Hia 😊


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
