This past Sunday, Rabbi Nochem and Mrs. Rivkie Tenenboim invited the entire Jewish community to celebrate the official opening of the new location for the Chabad of Hewlett. Hundreds of Hewlett residents came to this special occasion, known as a chanukas ha’bayis. Chabad of Hewlett, now conveniently located at 1160 Broadway, had already been open for a number of classes and events over the past few weeks, but there had yet to be an official party celebrating this joyous event.
The chanukah ha’bayis was a tremendous success. The atmosphere was extremely warm and welcoming, thanks to the diverse group of people who attended the event. Everyone enjoyed the refreshments and was informed of the new and exciting programs that will be launched at the Chabad house.
One of the important parts of the evening was the mezuzah being placed on the main entryway to the Chabad House. This honor was bestowed on cherished community member Mr. Joe Cohen. The younger attendees were invited to join in a special program, including making and decorating their own mezuzah cases to bring home.
Another special event included in the chanukas ha’bayis ceremony was the commencement of the writing of a sefer Torah. All attendees were invited to write a letter in the Torah. When completed, the sefer Torah will make its home at the Chabad House of Hewlett, where they will celebrate once again!
Many thanks to all those who contributed and participated in the chanukas ha’bayis, with special acknowledgment to Mr. Joel Baruch from Gotta Getta Bagel, Mix Entertainment Pro, Exo Photography, and Rabbi and Rebbetzin Wolowik from Chabad of the Five Towns.
With Purim fast approaching, Chabad of Hewlett wants to make sure everyone in Hewlett marks on their calendars a special “Magical Purim” celebration on Wednesday, March 6, 5:30-7:30 p.m. They will be having a magic show by the famous Magic of Amore. There will be hamantashen, drinks, prizes, and, of course, the megillah reading. Sponsorship opportunities are available for $180, and regular admission is $5. For those who are unable to attend, there will be a later megillah reading at 8:00 p.m. at Ahuva’s Grill, located at 1326 Peninsula Boulevard. Chabad of Hewlett looks forward to spending their first Purim together, and all the many other celebrations that will follow.
Chabad of Hewlett is an affiliate of Chabad of Five Towns, established to serve the Hewlett Jewish community. For dedication opportunities, please contact 516-295-3413, [email protected], or visit JewishHewlett.com.
