Beth Tikvah is looking for a new teacher for your Religious School in the fall! 
If you love children, are committed to enriching their minds and nourishing their souls, and would like to fulfill the mitzvah of Talmud Tora/teaching-studying Torah in the process (or know someone who fits this description) please contact Rabbi Rubin at
rabbirubin@btikvah.ca

Teaching our children is not only a terrific way to make some extra money and connect with the Beth Tikvah community, it's also a deeply rewarding (and urgently necessary) avodat Kodesh/sacred task.

GOLDENE MEDINA EXHIBIT
Showcasing the history of the Jewish Community in South Africa.
Join us for a special opening night: Monday, July 29 at 7:30pm.  
Exhibited at Beth Israel in the lower level conference centre from July 29 - August 14. 
General viewing: Monday to Thursday 10am - 4pm; Friday till 3pm.

THE GOLDENE MEDINA EXHIBIT tells the story of how, in the years 1841-2016, early Anglo/ German Jewish settlers, poor Yiddish-speaking Litvaks, refugees from Nazi Germany and the dispossessed Sephardim of Rhodes Island in the southern Mediterranean came together and shaped a shared identity - the South African Jew.   While the story of Jews throughout the Diaspora is one of immigration, the special circumstances of South Africa gave rise to a unique Jewish experience, and the stories are poignant, capturing the essence of the time.
