KJ Celebrates Lag BaOmer at Picnic
Over 50 people joined Kahal Joseph's Lag Ba'Omer celebration in Holmby Park on Thursday, April 29th. Many young families from our community participated in games, arts and crafts along with a BBQ that was enjoyed by all!

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Piano Raffle for supporting Kahal Joseph and wonderful events like these that bring us together as a community. We especially thank our Piano Raffle winner, Louise Nathan, who donated her winnings to Kahal Joseph!

We also thank our dear Rabbi and Bracha Halevy for their dedication and work in creating a lovely event. Their efforts were supported by Menocha Halevy, the Castel girls, Merna Ironi and Melissa Ironi whose help we greatly appreciate. We also thank Merna Ironi for donating toys for the kids to enjoy.

We look forward to many more joyous events, holiday celebrations and happy times to come at Kahal!
