A pre-Chanukah celebration marked the third anniversary of the Levi Yitzchak Library in the Five Towns on Sunday.
Hundreds of children and adults attended the celebration, hearing a story from local firefighters and some safety tips in time for Chanukah.
Later, visitors enjoyed an Olive Press presentation by Rabbi Michoel Albukerk of Tzivos Hashem, learning how olive oil is made – from the actual olive to lighting the Menorah.
Participants also enjoyed doughnuts, Chanukah crafts and other library activities.
The library, founded 3 years ago by Shluchim Rabbi Zalman and Chanie Wolowik in memory of their 9 year-old son who passed away almost 5 years ago, is now a bustling center of learning and activity, with children coming from all over the tri-state area to visit.
The anniversary marks Levi’s birthday, a proud young Shliach who would have been 14 years old this Shabbos.
Since its opening, thousands of children have visited the library, learning about Judaism, Torah and Mitzvos in a fun and meaningful way, in a state-of-the art setting.
The Levi Yitzchok Library is located at 564 Central Ave, Cedarhurst, NY.
