South Head Synagogue
Rebbetzin Henya and I bless you with a year of inner peace and harmony, and the true joy and deep happiness that comes from: meaningful achievement in your personal lives and in your contribution to the lives of others; freedom from conflict and worry over health, family or finance; and the confidence that Hashem is with you, loves you and guides you.
With best wishes for a Shabbat Shalom and Ketiva v'Chatima Tova l'Shana Tova U'Metuka to you and all your family on behalf of all of us at South Head.
Rabbi Benzion Milecki OAM
P.S. Based on your feedback, the Chazan and I are working very hard to ensure that the Rosh HaShanah service concludes no later than 1.15pm
In order to achieve this, we need to blow the Shofar no later than 10.15am.
Please click the image below for all service and candlelighting times over the High Holy Day period. Please note, these times are for the Main Shule!

Thank You All!
My mother, sister and I, together with all our family, have been absolutely overwhelmed by the huge level of support that we have received from you, our community, over this past week and a half. Your calls, texts and emails have helped soften the pain of our father's unexpected passing. (Although our father was 92, he was regaining muscle strength after a serious fall and the week before his passing began walking again. Until the end he was mentally astute and amazingly positive notwithstanding his total blindness.)
Although it has been difficult to respond individually to all your warm messages, please be assured that we have read them all. The fact that so many of you have taken the time to write has meant a lot to us.
This week is Shabbat Nachamu. In a beautiful letter to Arik Sharon after he suffered the loss of a child, the Rebbe wrote to him explaining why we say to mourners, "May G-D comfort you among all those who mourn for Zion and Jerusalem." Read More
