Meet Our Staff

Sarah Bouchoucha, Administrator

I was born in Calcutta, India, and then lived in London for 8 years and in New York for 2 years. I am now starting my 15th year as the Administrator at Kahal Joseph. I have enjoyed serving Kahal members and the community at large.

I love doing yoga and aqua yoga. I enjoy cooking and entertaining for all my friends and members of my family. I am the proud mom of 30-year-old Josh, who is currently training to be a therapist/counselor.

Penina Meghnagi Solomon, Administrative Assitant

I was born and raised in Tripoli, Libya. In 1967, after being forced to leave, I moved to Italy before making aliyah in 1970. There, I met my husband, who was from Los Angeles, and we moved here in 1973. Before I came to Kahal, I studied art and graphic design, and used those skills to work as an inker for the original Disney animation studios.

Although I work mainly in the office, I also do adult education workshops in Sephardic cultural practices and traditions, as well as work as an art specialist for the Talmud Torah. I love infusing joy into the practice of Sephardic heritage and traditions. In addition, I am a speaker with the JIMENA Speaker’s Bureau, and spend my free time painting watercolors, reading, researching the history and politics of the Middle East, writing poetry, singing with the Kol Sephardic Choir and enjoying photography.
