Dear Friends,

Greetings from the Moorabbin Hebrew Congregation - the friendly Shul.

There are multiple ways to support your community. Some of the most popular are donating funds, attending Shul, volunteering, attending shiurim and social events and paying membership. Thank G‑d, in every single one of these parameters, our Congregation is growing.

Our community is growing.

We are greeting more and more synagogue regulars at our services and they, in turn, shlep their own families and friends along for the ride. Our monthly Kid Friendly Friday nights and Family Shabbat mornings are both proving especially popular.

Rabbi Elisha and Leah Greenbaum continue to pour their hearts and souls into our community and it is a distinct pleasure to watch their family grow.

Rabbi Mendel Haller, the adult education director of our sister organisation, L’Chaim Chabad - Kingston, is proving a major draw card to Moorabbin members. Ably supported by his wife, Chaya Mushka, he offers a host of opportunities to engage intellectually with Judaism at all ages and stages, and has attracted a group of devotees, who never miss a series, as well as an ever expanding network of students, who pick and choose from the smorgasboard of classes on offer.

Our Board of Management has been renewed. A number of dedicated volunteers have been elected to sustain and expand the vision of longer-serving office holders and an air of optimism reigns around the table. There is also much call for communal volunteers and fund raisers and we are delighted with the response.

Membership is becoming ever more popular. Year on year, more local families formally join our congregation. We are proud to have succeeded in maintaining that ‘at-home’, small Synagogue feeling, even as we’ve grown and we are thrilled that our community has won a well-deserved reputation for welcoming every single person into our fold and making them all feel equally at home. 

These High Holy days promise to be a wonderful experience in the friendly Shule. We are thrilled to welcome back our head Chazzan, Rabbi Yudi Green, for the 6th year. We will also be providing an enjoyable youth service for the young ones of our community and we look forward to welcoming you and your family on the Days of Awe and throughout the year.

Membership of our Congregation also includes allocation of seating for the High Holy Days – one seat for a single membership, and two seats for a couple/family membership, with additional seats for children under 18 years of age available for a small fee. Please let us know if you have any specific seating requests.

 

Seats will be at a premium this year, and to allow us to allocate pews to all those who wish to join our congregation, we request you make your seating preferences and requests known to us as soon as possible.

As always, no one will be turned away from our Shul for lack of ability to pay. Please contact Gerri Fox on 0412369767 or office@jewishmelbourne.com.au to negotiate a payment plan or to request a reduced rate.

Should you have any questions, Jeff Alford, our President, can be reached on 9290 4110 or email: office@jewishmelbourne.com.au.

We look forward to seeing you over the coming months, and often over the course of the year.

Yours Sincerely,

Jeff Alford and the Board of MHC –  the friendly Shul
