Sunday morning was an absolutely gorgeous day filled with sunshine as about 35 friends gathered to celebrate Sukkot. Thank you to everyone for sharing in the simcha of building, covering and decorating our Sukkah. Rabbi Tom also led us in song and introduced us all to the tradition of shaking the lulav and the joyous citrus smell of the etrog.

OJC’s 2nd Summer BBQ of the year took place on August 28th at the Mission Activity Center on Sarsons Beach. The weather was fabulous and over 60 guests thoroughly enjoyed the event. Everyone was treated to the exquisite BBQ skills of Mondy Challmie and Nuri Fisher. Thank you to them both for the delicious food that was grilled to perfection. Very special thanks to Mondy Challmie for arranging, shopping and transporting the OJC food along with all our guests that brought extra treats to make it a successful event Hope to see you all out for the High Holidays and an early Shana Tova.

The OJC had its first social function in nearly TWO years on Saturday February 19 at Stuart Park outdoor skating rink. Thank you to the many friends that joined us to skate, kibbutz and hang out enjoying warm hot chocolate and coffee. Initially the weather was not ideal but within a short time it was a beautiful sunny and quite setting for everyone to enjoy… We even learned that a large contingent in our community speak Spanish. It was really exciting to see so many families and we are looking forward to being able to get together again very soon.
