This year, North Shore Temple Emanuel (NSTE) is celebrating 55 years of community service. Opening its doors back in 1960, NSTE has been through many changes and achievements over the past five decades, including, but not limited to, the jubilee renovations, thriving Hebrew School, and maintaining a strong community focus. We are also proud to have many of our founding members still among us, who regularly volunteer, attend services and participate in various activities and programs.
Who doesn't love a hot, comforting meal alongside great company on a cold winter's night?
If you're a fan of our Kitchen Krew Shabbat Dinners or yet to come along, our Winter Warmer Shabbat Dinner is not-to-be-missed! Great for the whole family.
Mark Ginsburg and his wife, Judy Campbell, have safely returned from their travels abroad this week. Welcome home!

Recently, JSA held a very informative, successful 9th annual ‘The Aboriginal Experience’ (part of the Guringai Festival).
Cass Goodwin, Manager of Outreach and Research for RECOGNISE and Patrick Batchelor, Manager of the community engagement program for RECOGNISE spoke about the need to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our Constitution.

As part of our 55th anniversary celebrations, Rick Recht, the top-touring musician in Jewish music, will lead a musical Shabbat Service at North Shore Temple Emanuel at 6:30pm on Friday 21 August. The event will be followed by a Kitchen Krew catered Shabbat Dinner, where Rick will join us and lead the singing of zemirot.
While the service is free and open to the public, places are strictly limited for the Shabbat Dinner.
Back by popular demand after our incredibly beautiful day last year, our 2nd Annual Mums' Retreat will be taking place on 15 and 16 August 2015.
Designed specially for mums of children under age 13, you can come just for the day (Sunday), or head over a day early and enjoy a sublime Havdalah and program the night before.
If you are interested in the overnight option, please book by 1 May 2015 to secure your spot. After that, lodging on site is only "subject to availability".
