Rosh Hashana



18 (Chai) Elul, 5777 / September 21, 2016


With Rosh Hashanah approaching next week, it is our great pleasure to send to you the enclosed Brisbane Jewish Calendar for the Jewish year 5777 (2016-2017).

We are also pleased to enclose our High Holidays guide, which contains relevant information and insights for the upcoming Jewish festivals.

Enclosed too is a fridge magnet containing Shabbat and Jewish Festival candle lighting times and blessings.

Chabad stands at the forefront, in its vigorous efforts to preserve Yiddishkeit (Judaism) and promote Jewish continuity within our community, and throughout the world. On the threshold of this New Year, 5777, we renew our pledge to increase our efforts towards the task at hand.

Our work is made possible through the generous support of the community and we appeal to you at this time to please help support us so that we may continue to expand our many important communal services. Your generous contribution will be whole-heartedly acknowledged and appreciated via the self-addressed appeal envelope which is enclosed with the High Holiday guide.

Dvorah and I wish that you may be inscribed and sealed for a good sweet year, כתיבה וחתימה טובה, לשנה טובה ומתוקה, a year filled with abundant material and spiritual blessings, and that we may all experience the fulfilment of the ultimate blessing of everlasting peace for all Israel, and the entire world, with Moshiach Now!


Rabbi Levi Jaffe
