Our Update #31
Chol Hamoed Cruise
Children always look forward to Chol Hamoed family trips but when the head of the household is unfortunately not around, the entire Yom Tov takes on a gloomy note. Fortunately, the people at Dror take these matters to action and arranged a memorable cruise on the luxurious Duchess for the wives and children. A five star supper awaited the crowd along with a spectacular program. The families got an intimate opportunity to befriend each other while the kids could not get enough of the entertainment provided. From face paintings, magic shows, photo booth, drumming shows to an endless stream of singing and dancing with renowned singer Shimmy Engel and the talented meshoririm choir, hilarious comedy by AJ Greenwald and Mutty Zieger, every minute was fun filled to capacity.
With much thanks to all the dedicated sponsors who have made this event possible and to the Dror board members Rabbi Yisroel Hager, Yoel Usher Labin, Amrom Israel and Yidel Lichtenstien who have enabled this huge project to be the success that it was.
The thank you letters that came streaming in thereafter serve as the greatest testimonials. “Wanted to thank you for an amazing amazing day. ALL my kids had a great time. The kids talked about the cruise for the rest of Yom Tov. TYSM to everyone for another amazing event”
