Weekly Message July 7th 2016

Last week I reported about an opportunity for women to take part in saying Kaddish at times of mourning and Yahrzeit. I also encourage you to let me know if I can hep you in rehearsing the Kaddish so that you are comfortable reciting it during Davening at Shul.

I also wish to remind everyone that I have uploaded a recording of the Kaddish to the Shul website if you would like to practise on your own.

We have some exciting social events coming up soon and I encourage you to share it with your friends and invite them to come along!

We have a top class Whiskey night on the 21st of July conducted by “The World of Whiskey,” the best in the field!

On the 6th of August we will run our first “Faces of our Community” Shabbat lunch. This will be a series of lunches with different speakers from our community, each one with a fascinating life story and personal achievements to share.

In this weeks Torah portion we read about the damage of Spiritual anarchy and lack of boundaries.

This failed strategy of spirituality without boundaries was promoted by none other than Moses’ first cousin. He was a clever guy but with a misguided ideology.

Using clever arguments for a misguided purpose is something that most of us fall for at some stage, which is why it is so crucial to have a mentor to discuss the important things in our life with.

We will discuss more about this on Saturday at Shul.

Dina and I are excited for the special celebration this Shabbat and we look forward to sharing it with you!

Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Chaim and Dina Koncelpolski
