Chassidic Chanukah Festival Returns For 31st Year


Share Button

The 31st Annual South Florida Chassidic Chanukah Festival is getting bigger and better. Over 10,000 people have participated each year since the event was moved to Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach in 2007. The upcoming festival planned for Wednesday, December 8, has a star-studded program that will likely see the largest attendance ever.

 

World-renowned child prodigy Ethan Bortnick will once again grace the stage of the world’s largest Chanukah festival. Ethan has a stage presence that is nothing short of remarkable.

 

Jewish music superstar Benny Friedman will be also part of the concert celebration.  Benny’s bestselling debut album “Taamu” was released in 2009, and his rising popularity has made him very high in demand.

 

The festival will also feature twin chassidic acrobats from France. Their dazzling performance will provide an unforgettable viewing experience.

The festival is held at Hallandale Beach, Gulfstream Park, US1 and Hallandale Beach Blvd. The event is annually produced and directed by Chabad of South Broward, leaders in Jewish Education, social services and community outreach.

 

The festival will be preceded by a 100-car menorah parade, starting out from the Yeshiva Gedolah of Greater Miami, under the patronage of Florida Friends of Lubavitch.

 

Other festival highlights include the lighting of Florida’s Largest menorah, led by Cantor Rabbi Yossy Lebovics and a large lineup of community leaders, free Chanukah gelt and goodies for the thousands of children in attendance, a delicious dinner (for a nominal fee), and scores of valuable prizes.

 

Rabbi Levi Tennenhaus, the event coordinator and Chabad’s program director, encourages those who can afford it to get reserved seating: “The event, as always, is free. However, in addition to our major sponsors, individuals are entitled to reserve VIP seats for $100 per seat. This will help both the festival, which runs at an enormous cost as a service to the community, and individuals who want the luxury and convenience to sit up front with their seats reserved exclusively for them and their families.”

 

For more festival information, and to reserve VIP and box seats, please call 954-458-1877, e-mail Itchabad@gmail.com, or log on to chabadsouthbroward.com.
