That 5-kilo box of leftover matzot isn’t the only thing stale; thing’s this week are pretty quiet in Givat Shmuel, as everyone recovers from the holiday and life gets back to normal. Here’s what’s happening:

  • Today, the Givat Shmuel Municipality is opening the city’s new tennis courts to the public, and is celebrating by inviting Israeli tennis greats, Shahar Pe’er and Andy Ram. The festivities start at 17:30, at Sportek Givat Shmuel.
  • On Monday, BIU’s Department of Overseas Students is hosting a lecture on the Neremberg Trials, in early commemoration of Yom HaShoah.
  • Etgarim is creating a new biking chug for children with special needs is – Sundays in Park Ramon between 17:00-19:00 – and they’re in desperate need of volunteers! To volunteer (ages 15+), please contact Shira Gabay: shirag@givat-shmuel.muni.il | 050-2059223.
  • SAVE THE DATE!!!
    As every year, The GSC will be organizing a Tekes Yom Hazikaron. We’ll be posting more info soon, but we’ll be having a special guest speaker discussing her role during the War of Independence before the 20:00 siren, and testimonies given by community members who’ve lost family and friends in service to the country afterwards.

PS: In light of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook made some changes that are throwing a wrench in our ability to automatically add community events to our website and newsletter.
Until we sort out a good fix (volunteers and donors can speed it along), please make sure youmanually add your events to the Givat Shmuel Community Calendar.
