The letter is too long for the Emmanuels Google ad page, so am emailing it to you.


Can you please post under Community?


Many thanks, and Shavua tov, Joanne







On behalf of the Committee, Rabbinical Team, and the entire kehillah of the Sassoon Yehuda Sephardi Synagogue, I extend our heartfelt gratitude to the members of the Melbourne Jewish community who attended the funeral and burial service of our dear departed member, Chana Frankland z'l.


The funeral, held in Melbourne, and the subsequent burial in Devenish required a considerable six-hour round road trip. We are truly touched and appreciative of those who made the effort to be present, ensuring that Reuben Frankland had the opportunity to recite kaddish, for his beloved wife.


The support and presence of those attendees provided comfort and strength to the grieving family, and we are deeply moved by the compassion of members, in the wider Jewish community, for their support during this challenging time.


We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to Rabbi Benjamin Kessly, Rabbi Pesach Steinberg, and Rabbi Menachem Aron for their exceptional work in organising and conducting such a meaningful service, as well as the Melbourne Chevra Kadisha.


And a special acknowledgment goes to Rabbi Steinberg for arranging transportation allowing attendees to journey to Devenish and back with ease.


During moments of loss, it is through acts of kindness and support that the Melbourne Jewish community truly shines, and we are grateful to have such caring individuals among us.


With heartfelt appreciation


Joanne Levy

Tisha b'Av Tzetl 5783

5:28pm - Fast Begins, Wednesday
5:57pm - Fast Ends, Thursday 

Laws and Customs
Starting in the afternoon (Wednesday & Thursday), Tachanun (confession of sins) and similar prayers are omitted.

The fast of Tishah B'Av begins this evening at sunset.

Some of the fast's mourning practices--such as refraining from Torah study other than texts related to the events and nature of the fast day--are observed beginning from midday today.

The final meal before the start of the fast, eaten shortly before sunset, is called seudah hamafseket. Only one cooked food is eaten at this meal, customarily an egg dipped in ashes.

"Eichah"--the Book of Lamentations--is read tonight in the synagogue after evening prayers.

See "Laws and Customs" for tomorrow, Av 9, for the particular observances of the fast day.

Mitzvah Minute: Tisha b'Av
Laws of Tishah B'Av

Mourning the destruction of the Temple and the exile of Israel, (see "Today in Jewish History") we abstain from eating and drinking, bathing, the wearing of leather footwear, and marital relations--for the night and day of Av 9 (i.e., from sundown on Av 8 to nightfall on Av 9). It is customary to sit on the floor or a low seat until after mid-day. Torah study is restricted to laws of mourning, passages describing the destruction of the Temple, and the like. The tefillin are worn only during the afternoon Minchah prayers. (For more laws and customs see link below.)

During the "Nine Days" from Av 1st to the Ninth of Av, we mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple. We abstain from meat and wine, music, haircutting, bathing for pleasure, and other joyous (and dangerous) activities. (The particular mourning customs vary from community to community, so consult a competent halachic authority for details.)

Consumption of meat and wine is permitted on Shabbat, or at a seudat mitzvah (obligatory festive meal celebrating the fulfillment of certain mitzvot) such as a brit (circumcision), or a siyum celebrating the completion of a course of Torah study (i.e., a complete Talmudic tractate). The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory initiated the custom of conducting or participating in a siyum on each of the Nine Days (even if one does not avail oneself of the dispensation to eat meat).

Citing the verse "Zion shall be redeemed with mishpat [Torah] and its returnees with tzedakah," (Isaiah 1:27) the Rebbe urged that we increase in Torah study (particularly the study of the laws of the Holy Temple) and charity during this period.

Shabbos Tzetl: Matot-Masei & Mevarchim Menachem Av

5:01pm - Candle Lighting, Friday
6:02pm - Havdalah, Saturday
(Melbourne Australia)
Eruv Status: See
Shabbat Shalom! 

This Shabbat is Shabbat Mevarchim ("the Shabbat that blesses" the new month): a special prayer is recited blessing the Rosh Chodesh ("Head of the Month") of the upcoming month of Av (also called "Menachem Av"), which falls on Wednesday of next week.

Prior to the blessing, we announce the precise time of the molad, the "birth" of the new moon. See molad times.

Matot-Masei in a Nutshell
Numbers 30:2–36:13
The name of the Parshah, "Matot," means "Tribes," and it is found in Numbers 30:2. The name of the Parshah, "Masei," means "Journeys," and it is found in Numbers 33:1.

Moses conveys the laws governing the annulment of vows to the heads of the tribes of Israel. War is waged against Midian for their role in plotting the moral destruction of Israel, and the Torah gives a detailed account of the war spoils and how they were allocated amongst the people, the warriors, the Levites and the high priest.

The tribes of Reuben and Gad (later joined by half of the tribe of Manasseh) ask for the lands east of the Jordan as their portion in the Promised Land, these being prime pastureland for their cattle. Moses is initially angered by the request, but subsequently agrees on the condition that they first join, and lead, in Israel's conquest of the lands west of the Jordan.

The forty-two journeys and encampments of Israel are listed, from the Exodus to their encampment on the plains of Moab across the river from the land of Canaan. The boundaries of the Promised Land are given, and cities of refuge are designated as havens and places of exile for inadvertent murderers. The daughters of Tzelafchad marry within their own tribe of Manasseh, so that the estate which they inherit from their father should not pass to the province of another tribe.

Jeremiah 2:4–28; 4:1–2.

This week's haftorah is the second of a series of three "haftarot of affliction." These three haftarot are read during the Three Weeks of mourning for Jerusalem, between the fasts of 17 Tammuz and 9 Av.

The prophet Jeremiah transmits G‑d's message to the Jewish people, in strong tones chastising all the sectors of the people, including the leadership, for their abandonment of G‑d. "What wrong did your forefathers find in Me, that they distanced themselves from Me, and they went after futility and themselves became futile?" He reminds them of the kindness G‑d did for them, taking them out of Egypt and leading them through the desert and settling them in the Promised Land, yet they repaid kindness with disloyalty. "For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me, the spring of living waters, [and furthermore, this was in order] to dig for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns that do not hold water."

G‑d asks them to view the actions of their neighboring nations, the Kittites and Kedarites, "and see whether there was any such thing, whether a nation exchanged a god, although they are not gods. Yet My nation exchanged their glory for what does not avail."

Jeremiah then goes on to foretell the suffering the Jewish people will suffer at the hands of their enemies, and also their erstwhile allies: "Your evil will chastise you, and you will be rebuked for your backslidings; and you shall know and see that your forsaking the L‑rd your G‑d is evil and bitter."

The haftorah ends on an encouraging note, assuring the people that if they return to G‑d with sincerity, they will be restored to their full glory.


Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying: This is the thing which G‑d has commanded (Numbers 30:2)

This verse can also be interpreted as follows: Moses spoke to the children of Israel regarding the heads of the tribes, that they must follow their instructions as one follows the word of G‑d.

(El, "to," can also mean "about"; li, which in this context translates as "of," usually means "to"; thus el rashei hamatot livnei yisrael ("to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel") can also read, "[And Moses spoke] about the heads of the tribes to the children of Israel, [saying: This is the thing that G‑d has commanded] . . .")
