South Head Synagogue
As you are aware our Shavuot Learning and Discussion evening was a huge success and boasted a record attendance of 300. Judging by the responses and feedback, it seems that everyone left far more knowledgeable, and better equipped, than when they came.
This success would not have been possible without the time, energy and commitment of the speakers. Each brought a unique perspective of substance to the event, and we are truly appreciative to each of them. For my introductory remarks to the Panel Discussion - Read More

Israel: The Big Turnaround
As published in the Rabbi's Report of the South Head Synagogue Annual Report for the Year Ended 2012
Israel’s Sixty-Fifth Year
I am writing these lines during Sefirat HaOmer - a period that commemorates both a) the crushing of the Bar Kochba revolt and the dispersion of the Jewish People from their Land in the second century of the common era, and b) the return of the Jewish People to their Land in the twentieth century.

Kids Turn out in Droves
What a successful Shavuot program we had on Wednesday morning!
250 children plus parents joined us to hear the 10 commandments, watch an exciting balloon show and enjoy an ice cream party.
Thanks to Rabbi's Levi Milecki and Yaakov Glassner for reading the 10 commandments, to Garron Kavonic for making our ice cream balloon, to Rebbetzin Henya Milecki and our madrichim for scooping out the ice cream and of course to all the children and parents who attended the event! And a great big Yasher Koach to Youth Director Brookie Milecki for her professionalism and inspiring leadership in bringing this event to such a successul conclusion.
Take a Dip!

JLI: Great Minds Don't Always Think Alike
Is there any value to the life of a child who dies before she has accomplished anything?
Is there meaning to pain and suffering or is it just a case of bad luck?
The Ancient Greeks said, "Eat, Drink and be Merry for tomorrow we die". Do we Jews subscribe to this view - after all, we do quite a bit of eating and drinking ourselves?
Is Judaism pro-Science or does it view science as a necessary evil?
What does Judaism offer a person well-versed in the sciences, literature and philosophy?
These very questions were the subject of debates between Jewish Sages and Greek Philosophers two thousand years ago and this week's Lesson looked at their relevance to our lives today.
From 10.00 - 11.30 we sing and dance, bake challah, learn arts and crafts and do so much more.
For children aged 18 months to 31/2 years.
Runs 9 consecutive weeks. Register for the whole term or just pay session by session.
