Baltimore, Md – Sept. 25 – If you missed the show last night, you weren’t the only one. A ‘standing room only’ sellout crowd turned out for 8th Day’s Simchas Beis Hashoevah at Cheder Chabad.
The theater of the old Beth Jacob building, which is now Cheder Chabad, was full front to back. The front arches of the building were lit up in blue, and in true Chabad style, two mobile sukkahs were parked out front for concert-goers to make their brachos in. Kids (and their parents and grandparents) were dancing in the aisles and at the foot of the stage to their 8th Day favorites. Cheery Bim, Avraham, and May You Be Blessed saw cell phones lit and in the air. They also played some songs off their new album to the delight of the crowd. Another highlight of the concert was when Jewish Rock legend Avraham Rosenblum came up to jam with 8th Day during their performance of Yiddish Country.
“We were thrilled to sell out the night before the concert,” Mrs. Finkelstein, a concert-organizer proclaimed.
“8th Day is so apropos to the message of Cheder Chabad: Going l’maalah min hateva. We encourage our students to reach beyond their ordinary limits to achieve their full potential. The message in 8th Day’s songs are deep, and we are so happy to bring them back to Baltimore,” said Rabbi Elchonon Lisbon, Rabbi of Chabad of Park Heights and Executive Director of Cheder Chabad.
Cheder Chabad is now in its 7th year, with a preschool, boys elementary through 4th grade, and girls first grade, with more than 115 children from Baltimore, Silver Spring, Annapolis, and beyond –from across the entire spectrum of the Jewish community. The preschool begins with infant care through KinderGan, and each of the elementary classes hosts anywhere from 5 to 15 students.
And of course, the concert ended to the happy cheers of Ya’alili. Concert-goers were thrilled, and everyone was soaring out of the concert ready for Shemini Atzeres & Simchas Torah!
