Where Were You at the End of 2019?

Scott Singer, Moshe Denberg, Robert Weinroth and Zalman BukietA wonderful celebration of the 8th night of Chanukah (the final night for the Festival of Lights). The celebration included a Balloon Menorah Lighting at Town Center Mall and by the Chabad of Boca Raton and Chabad of West Boca Raton.

There was lots of latkes (potato pancakes) and jelly donuts with games for the children.

A big thank you to Sal Saldana and his terrific staff at Town Center Mall at Boca Raton and members of Boca Raton Police Services Department for offering a safe venue for our residents to enjoy jelly donuts and potato latkes.

It was an opportunity to ring in the New Year in Golden Age style at a Five Star Diamond awarded event venue and historic landmark.

The Addison was a perfect venue for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party featuring delicious signature catering, an open bar with champagne tower, live entertainment, flapper dancers and, of course, an unforgettable countdown.

We were fortunate to get a VIP table which included a scrumptious surf & turf dinner! A festive beginning to the new year was had by all.

The Roaring Twenties are back!
