Chabad of Broward County got the new year off to a great start with a successful burn the mortgage campaign.
After raising significant funds to help burn the mortgage for the mikvaos for the physically challenged, Chabad of Broward County celebrated 40 years with a dinner on the Grand Floridian mega yacht.
250 people came out to enjoy an evening of humor and masterful storytelling with Rabbi Abba Perelmuter, and a concert with Benny Friedman.
Among those honored were Rivka and Bruce Goldstein, who received the Chesed Award, and Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Adams. Chanie and Eran Israel, pillars in the spreading of yiddishkeit, were the recipients of the Ufaratzta Award.
