Lag BaOmer Barbeque:

On behalf of the Persian Hebrew Congregation, we would like to thank all those individuals that helped make our barbeque so enjoyable, safe and a great success.

We would like to thank Berta Barak, Moshe Natanzi, Ruth Miller, Rachel Jakofsky, Steve Newman and our president, Yossi Miller, for all their hard work for this event.

Thank you to all our sponsors!

We would also like to give special thanks to Michael Atias from Sara’s Tent for sponsoring much of the food that we enjoyed at the barbeque.


Homeland Security Grant Update:

BH, we are excited to inform our members that we have begun the first round of security enhancements for our building. Our contractor and his crew have started with upgrading our outdoor lighting, cameras and have installed two new metal doors. 

In the upcoming week we hope to have installed new security door closures and panic buttons and video intercoms. Gd willing, we will be installing new laminated windows in the social hall, kitchen and bathrooms beginning next month. 

This has been a year of hard work and preparation to secure the funding for this project. It is very exciting to see it actually happening. We wish continued Hatzlacha and Bracha to our PHC security team and all their efforts to keep our shul family safe.

A tremendous Chazak UBaruch to Lisa Gaffen for overseeing this project and securing the grant for PHC. Thank you, very much!
