Joshua Kalev was welcomed officially to the CTJ Manhattan Beach community Sunday as the new senior rabbi. (He joined in July, but with summer activities and the high holidays of fall, CTJ wanted to make it official with a ceremony before hanukah rolled around.)
The event was kicked off by Rabbi Kalev’s wife and fellow rabbi Selilah, (she runs Temple Menorah’s pre-school) who marched with her husband, their kids and rabbi emeritus Mark Hyman through the sanctuary. Back on the bima, Rabbi Mark passed the torah symbolically to Rabbi Kalev.
