Local teens go to Brooklyn for Jewish Heritage Night
Rabbi Yosef Orenstein, is pictured bottom left, with members of the Valley Chabad CTeen group of Woodcliff Lake. They joined thousands of people — including more than 100 teens from four Bergen County Cteen chapters — Franklin Lakes, Teaneck, and Tenafly — and over 30 Cteen chapters from across the tristate area, for Jewish Heritage Night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The star-studded event included lighting a basketball menorah, a performance by acclaimed Jewish superstar Yoni Z, and a “rabbis vs. teens” halftime game.
The Nets were one of at least 17 professional sports teams around North America to host Chanukah menorah lightings and parties this year.
