Tuesday, 23 December, 2014 - 6:53 am

Young Professionals event in Mahiki Chabad UK 2014(MM)4253 (2000x1333).jpgAn evening of Chanukah celebration and Jewish Flamenco music at the hip Mayfair venue, Mahiki, on December 22 marked the launch of Young Jewish London – a Chabad Lubavitch UK project bringing together Chabad resources for recent graduates and City-based professionals in their 20s and 30s.

Close to 200 City professionals came to light the menorah, spin Dreidels, connect with each other and enjoy the evening.   “It was great to have such a Jewish atmosphere, at such a trendy place” Said Jamie Freedman, a recent University Graduate working in the City “I’ve been here before, but the Jewish vibe and music, just took it to a new level”

Sasha Sher, who came along with her cousin visiting from Australia, commented “We’ve met some really great people tonight, the food was good, and I never thought there would be a Mahiki Menorah”.

As well as running large social events, the aim of the new group is to provide Jewish growth and business networking events for those starting out and moving up the ladder in their careers.

Industry-specific networking societies have been set up for those working in property, law and finance, with plans to launch other groups soon. Here, young professionals can benefit from advice from mentors, grow in their Jewish life, and make new friends at innovative events.

Rabbi Bentzi Sudak, Chief Executive of Chabad Lubavitch UK explained that the new group brings together Chabad’s corporate contacts, its 13 campus centres and its 6 London centres which run young adult programmes. “Our aim is to provide a seamless connection for young people, from campus to marriage with all that Chabad has to offer in their spiritual life as well as personally and in their career.”
