CAMP B’NAI BRITH: The Ottawa Jewish historical Society, in partnership with the Soloway JCC, invite you to a retrospective evening of all things CAMP on Thursday May 17 at the Soloway JCC, in the Social Hall at 7:30 pm. Admission is $10. Memories and Mamaloshin, fantastic photos that will make you laugh, and wonderful food (including standard camp fare and Joe Louis) prepared by David Smith, Creative Kosher, will be served in the “Mess Hall”! To make this evening extra special, Mark Max and Russell Kronick have agreed to lead all of us in a super singsong. This will surely be a night to remember. Don’t miss this magical memory-filled party. CBB was a place we couldn’t wait to go back to. On May 17 we can go back for one more brief visit with our old friends. We hope to see all of you there. For more information, and to RSVP please contact the Ottawa Jewish Historical Society Office at 613-798-9818 ext. 264 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
