Chanukah on Acland Street
Please join us for a GRAND MENORAH LIGHTING Sun, 28 Nov, 7pm Acland St. Plaza / Cnr. Acland & Barkly…
Sadly, there was a horrific attack in Israel this week and Eli Kay was murdered on his way to the Kotel. We pray for the wounded and for Eli's family. May the Almighty grant them strength and may his memory forever be a blessing.
I participated in the funeral virtually, it was heart wrenching. Thousands and thousands of people accompanying Eli on his final journey, singing soul stirring Niggunim through tears. We are one family. Am Yisrael - no matter what - Chai.
If you haven't already seen the powerful interview Eli's father gave yesterday, I encourage you to watch it here, youtu.be/5o3jpRApiS8.
We go from darkness to light... Chanukah begins this Sunday night and it's main theme is to spread light and hope in the face of darkness and despair.
As we light one candle, then two and three, through to eight, let's pause for a few moments and watch the little flames dance, allowing them to fill us with light, hope, courage, positivity and Jewish pride.
Ronny and I set up the Menorah on Acland Street this week (pictured above). It will stand tall and proud for the duration of Chanukah and we look forward to lighting it's first candle on Sunday night. We hope you can join us! Details below.
Wishing us all a Shabbat Shalom, Chanukah Sameach and week ahead filled with light! ... See MoreSee Less
