The Ladies Guild

The Ladies Guild caters for a wide spectrum of services to our community.
Our Shabbos brochas have always been part of the Ladies Guild focus.
There is a kiddush every week in our adjoining foyer where everyone is welcome.

Most weeks we celebrate a simcha of a birth,Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Aufruffs or a special birthday. In addition we organise the annual Shavout dinner and Simcha Torah lunch.

New ladies are always more than welcome to join and they can contact Bev Cohen who does the Brocha lists.

The Ladies Guild performs acts of Gemilut Chesed for all the needy and sick in our community.This includes visiting the sick weekly on Erev Shabbos, by our dedicated team of ladies organised by Debbie Gien.
A Shabbos gift of candles, appeltiser, challah and a prayer for healing booklet is handed out.

Every Shabbos Mevorchim a cholent lunch is hosted by the Rabbis and is an opportunity for the community to come together in a “hemish” and informal atmosphere.

It has also become the place to celebrate common simchas together.

“PERSONAL ENDORSEMENT:

Dear Ladies, I received Pam Schapkaitz’s letter yesterday and my first reaction was – Pam is such a lady! She has worked tirelessly for the Ladies Guild for many years with very little support. Anyone else would said, ‘Ive done my bit’, and moved on. As a member of the Ladies Guild who does a catering duty every 6 to 8 weeks, I would like to add the following. I am a Saturday morning shul-goer.

Sandton Shul has a reputation for its brochas and I enjoy the brocha every week. I feel good that I contribute in my small way. I also enjoy the catering experience. There is a friendly cameraderie between our group and I always get a catering tip or two. I feel a sense of pride when I see the brocha that we have produced. Please consider joining the Ladies Guild. I would suggest that you either look at the lists and join a group where you will feel comfortable or even form your own group.

Sincerely
Beryl Lutrin
