Two phone calls from Toronto

Friday, 8 January, 2010 - 1:41 pm

Dear Friends,

On Wednesday this week, I received a phone call from a Jew in Toronto whose mother recently past away. He is going to be in Victoria this Tuesday. He really tries to not miss any opportunity to say Kaddish, so he was wondering if we have a minyan for Mincha and Ma'ariv (afternoon and evening services), to which I replied that we don't have "at this time," but he is welcome to pray in our shul. And so we planned to meet in shul on Tuesday at 3:30 PM.

Two hours later, the phone rings again. A woman from Toronto is on the phone. Her daughter, who lives in Nanaimo, had a baby boy, and they requested if they can have the brit in our shul. "Could it be at 3:30PM?" she asked, "and one last thing - will you be able to get a Minyan?"... 


So here I'm inviting you to participate this Tuesday, January 12, 3:30 PM, in Mincha service followed by a brit and Ma'ariv...and we need a Minyan....!

I’ve noticed that flux in pelopes live as of late, some has to do with the state of the economy, much really, but others it’s just where they are in their lives. Mine too. I think your right to be cautious, but at the same time the conditions are ripe for growth and change. It does to be the case when things are the most dire we tend to rise like the phoenix. Keep the faith in yourself and being the seeker that you are, you’ll land. Insightful and poignant post. Brenda
