Passover Is Probably One (1) Of My Favorite Jewish Holidays Of The Year And It Shows! This year my friend Mitchell Troy invited ME to Celebrate Passover For The First Night which was being held by Rabbi Abba Perelmuter from Shul By The Shore at the Alpert Jewish Community Center in Long Beach, California. The service was quite nice and inspiring with plenty of songs to sing, light entertainment by the children and plenty of delicious Passover Food and Many Happy Faces To Go Around. I want to personally Thank Mitchell Troy for inviting ME there back on Friday, March 30, 2018. I want to also personally Thank Rabbi Abba Perelmuter and his staff for putting on a Fantastic Passover Seder Meal and Celebration! Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites /HPS

This place is fantastic! The exercise equipment they use is called "Hoist" and it's aerodynamic so it moves with your body, making it so there's less strain on the body. The people are extremely friendly and welcoming and I love the fitness classes, the pool, hot tub, library, art work and historical reflections. I love it all. It felt like home away from home when I was on a 5 week business trip and staying nearby!
