  3. what a party! thank lipa shwartz and mrs silberstienn, and all coordinators m wulliger, s spitz, y samuel, y yifrach for all your hard work and dedication to this wonderful organization and a thanx to all volunteers for spreading the smiles 🙂

  4. The Mayor basically thanked Lipa and volunteers and presented a plaque to the organization. But my favorite part is toward the end when Avrohom Fried hands Menashe the mic and asks him if he wants to sing. Menashe politely hands him the mic back and says “not only do I sing off-key but I even speak off-key”! That got the crowd laughing.
