(lubavitch.com) Last Friday night Chabad House at Wimbledon hosted the Israeli Deaf Football Team, who had come to the UK to play Great Britain in the first leg of the European Deaf Football Championships qualifying games.
Moshe Ivgi, Director of the Israeli Deaf Sports Association, brought his team of 25 to enjoy a traditional Friday night meal.
The Shabbat dinner was hosted by Rabbi Nissan and Sarah Dubov and their family, together with Ronnie and Loretta Harris. Guests participated in animated conversation in Ivrit, English and sign language, interspersed with lively Shabbat song and dance. As the dinner drew to a close, several of the participants stood up and expressed their appreciation for the warmth and hospitality they enjoyed at Chabad, and the memorable Shabbat experience.
