On Saturday, September 8th we will be holding our first event of the year, a welcome back meeting featuring guest speaker Elizabeth May, OC, MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada. Please join us for lunch at 12:30 PM in the Jewish Community Centre of Victoria to be followed by Ms. May’s address to our group and a short discussion of Society business. Guests welcome for a suggested contribution of $10. Members, please bring your renewal forms if you have not already sent them in.
A small but enthusiastic crowd met on a beautiful summer day in the Beaver Lake picnic shelter with enough food for double their number. In other words, a typical VSHJ gathering.
Mel’s challah/egg sandwiches and Peter’s poached salmon were the hits of the picnic. Here are a few shots of the sated crowd.
The Pesach photos finally came back from the developers. (That’s our excuse and we’re sticking to it.) There were lots of great shots, but we could only include a small selection in the slide show below. Thanks very much to Kelly Acker for her photographic skills. Click on the photos to advance through the slideshow. Enjoy!
