PHOTOS: Misameach Cruise Sails Again

Misameach families spent a beautiful fun-filled evening last week aboard a luxurious 4 floor cruise ship on the Hudson River, where they experienced a much-needed dose of joy, entertainment and inspiration. The cruise had hot food, singers, jugglers and clowns. The music, singing, dancing and geshmake ruach was felt by young and old!

Although rain was in the forecast, B”H from boarding through the end of the cruise there was no rain at all and all went as planned. The energy on the boat was palpable. Misameach’s annual cruise has become a highlight for the families and they look forward to it all year.

The main cruise sponsor was Itzik and Etah Unger in memory of their beloved family member. The food sponsors as well as the dozens of volunteers, singers, entertainers and producers all went above and beyond to make this cruise especially special. Liberty Landing Marina and their courteous staff were very helpful and instrumental in getting the cruise off to a great start. The medical team on board was headed by Dr. Zemel.

The Music was led by the Yossi Shtendig production, and we had along with them Reuven Brecher, Leni Cohen, Moishy Zuckerman, The Stellar Production, Lipa Schmeltzer, Reuvi Litzman musici, Yoni Z., Uri Davidi, and Chatzi Katz performing and entertaining the families on the cruise for hours nonstop all pro bono. They had the people singing along and joining enthusiastically. The children were thrilled with the Simcha jugglers and Kinder Shpeil clowns. Yossi Rosenthal took pictures of the families, making lasting memories as always with his Magnet Memory.

They all worked together to make the entertainment run smoothly. These people enjoy doing things for others and making them happy all probono!

The volunteers who spent hours setting up the décor did a wonderful job, and the whole atmosphere was amazing. Hot supper was served to all sponsored by Epstein’s Meat, KM events, A Cut Above Events, GlattBite, Michael Schick, TLS, Aisle 9, Chezky Seitler with Positiv lettuce, as well as delicious ices dessert sponsored by Klein’s Ice Cream. Snacks were sponsored by Golden Fluff. There were snow cones, crafts and face painting for the children, jugglers and magicians doing their tricks and of course giftbags for each family.

Many who enjoyed the cruise, the entertainment, the chance to get away, the fresh air, the beautiful weather and the stunning views, expressed these sentiments. “We have no words to thank you for the beautiful cruise!…the cruise was a break from a life of doctor appointments.” The feedback keeps coming in! The 2024 cruise was a super fun and spectacular event that the families will remember for a long time and are already looking forward to next year’s cruise in Yerushalayim!

  1. Wow. This cruise is amazing. How Misameach pulls this off every is nothing short of remarkable. the amount of people donating stuff, in the1000s of $$ & hundreds of hours is Awe-inspiring. And, let’s be honest, I had them at my son’s wedding, Lipa and Yossi Shtendig (Hiskabtzi!!) are mesmerizing. Trully electric. As is Yoni Z, Uri HaTzaddik and everyone else.
    What this does to the Misameach families, as far as respite and Chizzuk cannot be measured in Olam Hazeh.
    Oh, wait – I played Hiskabtzi !!
