Entertainment scheduled for Chanukah festival is sure to be a hit.

The 32nd annual South Florida Chassidic Chanukah Festival, set for Monday, December 26, will be bigger and better than ever – and that’s saying a lot, since more than 10,000 people have participated each year since the event was moved to Gulfstream Park in 2007.

Musician Benny Friedman will perform a live concert. His bestselling debut album “Taamu” was released in 2009 and has put him in high demand. Yisroel Amar, Nosson Zand and twin chassidic acrobats from France will also be featured. Other highlights will include the lighting of Florida’s largest menorah, led by Rabbi Yossy Lebovics, free Chanukah gelt and goodies for children in attendance, a delicious dinner (for a nominal fee) and scores of valuable prizes.

Entertainment scheduled for Chanukah festival is sure to be a hit.

The festival will be preceded by a hundred-car menorah parade, starting from the Yeshivah Gedolah of Greater Miami. The festival is a Florida Friends of Lubavitch event. Rabbi Levi Tennenhaus, coordinator and program director, encourages those who can afford it to get reserved seating. “The event is, as always, free” said the rabbi. “However in addition to our major sponsors, individuals may reserve VIP seats for $100 per and help defray the enormous cost.”

Chanukah marks the birthday of Chabad of South Broward. The first Chabad Center in Broward County, Chabad of South Broward now runs over forty programs and institutions. The organization is headed by Rabbi Raphael and Goldie Tennenhaus, who came to Broward County in December 1980.

The celebration will take place at Gulfstream Park, 901 S Federal Highway, Hallandale, Florida. For more festival information, or to reserve VIP and box seats, please call 954-458-1877 or email levi@chanukahfestival.com.
