On 4 June 2016, NSTE will hold another Parallel Shabbat (formerly known as Synaplex Shabbat), in which you'll be able to choose from a variety of opportunities for spiritual, educational, and communal enrichment, including:
You enjoyed the first edition of Hatikvah Post in August 2015 - and we are proud to announce that the April 2016 is now available for viewing online!
A hard copy publication will be heading your way shortly.
Join us again at Wisemans Ferry, either overnight or Sunday-only, the weekend of 20 - 21 August 2016.
Aimed at Mums of kids up to 13 years old, this is the perfect opportunity to "nurture yourself, for a change!"
Whether you choose to come along on the Saturday evening or just pop up on the Sunday morning - we'd love to see you there!
Shabbat Shalom everyone - I am going to speak about today’s parashah.
It’s a very difficult parashah to find inspiring because it is all about the sacrifices of animals and birds, about blood being dashed on the altar, and priests removing the fat that covers entrails and kidneys .. and so on! But first, before I talk about sacrifices, I want to start with the fact that in today’s parashah we celebrate starting a new book in the Torah -the Book of Leviticus, or Vayikra in Hebrew.
Read the beautiful eulogies for members recently passed here.
As you are probably aware, when we serve a meat meal we use disposable tableware and bakeware. This enables us to comply with the NSTE Kashrut Policy and also ensure that those members who keep kosher are able to join us for a communal meal.
This year, we want to purchase new tableware (china and cutlery) that we can use specifically for meat meals. The initial investment will be in the region of $5,000. We anticipate that this cost will be significantly offset against the savings incurred in purchasing disposables and be better for the environment. We are therefore asking members who are able to consider making a donation towards this purchase. You can donate via the link below or by calling the NSTE Office on 9419 7011.
Thank you for your support!
