PHOTOS: A unique event was held Sunday at K’hal Zichron Yaakov, where four different communities came together for a ‘CommUnity BBQ’.
Members of the Hebrew Culture Club of both the Fairways and the Enclave joined with members of the Elmwood and Hearthstone communities for an afternoon of unity and fun.
The event featured a catered BBQ by Joe Mutterperl of South Side Sandwich Shop, and a special magic show that entertained young and old alike.
“The atmosphere was one of camaraderie and unity,” says one of the organizers. “During the time of the three weeks as well as this trying time for our brethren in Israel, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to get together with our neighbors and express our unity and friendship between all our communities here in Lakewood.”
After hearing the enthusiastic reactions from the attendees, the organizers say they hope to schedule more such events in the future with even more communities joining in.
