A First For Melbourne!

(Click on photo for a larger view)

I was very pleasantly surprised to see this flyer in shul on Friday night. For the first time that I know of Kollel Menachem, Beis Hatalmud and Kollel Mitzion will be holding a joint function.

A morning of shiurim titled "The Challenge of Shabbat in Modern Life" will be held on Sunday 7 Ellul (11 September) at Mizrachi Shul starting at 10:00am. Men and women are invited and all the shiurim will be in English. This is a really positive way to start Ellul and I hope that they get a good attendance.

The three kollelim may have different philosophies but all are dedicated to Torah learning. I am looking forward to attending these shiurim.

It is not surprising to me that this function has been sponsored by Valiant Enterprises. Reb Laibl New, Yitzchok New and Avremi Raskin are strong supporters of Melbourne organisations and this sort of combined communual function fits right in with their view of how our community should run. Kol hakavod and kein yirbu.
