Beit Emanuel Matters, 4/5 February 2022

Happening this Shabbat

Our Shabbat Evening Service takes place in Shul and on Zoom at 18h00 (6 PM) on Friday evening. Please join us at either “venue”, and if you choose to be there in person, please join us for the Brocha in the Janks Hall thereafter.

The Shabbat Morning Service will be on the Veranda leading onto the Garden and on Zoom at 09h30. The Brocha will be in the Courtyard.

Brocha sponsorships and donations

This Friday evening’s Brocha was kindly sponsored by Nate Herscovitz and Charlotte Livingstone. A reminder to please “feed” the Perspex donation boxes on each table or the wooden donation box to one side of the venue. We would like to maintain this popular custom at Beit Emanuel in 2022 and beyond, but the only way we can continue to do so is through sponsorships and donations.

Sound and video streaming problems

We apologise for the sound and video streaming problems we encountered last week. Our technical team and musicians held a dress rehearsal earlier this week, and we’ll be doing a sound check at 5 PM on Friday evenings to iron out any bugs.
