We will mark the celebrations honouring our Kallot and Chatan Torah – Ruth, Janis and Greg Jordan – at the evening service – followed by a bracha.

The Service starts at 18.00; congregants are welcome to bring along beverages of their choice to the evening celebrations.

Ethan Lewis’ Bar Mitzvah — Saturday 14 October 2017 at 10.00am

“My name is Ethan Lewis and I am currently in Grade 7 at Craiglands Primary. I also attend the KJD Taekwondo Martial Arts Academy and I am two grading’s away from my black belt. I love spending time with my family and taking my dogs Izzy & Zoë to the park. For my Mitzvah project, I am putting together “Care Boxes” for the children at Samaritan House. I am collecting the following items for them: Kids Toothpaste, Kids Toothbrush, Facecloth, Soap, Shampoo, Lip Ice and a Water Bottle for school. A donation box has been placed at the back of the Shul for members that wish to contribute.”

The Bar Mitzvah Service is followed by a bracha in Ethan’s honour, sponsored by his parents Adrian and Beatrice Lewis

Chag Sameach Shabbat Shalom
