It began with a small group of young couples from the Five Towns, who wanted to do something to benefit Be’er Hagolah, the preeminent kiruv yeshiva. Its focus is to educate any Jewish children whose families cannot afford the tuitions at private yeshivas and who would otherwise be sent to public school. They were looking for a way to have a great night out with their friends while raising much-needed funds for the yeshiva, with a special emphasis on purchasing tefillin for bar mitzvah boys. This will mark the 18th year of this unique event, which has taken fundraising events to the next level.
The Evening of Entertainment boasts a magnificent ambiance with spectacular dÃ©cor. Guests will enjoy a sumptuous dinner with family and friends at a lavish buffet replete with carving stations, a myriad of hot dishes, a sushi bar, salad bar, shwarma bar, and dessert bar. Attendees are treated to award-winning shows with every great name on the entertainment scene. The last few years have seen Jewish singers Lipa, MBD, Avraham Fried, Abie Rotenberg, and Boruch Levine; comedians; and fabulous entertainers, such as the Dunkin’ Devils acrobatic basketball team and the Fire and Ice pyrotechnic dance team, just to name a few. And attendees may try their luck at winning one of many unique prizes at the gala Chinese Auction.
