2 Karen Kirsten here with her book “Irena’s Gift” Last Shabbat, Louise mentioned a book titled “Irena’s Gift”, written by Karen Kirsten, and we are excited to have Karen here in person today. We’ll hear from her soon, and she has copies of her book which you’ll be able to buy after the service, or you can buy it online at the link on the screen.

Karen has just finished the book which is her family story.
3 Please bring food for Shabbat morning teas It’s wonderful when we chat together over morning tea, after our 10:30am Shabbat service each week, so we encourage you to bring a plate of finger food to share.
