800 Join Melava Malka in Miami

800 fathers, sons, siblings and grandparents joined an evening of learning and entertainment at Miami's Annual Family Melava Malka.

It was once again a record attendance at Lubavitch Educational Center's Annual Family Melava Malka 5778. Over 800 fathers, sons, brothers and zaidies filled the newly constructed outdoor facility, for an evening of learning, entertainment and camaraderie.

The beautifully decorated hall was an exciting indication of what was in store for the evening. The evening began with an organized learning program between families learning sichos of the Rebbe. It was followed by a seudos melave malka.

Guest speaker at this year's event was Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum, International Director of Tzivos Hashem, who inspired the guests with personal stories on the tremendous success of Tzivos Hashem, and with a call to action. Rabbi Weinbaum congratulated the Lubavitch Educational Center for inspiring the world on how to do mivtzoyim as he marveled at the 22,000 people the elementary school had helped.

Rabbi Benzion Korf, Dean of Lubavitch Educational Center and sponsor of the evening, chronicled the tremendous growth of LEC, expressing his gratitude to Hashem, the dedicated staff and to the participants. The event coordinator, Rabbi Yakov Garfinkel, related the tremendous achievements the students have made in many facets of the school, and, in particular, the selfless and inspiring act of a new student to LEC, Shimmy Wertheimer.

The evening culminated with a performance by illusionist and entertainer Ilan Smith. The South African put on a show that left many wondering "How did he do that?" Students were then able to take promotion pictures with Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum in recognition of their excellent efforts.

We extend our sincere gratitude to those who made the melave malka possible. Thank you to elemntary school principal Mrs. Shevi Sossonko, Chaya Mushka Amar, Shayna Bortunk, Ayelet Bortunk, and Avremi Rosenthal for their assistance in creating an evening that was both moving, inspiring and fun!

Lubavitch Elementary School is a part of Lubavitch Educational Center, which also includes Lubavitch Preschool and Beis Chana Middle and High School for Girls. The campus, which includes a seven-story facility, three-acre sports field and preschool playground and plans for a water park, is located in Miami Florida.
Under the directorship of Rabbi Benzion Korf, the school serves children from pre-nursery through 12th.

Love the name
It is very nice that the name of this melava malka is not father and son. For yesomim that name is a stab to the heart. Kudos for calling it something else (in other communities they adopted the name mdor dor).

A grateful parent
Rabbi Garfinkel chose the profession to make a difference in his students lives,and works to fulfill that purpose every day.
The most powerful force in education is the connection between teacher and student. This special bond is what leads to student empowerment and academic success. It is at the heart of learning.
Miami will forever be grateful to and motivated by him.
I am deeply inspired by the teachers of LEC who positively impact the lives of students—not just this week, but every week. Here’s to all of you!
