzvah of Yoni Ringelblum who will be called to the Torah for the first time. We wish Yoni, her parents Ruth Boltman and Doodie Ringelblum, her brother Hillel, sister Aydl and all the family a very warm mazal tov.

In honour of the family's first language - Yiddish - we also wish them a very warm mazl-tov on the bas-mitzveh and look forward to sharing in their simkhe. The Dvar Torah will be given by Doodie in honour of the occasion and following the service the community is invited to a kiddush hosted by Ruth and Doodie.

Mazal Tov!

A warm mazal tov to  Carla and Ben Jaffe, and Linda and Russell Jaffe on the birth of a precious son and grandson. Mazal tov also to his big brother, and to all the family. May he be a source of much naches and joy.


We extend heartfelt condolences to Rita Lubitz, Lionel, Lara, Jesse, Emily and Adam on the death of their sister, sister in law and aunt, Margrit Zurburchen z"l. May her memory be a blessing.


Goodbye to Jarred Sibel who with Klara Herz has led the program for primary school children each Shabbat this year. Jarred is travelling to Oman where he will be studying next year. We wish him all the best for his travels. On behalf of the children and their families, we thank him for his hard work and for all the fun sessions with our Shira kids.


Shira's AGM will be held on Sunday 11 December at 28A Briggs Street Caulfield at 7.30pm. A formal notice will be sent on the weekend but please diarise the date.

The Yapa Lali Project
Earlier this year, Aria Klein travelled to India and volunteered at a number of schools. Aria has decided to collect puzzles, intellectual board/card games and exercise books with activities for schools in Auroville, Tamil Nadu. Aria would really appreciate the help of Shira members to donate what they can. Aria is collecting the items until Mitzvah Day on 27 November and has set up a drop off zone at Shira to facilitate this.
