Last Sunday, approximately 300 hundred men, women and children showed up to attend a Young Chevra of Southern California family fun day and barbeque.
Young families from the Agoura, Long Beach, Valley, Lomita, Pico Robertson and La Brea communities came out in force to be united together and spend time with their families at Golf N’ Stuff, located in picturesque Norwalk, California.
Participants enjoyed a fun-filled day playing mini-golf, driving go karts and bumper cars, playing arcades, riding the Express Train and getting soaked on the bumper boats. This was followed by a sunny California BBQ and then a Tzivos Hashem children’s rally led by Rabbi Shua Einbinder.
A very diverse group was in attendance, including professionals, proprietors, teachers and shluchim. Ages ranged from young newlyweds to families with multiple children highlighting the unique sense of harmony and friendship that is developing among the young Chabad families throughout the southland.
Young Chevra has set the bar high for communities across the country. The relatively new organization was established only two years ago with the goal of promoting achdus among the young and rapidly growing Lubavitch communities of Southern California.
The Board of Young Chevra has wide representation comprised of members from all the main local Shuls and regional communities. These men and women devote their personal time and energy to help make events like the one on Sunday a huge success.
Young Chevra is now planning its annual weekend Shabbaton at Running Springs. The group has also launched a Gemach – Free Loan Fund for the Young Chevra community as well as a special Maos Chittim campaign to assist young families in meeting the costly needs of Pesach.
