Parents were greeted by the sounds a wonderful string duo, hot soups, a lavish salad bar, assorted sushi trays, and delicious artisanal breads. Over soft and hard drinks, the moms and dads had the opportunity to meet and greet fellow parents, share notes and ideas in their common goal of raising their children.

The parents were then invited to sit down for a ‘comedy club’ style evening.

Beginning with opening remarks by Rabbi Berel Majesky, who thanked the many gracious hearts that make up the Friendship Circle. He noted that “the Friendship Circle has grown into a vibrant community and this growth is due to the constant support and encouragement we receive from our families.”

Up next was award-winning comedian Mike Fine, who had the room in fits with his quick wit.

Special mention was made of the Parent Advisory committee who has given many hours of their time to advise and further enhance the ongoing programs of the FC. Applied ABC for co-sponsoring the event, Sushi Spot and Mendy’s for sponsoring delicious food for the evening.
