Beit Emanuel Matters, 3/4 December 2021

Happening this Shabbat It’s been something of a roller-coaster ride this week, in the wake of a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, portending the predicted fourth wave, and with a new SARS-COV-2 variant thrown in to spice things up even more.

Beit Emanuel Matters, 9 October 2021

Micah’s Battie Micah Shapiro became Bat Mitzvah last Saturday and it was a memorable event, with Micah bringing credit to herself, her family, her teachers and the Shul.
