Hi All,

This Shabbas is going to be very exciting. Howard Greenstein AKA THE CANARY is going to be doing his Barmitzvah Haftorah Shabbas. Thats the first exciting thing. The second exciting thing is that Howard is going to be number 30!. He will be the 30thindividual person to do a Haftorah since we started the club. The 29 individual people have done 52 haftorahs. Howard will be (PG) 53! You may be wondering why I have called Howard the Canary its because the other day he asked me if we serve Canary food at the brocha so i guess he must be eluding to the Canary like performance he is going to put on.

The Canary The Canary Food

Howard will be doing the Haftorah upstairs since there is a barmitzvah downstairs. The Haftorah will coincide with Rabbi Tregers magic hour so I am sure if you are there it will be a very elevating service. We also take the opportunity to wish the Gellman and Kussel Families Mazeltov on the occasion of Jasons Barmitzvah. Jason is the Grandson of Jack and Jill Kussel.

Sandton Shul is definately the place to be this Shabbas!


I am sure there is going to be some special whiskey on tap. The Canary I mean Howard has told me he has been shopping. We may have something special from Saul Mervis but we will leave that as a surprise.


I have requests from Fran Blumenthal and Jonny Chertkow to include information regarding organisations that are assisting soldiers who are fighting to protect our beloved israel and Jewish people. Take a look at them and see what you can do!

Hi Trev

Don’t you want to send out this link to the guys

These guys send morale boosting meals to the combat troops in Israel.

For a few dollars, you can give a big boost to those who are putting it all on the line.

Have a good shabbos
