Shabbat Korach @ Bet David

Dear congregants and friends,

We hope you are all well and that you keep warm.

It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of our member, Laura Zahava Ormsby, last night. Our heartfelt condolences to her husband John, children Dean and Ricky Ormsby, daughter-in-law Abigail and granddaughter Blake. The funeral will be held at the West Park Jewish Cemetery this Friday, 19 June at 10h00. Details for Prayers will be advised at the funeral. We will mark Laura’s passing also in our services this Shabbat.

We invite you to join us for another weekend full of services and communal get-togethers. On Friday we welcome Shabbat together at 18h00, followed by our Shabbat morning service on Saturday at 10h00. On Tuesday, 23 June, we mark the beginning of the new Hebrew months Tammuz with a morning service at 10h00. All three services will be streamed via YouTube and Facebook Live.

On Saturday evening @ 18h30 and Sunday @ 15h00, you are all most welcome to join our communal get-together via Zoom. Details about how you can join the services, Havdalah and the High Tea are in the AdKan ( and below.

In honour of the international Pride month, Bet David is holding a Pride Shabbat Service next week Friday at 18h00. We have won a high-profile guest speaker, Rabbi Mike Moskowitz, who will deliver the sermon during the service. Please diarise, share with friends and family and join us for this very special service next week, too. A flyer with the details and Rabbi Moskowitz’ biography is attached and also available here:

Wishing you all a peaceful Shabbat
