    The 29th Annual South Florida Chassidic Chanukah Festival is scheduled for the last night of Chanukah, Sunday, December 28, at the Gulfstream Theatre, Hallandale Beach Blvd. and US 1, in Hallandale Beach; at 7:00 p.m. Performing at what is traditionally the world’s largest Chanukah event will be child prodigy Ethan Bortnick and the king of Jewish music, Avraham Fried.


     The festival is a project of Chabad of South Broward.  The gala will feature the lighting of Florida’s largest menorah. Kosher food will be available. The entertainment promises to be superb. 


     World-famous singer, Avraham Fried, has performed for 10 years at the Florida Chanukah Festival and has entertained audiences all over the world for 28 years.  His presence will not only attract Floridians, but thousands of Northerners vacationing in Florida December 28.


   Also performing will be seven-year old Ethan Bortnick, a pianist, composer and world-class entertainer.  He plays over 200 songs from memory and can play both by ear and by reading notes. Ethan composed over 30 songs and pieces of music that are being published. He plays classical, jazz, pop, folk and children’s music.

     Ethan has appeared on many popular televisions shows and has performed live and televised concerts. He has performed in and led symphony orchestras and has shared the stage with many famous musicians and performers.  He has raised record amounts for children’s charities.

 

     Admission to the festival is free, but this year, in addition to VIP seats, a section of box seats will be available to the general public for $25.


    According to Rabbi Levi Tennenhaus, Chabad’s program director, “This year we’ve arranged a different, bigger and better venue to accommodate a larger crowd. VIP and box seats are very limited, so book reserved seats as soon as possible.”  VIP and box seats are only available in advance.


     Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, Chabad’s executive- vice-president, says that Chabad’s response to terror is to add light. “The story of Chanukah and the message in the flames of the Menorah, is that darkness, evil and terror can be eradicated with light, goodness and random acts of kindness.”


    This year’s event will be dedicated to Rabbi and Mrs. Gavriel Holzberg, Hy”d, and the other victims of the terror attacks, Hy”d, in Mumbai, India.  Rabbi and Mrs. Holzberg were the co-directors of Chabad-Lubavitch in Mumbai. Their two-year-old son, Moishy, was bravely and miraculously saved by his nanny, Sandra Samuel.


    For more information and to reserve seats, please call 954-458-1877, email chabadsb@bellsouth.net or log on to chabadsouthbroward.com.
