Simcha selected for games
Simcha San Diego Kosher Catering has been selected as the official catering sponsor of the upcoming Jewish Community Center Maccabi Games. Simcha will be providing all the food served at the games, as well as events surrounding the games.

The event combines sports, cultural and social activities that attract athletes from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Israel, South America, Australia and Europe.
