GOLD COAST HAPPENINGS
Pesach has passed and whether you observe the Omer or not, this is a time to reflect and take stock of ourselves whilst we carry on with the business of life.
In May, we will be joined by the Moetzah in May at Temple Shalom Gold Coast and on Tuesday 17th May the community can join with the Rabbi's of the Moetzah in a Pot Luck Dinner. Please feel free to contact Temple Shalom Gold Coast and bring a plate to share and join us in this rare opportunity in Qld to enter into discussion with the Moetzah or the Rabbinic Council of the UPJ.
Likutey Moharan - we will starting a blog looking at this seminal piece of Chassidic writing by Nachum ov Breslov on a chapter by chapter basis (suitable for the novice). We will look at the main idesas presented in this work and then you are welcome to comment, use, write poetry. Whatever takes your fancy.
Heroes of Jewish History We have started a wiki (contributor generated database) on some of the more unconventional heroies of Jewish history whio have contributed to the spiritual richness of our beautiful civilisation. Don't expect the same 'old men' to be wheeled out, these are some of the giants who speak to our age (as true spiritual teachers always do). Who knows, you might find some inspiration and become a hero of Jewish History yourself.

We have started a prayer page. This is your area. Just place a request for prayers, then our members can put poetry, share favourite prayers, chants, meditations. All part of building a community of prayer.
Check out our Audiovisual Page
We have added more material on the Audiovisual Page. Reb Zalman teaching and some wonderful Chazzanut. Also, as we know many of you are Idan Raichel fans, we have added a little tit-bit for you to enjoy.
Wishing you all
