The Young Israel of Long Beach will be holding its annual scholarship concert on Motzaei Shabbos, February 25 at 8:30 p.m. It is scheduled to take place in an intimate setting at the YILB social hall, 120 Long Beach Boulevard in Long Beach. The concert will feature the renowned musical entertainer Benny Friedman, who will entertain the audience with his vast repertoire of popular and Chassidish Jewish music. The evening will be enhanced by the performance of the Shira Choir, whose incredible talents have resulted in unanimous acclaim.
The Young Israel of Long Beach, the cornerstone of the Orthodox Jewish Long Beach community, is led by Rabbi Dr. Chaim Wakslak. Rabbi Wakslak and Joseph Langer, a past shul president, conceptualized this scholarship concert 16 years ago. The proceeds from this scholarship concert have allowed many local community youngsters to attend yeshiva or overnight summer camp. Four years ago, following the untimely petirah of Bob Chiger, z’l, a young vibrant member of the congregation, it was decided that his memory would be most appropriately perpetuated by renaming the scholarship fund as The Robert Chiger Scholarship Fund. Robert had a unique connection to the youth of the synagogue in terms of their religious and character development. He was a strong proponent of the YILB youth and sports programs. This concert is strongly supported by Beth and Neil Sambrowsky, his daughters and their spouses Michelle and Eric Ehrenhaus, Andrea and Ariel Gantz, and sons Elliot and David.
