Sephardi group cancels fair

Sephardi group Chazak has announced the postponement of its third Mashalla Fair, due to take place on 22 March, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Taking to Facebook, the group said: “We are very disappointed to announce that we have to postpone the upcoming Mashalla Fair which was due to take place on 22nd March due to the Coronavirus threat!

We will be in touch in the near future pG [please God] with a new date once things are more certain.”

In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears open for all that Chazak has coming up!”

Rabbi Moshe Levy, Executive Director of Chazak said, “Chazak had planned to hold its largest community event of the year, the Mashallah Fair on the 22nd March. Mashallah is an annual event previously attended by more than 700 people with camel riding, monkeys and a shuk amongst other interactive Sefardi themed activities. This year due to the unforeseen turn of events, and in accordance with Government safety guidelines on large events, we will now postpone the Mashallah Fair to a date at which everyone is able to attend. Please G-d as soon as it becomes possible, we will make this year’s Mashallah Fair even bigger and better than ever before and we look forward to welcoming the community to Chazak’s sefardi extravaganza. ”
