The Friendship Circle of Chabad of South Broward is preparing the 33rd Annual South Florida Chanukah Festival Featuring The 8th Day Band at Gulfstream Park & Casino
The 33rd Annual South Florida Chassidic Chanukah Festival is getting bigger and better. Considering that over 10,000 people have participated each year since the event was moved to Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach back in 2007, the staff and volunteers preparing the upcoming Festival set for Thursday, December 13th, have coordinated a star studded program that will guarantee the biggest attendance ever. The crowd will be even bigger than last year, as tens of thousands of tourists, in love with Jewish Music, are expected that week in South Florida.
8th Day Band will be the featured entertainment.
8th Day, which was co-founded by brothers Shmuel and Bentzi Marcus, is quickly becoming one of Jewish Music’s hottest acts. The group has released four studio albums that get air play regularly on the radio in New York and Israel.
They have played hundreds of shows across the globe, including in: Lincoln Center in New York, American Airlines Arena in Miami,Universal Studios Citywalk in Hollywood, Hong Kong, Toronto, Spain, Chicago and many more.
8th Day’s fresh and unique sound is complimented by their catchy lyrics(mostly English with some Hebrew and Yiddish mixed in) and their spirited vocal harmonies. Their mega YouTube hit “Ya’alili” was rated one of the top singles in Israel in 2011 and most watched Jewish Music Video in Israel, the US and Australia in 2011.
Their most recent release “All You Got”, was released in June of 2012, and has been critically acclaimed worldwide.
The Festival takes place in Hallandale Beach, at Gulfstream Park, US1 and Hallandale Beach Blvd.The event is annually produced and directed by Chabad of South Broward, leaders in Jewish Education, social services and community outreach.
Last year, the Chanukah Festival was seen live around the world via Jewish TV @ Chabad.org. It was the most watched Live Jewish TV Show in 2010 & 2011. People from across the globe, from the Ukraine to Israel, from South America to Australia, were fixed to their screens for the three hour Chanukah production that warmed so many hearts and inspired so many souls.
The Festival will honor the Friendship Circle, a program with 87 branches worldwide, that caters to children with special needs, who are teamed up with local teenagers. These teenagers serve as volunteers and friends of these children with special needs.Click here to sign up for the Soul Of Miami email list.
