Friday evening Kiddushim will therefore be held in the Slome Foyer/Courtyard for the same period. Shabbat morning services will still be held in the Garden (weather permitting), with the Saturday morning Kiddushim being held in Slome Foyer/Courtyard. If you’re in Joburg over this period, please help to ensure that we always have a Minyan.
We will be lighting candles for Chanukah on Friday, 30 December. Please bring your kids, your Chanukiot and 7 candles to the Shabbat evening service on the 30th. Speaking of Chanukah, the ladies from the Union of Jewish Women (UJW)’s empowerment projects have come up with some interesting wire/bead Chanukiot, which are on sale in our Judaica cabinet in the Shul Foyer. If you’re looking for something unusual, for a gift or for your own home, please have a look.
Our choir will be taking a well-deserved break over the Festive Season, and will be back to enhance our Friday evening worship as from 13 January.
