Chesed Kallah

Following the NFTY SOCAL Elections will be Chesed Kallah. Chesed, the Hebrew word meaning loving-kindness, is the theme of our new event, Chesed Kallah! Chesed Kallah will be shaped around bonding and community experiences for SOCAL to grow even closer. You will not want to miss this unique event! This event is focused on strengthening community, bonding with old friends while connecting to new ones, making new traditions. Chesed Kallah will start Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm.

All participants are invited to attend both Elections and Chesed Kallah.
