Beit Emanuel Matters: 12/13 October 2018

When Avi’s away, the Choir will play. Choirmaster Avi Kanar is away this week, so the format of this evening’s service will be slightly different. The venue is the Janks Hall, and the Choir members will be distributed amongst the congregation. To accommodate this, the Brocha will be in the Courtyard/Boardroom/Slome Foyer area. The JKids Shabbat service takes place in the Boardroom, so a quick set change will be needed once the kids have left.

JTalk next week in the Slome

Speaking of venue changes, the JTalk on the 20th (next week) will be in the Slome Auditorium, to accommodate what we hope will be a larger-than-usual attendance. See the attached flyer for details.

The Auerbach Lecture

Just in case you’ve forgotten to pencil in this year’s Auerbach Lecture, the date you’re looking for is Tuesday, 23 October, 19h00 for 19h30.

Proudly Progressive Shabbat Project

The Proudly Progressive Shabbat Project is the weekend of 26/27 October. Our programme is more or less the same as usual, although there will be a couple of extra goodies (details to be announced) and one or two special flourishes as a hat tip to the P/P Shabbat Project.

Electronic Communications

Since the untimely demise of the SA Post Office (at least for all practical purposes), we’ve struggled to get material out to those who don’t have some means of electronic communication. This has come up as an issue again with our automated Yahrzeit Notices. So, if you don’t already have an email address, mobile (Cellular) number or fax number on file with us, please provide one. Those are the only options available to us for sending out these Yahrzeit Notices to you.

Useful links

And while we’re talking of things electronic, here’s a couple of links you might find useful:

  • Request to attend a service at Beit Emanuel: http://bit.ly/2pMH7Uo. This is to simplify the process for non-members wishing to attend a service here. The link is also available on our website.
  • We’re experimenting with trying to make our JTalk sessions available as podcasts. This is where you’ll be able to find them: https://anchor.fm/beitemanuel.
  • Copies of our weekly Bulletin will in future be made available online. You’ll be able to find them here: Beit Emanuel Bulletin – Google Drive: http://bit.ly/2yzjByb.
