SAUPJ Conference—Shabbat (12 May @ 8h45)

This Shabbat, Bet David has the honour to co-host the SAUPJ Biennial Conference. As part of the conference, there are two wonderful shiurim.  All congregants are more than welcome to attend these talks on Saturday morning.

  • Rabbi Hillel Avidan, Rabbi Emeritus of Bet David, is presenting the topic: “Ecology and Torah – Shnat HaShmittah and Shnat HaYovel”
  • Student Rabbi David Benjamin is leading a discussion on: You shall proclaim freedom throughout the Land!” Jewish attitudes towards slavery and subjugation

Shavuot (19 and 20 May)

This year’s Shavuot celebration will be very special. Not only are we going to have our first “The-winner-takes-it-all-cheesecake-competition”, but also a Netzer Sleepover, an outstanding talk by Danny Adebe about his journey from Ethopia to Israel, and the double adult Bat Mitzvah celebration of Theresa Sobel and Hester Hollander. (See additional flyers, attached hereto and available in the Shul)

Please note that we will re-dedicate our Tree of Life on Shavuot morning. New leaves will be placed on the Tree of Life before the morning service at 9:45, and names will be read out during the Yizkor service at around 12:00.
