On Tuesday 27th May, the annual Tefillah Service was held by Mizrachi Organisation, the Council of Orthodox Synagogues of Victoria, the Rabbinical Council of Victoria and Bnei Akiva to mark the joyful day of Yom Yerushalayim.
The beautiful Tefillah service was very well attended and the celebratory vibe was felt through the melodious Tefillot and enthusiastic dancing.
We were honoured to have Six-Day War veteran soldier, Mr Shmuel Gurewicz, address us at the service. Mr Gurewicz was both fascinating and entertaining as he relayed his experiences as the only religious solider in his unit, and the way he was understood and respected when it came to issues of Shabbat and Kashrut.
Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the service. We look forward to celebrating this auspicious day with the community for many years to come.
