ברוך אתה ה ...
“Blessed are you Hashem, our G-d, King of the universe who sets free those that are captive”
Morning Blessings
 
As we prepare to receive the Torah with one heart, our heart overflows with joy thanks to Hashem for the miracle He has performed for us.
 
When we light our Erev Shavuot candles on Tuesday may we joyfully express our thanks, while beseeching Hashem for the release of the rest of the hostages, the safety of our soldiers, and our people, and for peace and healing.
 
We salute our courageous soldiers and mourn the loss of Commander Arnon Zamora HYD.
 
Shavuot – the festival celebrating the everlasting gift of the Torah, a gift which unites us as a unique people. Every man, woman and child attends Shule and listens with heart and soul to the Ten Commandments – for this is what gives you truth and purpose and unites you with every other Jew. May we all join together as one to receive the Torah with joy and internalise its values for a lasting impact on our lives - bringing us into an era of peace and harmony.

Regaining Lost Opportunities
Pesach Sheni, the second Passover, teaches us that if you really want, it is possible to make up for lost opportunities, make amends for past mistakes or start afresh. In the desert, a year after the Exodus, there was a group of Jews who missed out on bringing the Paschal sacrifice and begged for a second chance - and their wish was granted. Today Pesach Sheni is symbolic, yet the message and the power imbued within the day remains. So eat a piece of Matzah and enjoy the changes you feel empowered to make in your life.

Every Friday evening we have a new opportunity to enhance our candle lighting experience in so many ways. We can reduce the stress and the rush, light candles several minutes early calmly while surrounded by family, pray mindfully and of course remember to give tzedakah prior to lighting.

It is almost upon us, the Festival of Matzot, the time of our freedom. The Zohar tells us that Matzah is the bread of faith and the bread of healing. We internalise the faith of our ancestors with the Matzah. They were healed from the trauma of their exile.  
Healing brings you to a place of faith.  
Faith brings you to a place of healing.  
Ingest the Matzah mindfully to ingest a faith where there are no doubts, just a simple trust and a deep joy which leads to healing and harmony of body and soul.
May we carry within us a deep faith and a true healing, providing strength and freedom for the hostages, for our soldiers, and for our nation to live in safety and peace.

With our Friday night candles we welcome Shabbat Hagadol, ‘The Great Shabbat’, so called because of the many miracles that occurred on that day and leading up to the exodus from Egypt.   
It is a day to acknowledge the great miracles then and now. 
It is with love in our hearts that we acknowledge the open and revealed miracles which took place in Israel this past week. Pesach-type miracles happening in our day.
May we experience the miracle of all miracles, the final redemption now!
