Why the Dollars Count

The NCFJE Chabad’s tireless effort on behalf of all people, has achieved widespread recognition. Children and adults from all walks of life benefit directly from the public support of the Telethon. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency, the NCFJE on Long Island relies entirely on private contributions and receives no government funds.

Corporate & Community Involvement

The Chanukah Telethon has become a tradition on in the Tri-State for its upbeat and uplifting presentation. This year marks the incredible 22nd Telethon. Leaders in building and construction trades join us on the Live Telethon to let the public know they’re taking an active role in the efforts to help the community at large.


The Chabad Chanukah Telethon is one of the most watched Charity Benefits across the Tri-State area. Last year’s Telethon was watched by more than 10 million viewers across Long Island, the 5 Boros, New Jersey and Westchester County.

Celebrity Support

Every year, a veritable “Who’s Who” of entertainers, leaders in business, government and glitterati of all persuasions are well represented and participate in the Chanukah Telethon. They come to show their support of the on-going humanitarian programs of the NCFJE.

An Extravaganza of Entertainment & Saving Lives!!

Behind the fun and entertainment of the Chabad Chanukah Telethon is a very serious purpose. Its all about meeting the serious challenges of our times, its all about providing a warm “home away from home” for those who fall between the cracks.

Always focused on the big picture, funds raised on the Chanukah Telethon provide the vital resources in uplifting the lives of individuals and families, in an atmosphere of inclusiveness and caring. The support & acceptance of every human being regardless of race, religion age or financial status is the trademark of the NCFJE.
