Lost Hat

I lost my hat at Caulfield Beth Hamedrash (Katanga). I think that someone may have accidentally taken my hat and left a similar one. See photo of the one that was left. The label says Milano Italy, size S. Does anyone recognise it? (Mine is bigger, has a wider brim, and a wider, non-leather band.) 
Thanks, Mark

ZICHRON YAAKOV

PARSHAH IN A NUTSHELL
Leviticus 21:1–24:23
The name of the Parshah, "Emor," means "speak" and it is found in Leviticus 21:1.

The Torah section of Emor ("Speak") begins with the special laws pertaining to the kohanim ("priests"), the kohen gadol ("high priest"), and the Temple service: A kohen may not become ritually impure through contact with a dead body, save on the occasion of the death of a close relative. A kohen may not marry a divorcee, or a woman with a promiscuous past; a kohen gadol can marry only a virgin. A kohen with a physical deformity cannot serve in the Holy Temple, nor can a deformed animal be brought as an offering.

A newborn calf, lamb or kid must be left with its mother for seven days before being eligible for an offering; one may not slaughter an animal and its offspring on the same day.

The second part of Emor lists the annual Callings of Holiness—the festivals of the Jewish calendar: the weekly Shabbat; the bringing of the Passover offering on 14 Nissan; the seven-day Passover festival beginning on 15 Nissan; the bringing of the Omer offering from the first barley harvest on the second day of Passover, and the commencement, on that day, of the 49-day Counting of the Omer, culminating in the festival of Shavuot on the fiftieth day; a "remembrance of shofar blowing" on 1 Tishrei; a solemn fast day on 10 Tishrei; the Sukkot festival—during which we are to dwell in huts for seven days and take the "Four Kinds"—beginning on 15 Tishrei; and the immediately following holiday of the "eighth day" of Sukkot (Shemini Atzeret).

Next the Torah discusses the lighting of the menorah in the Temple, and the showbread; (lechem hapanim) placed weekly on the table there.

Emor concludes with the incident of a man executed for blasphemy, and the penalties for murder (death) and for injuring one's fellow or destroying his property (monetary compensation).


HAFTORAH IN A NUTSHELL
Ezekiel 44:15-31
This week's haftorah discusses various laws that pertain to the kohanim, the priests, a topic also discussed at length in the first part of the week's Torah portion.

Ezekiel prophesies about the service of the kohanim in the third Holy Temple which will be rebuilt after the Final Redemption. The prophet describes their priestly vestments, their personal care, whom they may and may not marry, and their special purity requirements which preclude them from coming in contact with a corpse, unless it's for a next of kin. He also discusses their calling as teachers and spiritual leaders.

The prophet conveys G‑d's word: "You shall give them no possession in Israel; I am their possession." The kohanim do not receive a portion in the Land of Israel, instead they partake of the sacrifices as well as various tithes.


SAGES ON THE PARSHAH

Speak to the kohanim, the sons of Aaron, and say to them . . . (Leviticus 21:1)

"Speak" and "say"—enjoin the elders regarding the youngsters.

(Talmud; Rashi)

The above dictum, which constitutes a primary biblical source for the concept of education, also offers insight into the nature of education.

The word used by the Talmud and Rashi—lehazhir, "to enjoin"—also means "to shine." Hence the phrase "to enjoin the elders regarding the youngsters" also translates as "to illuminate the elders regarding the youngsters." Education is not only an elder teaching a youngster; it is also an illumination for the educator.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)

Property: Seeking Short term accommodation

My name is Aryeh, and I am reaching out to express my interest in seeking short-term accommodation with a religious family in the Caulfield, St Kilda area. I am a middle-aged religious male and am currently in need of a temporary place to stay.
I am willing to pay for room rental and food during my stay, and willing to help with chores around the home.
I am kind, respectful, responsible, and trustworthy.
If you or someone you know is open to hosting me for a short period, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity. I am open to discussing the terms of the arrangement and ensuring that it is mutually beneficial for all parties involved.
Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Warm regards,
Aryeh
