Canadian Web Award

Kol Echad is the official award-winning website of Forestdale Heights Lodge #2667 B'nai Brith Canada. The print version is published monthly 10 times a year. The site undergoes a major update monthly and periodic updates throughout the month as material is provided.
Kol Echad is designed to inform, educate, and entertain members of the lodge. It welcomes any and all articles or letters from members of the lodge and their families. Members are free to write or comment on any topic. If you do not wish to receive the printed bulletin, please tell Harvey Silver. He can be reached at Harvey Silver.

The first meeting of 2018, on Monday, January 8, started with an interesting speaker, discussing a timely and important topic that affects everyone. Unfortunately, only six members came out to hear former Lodge member Lloyd Lindsay speak about Technology & Security.

Chanukah Party
Who knew a dreidel could stop in mid-twirl and reverse direction. Actually, it can’t; it’s simply an optical illusion caused by a certain type of overhead lighting. However, this novelty proved to be the entertainment portion at this year’s Lodge Chanukah Party.
Read (and see) all about it!

Hearing Solutions

There was a time when every business and organization wanted its own website. B’nai Brith lodges deemed them the way of the future and the best method to communicate with members. Unfortunately, best-laid plans often go astray. Some lodges shrank, some disappeared and plans were abandoned. As a result, there are only two lodge websites remaining in B’nai Brith Canada in 2018 (Don Mills/LMOL has the other one).
