Hi everyone

This is my first attempt at blogging so please be patient with me till I get the hang of it.

I can't help but wonder at the way communications have leaped forward over the time I have been in Sheffield. When I came I had no idea what a computer was or how to use one. Some years later before windows was born, mitt mazel und brocho, Mira Burchhardt gave me her late husband's Amstrad word processor. This is now the equivalent of something prehistoric in computer years but it did the job for me at the time. Now I'm blogging! Oh well if it gets anyone to shul it's worth it.


  1. Congratulations for boldly going where few Rabbis have gone before.

  2. Dear Rabbi Golomb,

    Mazal Tov on the new website, which provides the internet surfer with a glimpse of the very warm, caring country community of Sheffield - a Jewish community with a Jewish heart.

    For more ideas to add to your website, such as previous editions of the Shull Newsletter, maybe check out the South African Union of Orthodox Synagogues website

    Mazal Tov too on your Blog. What your "About Me" fails to mention is the tremendous chesed you, your Rebbetzin, and family are involved in on a daily basis, not only for the community you serve, but also for students and overseas strangers visiting Sheffield.

    May you, your good Rebbetzin, your family, and your community be blessed with material and spiritual blessings far beyond each one's desires.

    Good Shabbos from Johannesburg, where the Autumn temperature daytime average 25 degrees C.

  3. Rabbi G

    Even if it doesnt get people to Shul it is worth it!!!!People are and should be interested in what you have to say. It will be great to get an electronic injection of Rabbi G!!

    Best to all the family


  4. Adding my congratulations to Heather's. I look forward to reading your blog and some interesting duscussions.

  5. woohoo!!! go rabbi g for finally gettiung in on the wonderful world of blogging!! maybe now the ppl will fall asleep in front of the computer instead of in shul! KIDDING!hatslacha!
