Moments of Pride at BD
The feeding scheme in Alex is one of the things we can be proud of at BD. Thank you to Kehillah for running it year after year.
Services will be held each Shabbat at 18.00 and 10.00. At this time of year, your presence as part of the congregation helps ensure a Minyan.

Fire at the Beit Midrash Morasha Shul in Sea Point, CT
We stand in solidarity with our fellow Jews of the Morasha Shul congregation in CT. To
witness that a place of worship burnt down is heart breaking and we hope that the joint efforts of the Jewish community in South Africa will make it possible that the Shul will be restored and lost goods replaced soon, so that the Shul can continue to be a spiritual home for their congregants. Temple Israel CT is co-ordinating our help and we will update you on how you can possibly get involved.
