Several dozen people gathered in Jerusalem to celebrate the ‘Bar Mitzvah’ of Chabad of Beijing, China’s capital city, which was founded by Rabbi Shimon and Dini Freundlich 13 years ago.
The spectacular view, overlooking the Tower of David in Jerusalem’s old city, and the delicious food were enjoyed by the attendees.
“New friends and old, supporters and guests, everyone had a great time,” said Mrs. Dini Freundlich. “It was a ‘Beijing atmosphere’ in the heart of Jerusalem. By ‘Beijing atmosphere’ I mean a united group of frum, not frum, Chabadniks, Chassidishe, Chinese, Sephardim, Ashkenazim, Yekes, Litvaks and everyone in between – all celebrating together,” she said.
