‘Gelt. was alive and well this Chanukah down under, with Lipa Schmeltzer at Melbourne’s Friendship Circle’s exclusive concert for Friendship Circle participants, volunteers and families.
Volunteers, Fc participants and families alike were all bouncing to the beat as Lipa sang “Abee gezunt” and Shtei uf.
As the Friendship Circle participants alighted the stage, Lipa soon found himself joined by an all too happy band of newly found vocalists and entertainers, giving Lipa some of his fiercest competition to date.
When asked why Lipa came to Melbourne a response was heard “Because it’s a Lipa (leap) year.”
A special thanks goes to Rabbi Yossel Gutnick and the event organisers, Avremel Weisberger, Mordi Benedikt, Yumi Koppel and FC Director Rabbi Mordy Engel.
