Monday 3 September
Busy day for the energetic
Sora Jacobs who
hosted a wonderful ladies Lunch and Learn in
today for almost 40 ladies. All enjoyed the
wonderful cuisine of Chefs Alistair and Peter.
Menu was a taste of Rosh hashona with Zimmes,
saltbeef and latke.
Plus cake fruit and hot drinks.
During the talk Sora urged the audience to
undertake additional Mitzvos and good deeds in
honour of Rosh Hashona and the New Year ahead.
Part of her message below One small act which
observance of Kashrut, Shabbat, the festivals
even that small act does not go a miss and that
is what Rosh Hashanah is therefore.
So as I come to the end of my talk I would like
each of us to think of two Mitzvois we will take
on to improve ourselves in the coming year.
One mitzvah between us and our friends, maybe to
forgive their wrong doing, offer a lonely person
friendship, help someone in need.
And also a mitzvah between us and Hashem such as
lighting our Shabbos and yomtov on time not
later, be more careful about
the kashrus of the food we buy and eat, or maybe
stop using our mobile phone on Shabbos and yom
Thursday 6 September
To enable the Community to fulfil the Mitzvah of wearing
KOSHER Tefillin and placing Kosher
Mezuzahs on their doors Lubavitch brought to Glasgow Sofer Rabbi Yitzchak Schreibhant, courtesy of Sholom Jacobs.
It was a
service offered and will be repeated later in the year.
Anyone wishing to have their Tefillin or Mezuzahs checked please be in touch 638 6116.
Writing of the Tefillin and Mezuzahs often fades which then invalidates the items.
We all need Hashem's promise of long life and good health
for oneself and the family so book Your Tefillin and Mezuzah
as soon as possible.
This blessing comes about thru fixing Kosher Mezuzahs on all doors and wearing
daily at least while saying the first two lines of the Shema.

and plenty of whisky.Although the band was unable to fly in from London due to Easy Jet cancelling all flights.

much music, singing and dancing,
a magician and a photo booth. There was
fun for everyone. The meal was organised by Sora

social success with nobody leaving for home
early. People arrived at 5pm
and left around 9.30pm Through the financial
sponsorship of the event by Sholom and Pessy
the Glasgow community enjoyed a top notch event
at a price everyone could afford.

Communal Seder held at Macabi on first night of
A few places are still available.
