Select Month

All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas                                            April 2021


  I’d like to wish each of you a Happy and Blessed Easter.   Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have lived with the last 13 months, this year’s Holy week will once again be different for most of us, and the entire Christian world as well.

There does seem to be “light” at the end of the dark tunnel we’ve had to live with this past year.  I’m referring of course to the Vaccine that hopefully everyone in Ben Ziri have taken and is the beginning  to returning to a normal life once again.  The Order of Alhambra has recently approved Caravan’s to have meetings and events , providing  each Caravan follows  State and County pandemic guidelines.

I think it is time Ben Ziri considers having monthly meetings again, as well as some type of social gathering; keeping in mind San Diego counties current pandemic guidelines.  If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions on getting Ben Ziri back ‘together’ again please call me.

Mike Caligiuri, Grand Commander.

All Caravan Functions will be Postponed until the Coronavirus Pandemic has passed. Be Safe and God Bless.

Dear Friends,

We hope this email finds you happy, healthy and in good spirits. Our students will miss seeing you in-person this spring at the annual Scholarship Donor Appreciation Luncheon. Until we can be together, we wanted to share personal stories of gratitude from some of our students so you could see how your generosity has positively impacted their lives.

With our heartfelt appreciation, please view the video below.


You – our dedicated scholarship donors – are fulfilling dreams, changing lives and making the world a better place – one student at a time. You are helping students gain the education and experience they need to succeed. Their success will impact their families, our communities, and quite possibly, the world. You can be confident that your scholarship support has changed lives and opened doors to new opportunities.

On behalf of San Diego State University, thank you for supporting our students. Thank you for being a life changer!
