On May 19, The Shul Chabad Lubavitch held its Great Jewish Family Festival at Heritage Park in Farmington Hills. It was a day filled with community spirit, great volunteers and gorgeous weather. 

Attendees enjoyed pizza, music, mini golf, a magic show, games and more to celebrate Lag b’Omer together. 

The Shul sends a special thank you to Flagstar Bank, DTE Energy and Mark & Debbie Druck for enabling this to happen with their support and sponsorships, and to the Friday Boys and the Shinshinim (Israeli high school students participating in a six-month service program) for creating a welcoming feeling. 

The day couldn’t have happened without the help from community volunteers.
