Has it really been a year already?
Rabbi Joshua Kalev started at Manhattan Beach’s Congregation Tikvat Jacob Beth Torah (CTJ) on July 1, 2016. We were fortunate enough to sit down with the Rabbi and capture his thoughts on video as he started the new job then. So now, we’re going to make a tradition and catch up with him on video every year, this time of year, for a status update.
You can check out the video clip here:

For summer 2017, CTJ will be having services at the beach on four different occasions, and combining it with a Jewish Olympics, the Rabbi notes.
“Come at 6, play a sport, have dinner and a musical service at the beach.”
For those new to CTJ, the synagogue is “about exploring Judaism at your own pace, on your own terms. That’s what we’re all about and we’re here to help support you in that journey.”
