     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.
