We held our first meeting of AAHA in Toronto on October 5th 2008.

Thanks to the hard work of Victor Baruch (Sheikh al Hara), we met at the Jerusalem Restaurant in Toronto for a “buffet” lunch.

We had 47 people attend this fabulous lunch, which included: molochia, falafel, lamb, delicacies like Konafa, maalabia, baalawa and others……..

Everyone there had a great time. It was so nice to be together with old Alexandrians, and the spirit of camaraderie was definitely there. We met with many people we had not seen for years, and helped us rekindle and restart many relationships.

We were very fortunate to have amongst us Sandro and Anne-Marie Manzoni. Sandro entertained us with many “noktas”, which were hilarious, and brought back the spirit of old Egypt .

All in all it was a very successful get together, and we even got to create a Toronto chapter of AAHA.
