Chabad of West Orange Celebrates Anniversary With Weekend of Festivities

Chabad of West Orange invites the entire community to attend their Grand Anniversary Celebration the weekend of December 23-24 at 401 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange.

“This Chanukah marks one year since our purchase and move into our new building,” said Rabbi Mendy Kasowitz, Director of Chabad of West Orange. “We are lucky to be hosting a guest cantor, world-renowned chazzan Aryeh Hurwitz, who will greatly enhance our festivities.”

The celebration will begin Friday afternoon, December 23, with a candle-lighting ceremony for all women and girls at 4 p.m. followed by evening services, which begin at 4:30 p.m. and will be led by Cantor Hurwitz. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. and will include a delicious traditional Shabbat menu, complete with the rebbetzin’s fresh homemade challahs. Following the main course, Cantor Hurwitz will entertain guests with a cantorial performance entitled, “Around the Globe.”

On Shabbat morning, December 24, Chazzan Hurwitz will lead musaf services followed by a free kiddush luncheon for the entire community. Then later that evening the Grand Finale will take place at 6:30 p.m. with havdallah, menorah-lighting ceremony and kumzitz concert with Cantor Hurwitz.

There is no cost for the Saturday-night havdallah, or menorah kumzitz. Kiddush Sponsorship is of course welcome. Email or call if you have any questions: [email protected] or 973-325-6311.
