Chabad Telethon Viewed By Millions, Garners Millions

Los Angeles, CA

Millions of viewers watched the popular Chabad of California annual telethon which aired last night on Channel 9. The six hour program, which featured a colorful line-up of Hollywood stars and noted personalities, garnered $7 million for Chabad's social, spiritual and educational outreach work in the state.

The event offered a look at the dynamic activities in the state of California which has Chabad centers along the entire coast, and inspired viewers with Chasidic song and dance. A particularly inspirational segment was the Avina Malkeinu prayer from the liturgy of the High Holidays, performed by Chasidic singing star, Avraham Fried.
