More than 300 people from across the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. area took part in the annual Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic Chanukah Party at the Bais Yaakov High School in Baltimore on Sunday, November 28. The event included a magic show, musical entertainment, and a full buffet meal for children with life-threatening and lifelong illnesses and their families.
“The Chanukah party allowed our families to just relax and enjoy time with others experiencing similar challenges,” said Nechama Miller, Senior Case Manager at Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic. “We’re so grateful to the volunteers who came out for these wonderful families and made it a day that everyone will remember for a long, long time. I want to give a special thanks to the Toy Drive Coordinators Nechama Meister and Rena Steinberg, as well as to Rachelli Goldberg for all their help in making this an event to remember.”
Towards the end of the program, each family was presented with a special gift based on their personal likes and hobbies. “My kids had the time of their lives,” said a Chai Lifeline mother. “The party was so kid-friendly and family-friendly – it made their Chanukah!”
“It was great seeing families from across the region come together to celebrate Chanukah,” said Rabbi Simcha Scholar, CEO of Chai Lifeline. “Chai Lifeline Mid-Atlantic, led by Nechama Miller, is dedicated to providing critical support to the community and bringing light and happiness into the lives of these children and families.”
