Chai Lifeline Families Set Sail into Chanukah Spirit with Simcha Cruise

Children with serious illness and their families got into the Chanukah spirit with Chai Lifeline’s first-ever Simcha Cruise on Sunday night, November 21. More than 1,200 participants from across the tri-state area enjoyed delicious food, exciting games and activities, and breathtaking Hudson River views of the New York skyline and Statue of Liberty aboard the three-story luxury yacht. The Chanukah Party was sponsored by Cross River Bank.

“One of the messages of Chanukah is about bringing light to the darkness,” said Rabbi Simcha Scholar, CEO of Chai Lifeline. “The mission of Chai Lifeline is to help bring light to those that are in the darkness. To bring joy, happiness, and support to those who need it most. This Chanukah party exemplifies all that our dedicated staff and volunteers do throughout the year on behalf of our families.”

Following a buffet dinner, children took part in arts and crafts, face painting, magic and bubble shows, prize giveaways, and more. Yitzy Haber of The Shnitzel Guys emceed the jam-packed party, which featured a comedy stunt show by Wacky Chad and a rocking concert by Yoni Z.

“We all had a great time!” said one Chai Lifeline mother. “The kids—and us—enjoyed the loads of entertainment. They were so happy with all you had in store for them. There was something for everyone. Our kids look forward to this all year. They may be little, but they are not too little to feel your love!”

“Not only did all my children have such a great time but they also came away from this with a more meaningful look on life,” said another mother. “Thank you for making Chanukah so special for our entire family!”

Chanukah parties and events will take place across Chai Lifeline’s various U.S. and international regions and more than 50,000 toys will be distributed to children and families around the world this Chanukah season.

Chai Lifeline is a leading international children’s health support network, providing critical support to children with life-threatening and lifelong illnesses and their families. To learn more or to make a donation, visit www.chailifeline.org
