SIMCHAS BEIS HASHOEIVA
Monday night we enjoyed a FABULOUS Simchas Beis Hashoeva!! We all gathered in the parking lot of Ariel Market to enjoy a MAGIC SHOW, Special CHILDREN'S PROGRAM AND RALLY and of course, LIVE MUSIC AND DANCING!
It truly highlighted FOR THE KIDS, by the KIDS.
Unique additions this year: Clown! Face painting! and more!!
We showed up at 10 a.m., excited for the day. But the activities and fun far surpassed what we could have imagined! The bus ride itself was lots of fun, with a Sukkos Scavengar Hunt and games to keep us entertained. Then we got off the bus and had a real cool time building a sukkah for lunch. The children's rally was INCREDIBLE! I felt so special as I made a real kiddush Hashem and Kiddush Lubavitch, lighting up Newport Beach with the 12 pesukimg!!
Finally we BOARDED THE BOAT!! Before even pulling out, we were already treated to sea lions and pelicans. But it only got better....Tens of dolphins danced around our boat, making shows, jumping and spinning and spitting water. What a sight!
The fun DID NOT end there! After the incredible boat ride, we went to the nearby park for a highly active and fun LASER TAG and BOOGER WARS - yes it was as funny and FUN as it sounds...
It was truly beautiful to see over 250 kids come to Shul to dance with the Torah.
The children were given the kibud of saying the atah horeisas and boy did they say it with chazonus! Special children certified l'chaims were given out and delicious snacks too. And when the dancing started, it was a beautiful sight!
After dancing up an appetite, the children were treated to a YUMMY yom tov Seuda.
Truly an event FOR THE KIDS, BY THE KIDS!
As we know, all good things come to an end! Until next time at another SOLD OUT KYY event!
Parshas Ha'azinu RECAP
What a week - again! Even after being in shul for 3 days straight, the mispallelim and mispallelps showed such beautiful behavior and Derech Eretz during davening!
We enjoyed an incredible laining by Habochur Hatomim Ha'almuni MENDEL RAVNOY and heard a great Hashgocha Pratis story about Tashlich from RMD. Talking about fish, RMD wore a really funny FISH HAT to tell us all about the upcoming SUKKAH HOP to whale watching and dolphins! (See more details on our register page....)
Nochum Zalman Gorelik was the KARTIS MAN and a beautiful Yom Kippur Machzor was raffled off. Enjoy the rest of Tishrei and KYY will see you back in full force on Shabbos Bereishis!!!

Our first Shabbos was a true role model of just how incredible KYY is! The boys and girls piled in, with over 15 NEW children coming in from Mini Minyan/Bainany. We are so proud of them for their incredible participation, and the rest of the Mispallelim and Mispallelos for showing the GREAT way to behave and daven with Derech Eretz. Kol Hakavod! The new rooms looks gorgeous, with freshly painted walls and light fixtures - it made davening all the better. And our baal koreh - Muli Berger - did such an amazing job.
And to top it all off REB BERY'L bought DELICIOUS cupcakes for every member of Ezras Anoshim, Noshim, Bainany and Mini Minyan in honor of our first full Shabbos. Thank you to our Tzorchei Tzibbur Yid!
Looking forward to more special Shabbos davenings like this week...
WOW!! What an incredible "TEST RUN" we had this week in KYY!
Overflowing with children, we needed to add more and more chairs, BH! KYY just keeps getting bigger and better! All 5 divisions were PACKED!
And boy are we excited to see the brand new make-over our Youth Wing is receiving.....this year will be the best yet, we can feel it already!
