After 38 Annual Dinners, which merited until 27 Adar 1, 5752 annual letters from the Rebbe, Congregation Levi Yitzchok-Lubavitch & Chabad of South Broward Headquarters knew “the show must go on” and has planned an action packed Virtual Dinner for Tuesday night, 26 Elul, September 15, featuring Rabbi Abba Perelmuter as Master of Ceremonies and Jewish Music Superstar Benny Friedman Live!
Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, Head Shliach in South Broward, admits that Covid-19 has warranted adjustments.
“Instead of 22 Minyanim in the 22 Chabad Houses of South Broward, there will be some 40 Minyanim this year for the High Holidays. We have given over 1,000 hours of live Zoom Torah classes the last six months, in both Nigleh and Chassidus, beginning daily at 6:00am.
And from day one of the Pandemic, our office never closed. Rabbi Moshe Schwartz, our Administrator since 1988, has been the lifeline to thousands, including many seniors and Holocaust Survivors. We have helped 500 families with money, and we hope to help many needy families for Tishrei.”
Eishes Chayil at the Dinner is Mrs Rivka Lazerson, a Hometown Covid-19 Heroine.
Rivka Lazerson is a dedicated mother of three and loving and caring wife who works as an ICU nurse for Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood FL.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19 she has worked nearly non-stop directly with Covid-19 patients. She is an inspiration to her husband, family and community. Some weeks she put in over 70 hours of extraordinary work on the Covid-19 ward to help combat the virus.
Her selfless dedication to combating the virus has no doubt saved lives as well as helped hundreds to recover.
There is no charge to participate in the Virtual Dinner.
For those who would like to give Tzedakah for the needy in Florida for Tishrei, you can donate Here.
