DINNER RECAP

On February 15, Chabad of the Five Towns held its annual gala dinner at the Sephardic Temple. Hundreds of supporters came from throughout the community to celebrate Chabad as Ambassadors of Light and particularly Ambassador David and Tammy Friedman. Famed attorney Ben Brafman conducted a humorous, no holds barred interview with the Friedmans in which, most appropriately for Purim Katan, the theme of Divine Providence recurred throughout. Shalom Jacobs performed a moving rendition of Yerushalayim shel Zahav in honor of the Friedmans. CTeen Leaders and Friendship Circle presidents were honored as well. 

Much thanks to dinner chairmen Yosef Yitzchak and Penina Batsheva Popack, Gidon and Alla Shema of Jerusalem Florist, Gary and Suzanne Wallin of Gary Wallin Orchestra, Jeff and Shira Eisenberg, Israel and Sharon Garber, Sholom and Pessy Jacobs, and Shalom and Iris Maidenbaum for enhancing the dinner with their talents.
