About our Shul

Once we had successfully organized our selves as a group, the next step was a shul. The Moeitzah (local council) agreed to allocate us a Dunam (1000m) of land to build a Shul. All we had to do was find the money!

 For many years we rented a small hall in the center of the town while continuously focussing our efforts on our permanent Beit Knesset.

Barainbow-over-shulruch HaShem after 10 years of much sweat and tears, we finally broke ground on our building.

With a large commitment from the Ben Harush family (the Shul is named in honor of their parents) we had the confidence to jump in and begin.

Quickly many families came forward and generously contributed to build the magnificent Shul we have today.

The Shul is truly one of the whole community,  with every Family having contributed to it , and more than 90% of the funding coming from the community.

We have had the privilege to bring to DSC01660life the extinct Petersburg community of South Africa by incorporating their benches, Bima and Amud in our Shul.

The Shul is a hive of activity with a thriving minyan and at least two and sometimes three shiurim a day. With the arrival of Rav Baruch and Pnina Weintraub activities have reached new heights.
