The Chabad 31st annual L’Chaim “To Life!” Telethon raised a total of over 4.2 million dollars during an intensely emotional 3 hour extravaganza. Due to the current challenging economic times, Chabad has worked overtime to service communities around the world through their centers, schools, homeless shelters and drug treatment centers.
The evening began with an introduction by returning host Larry King. King pointed out that “each of us has friends who have lost their jobs and could use our help tonight.” King then introduced Rabbi Shlomo Cunin, Director of Chabad of California.
