Join us this Shabbat & Simchah with
Rabbi Danny Newman and Chazzan Roland Brandman in celebration with Benji Lurie and his family on the occasion of his Barmitzvah.
This week EBMC had a very successful meeting organising all preparations for the upcoming Simchah and Yom Tov. We wanted to remind you that our Yom Tov services are open to all the community and there are no ticket requirements. We would appreciate your RSVP for security as soon as possible and we kindly ask you to visit with your own Machzorim (Lev Shalom, ArtScroll). This Shabbat our service will commence at 9:30 and will be followed by a delicious Kiddush hosted by the family in honour of the Barmitzvah Boy. We welcome the whole community to join us.
Other news is that our discussions with Edware Masorti regarding our merger are progressing and we hope to bring you an update soon.
This week’s Torah Portion, Ki Tavo, Hebrew for "when you enter”. Ki Tavo begins with two essential things that had to be dealt with once the Children of Israel had resettled peacefully on the Land after many years of exile in Egypt. First, was the importance of the mitzvot, (commandments), of the tithes which must be given to the Levites, the Priests, as well as to poor people as an act of gratitude towards G-d’s provision and care returning them to their homeland safely. Second, is that the importance of this offering is in recognising that G-d is the one who blesses and gives the us life, not only of the produce of the land but in all aspects of living.
We wish Jay Dor and her family long life on the passing of her father. The Shiva will be at 34 Brook Road, Borehamwood, WD6 5HG. We respectfully request no visitation between 2 and 5 or before 11. Prayers will take place on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September at 8pm.
Have a wonderful week and Shabbat Shalom
The EBMC Team
