Chabad of SCV will host a mind games performance by famous mentalist Marc Salem Sunday evening at the Hyatt Valencia to celebrate the congregation's 10-year anniversary.

For Rabbi Choni Marozov, the anniversary symbolizes a decade of phenomenal growth for Chabad pf SCV.

“We started with nothing,” Marozov said.

When Marozov and his wife heard some in Santa Clarita wanted a Jewish center, they moved from Brooklyn, New York, to Santa Clarita not even knowing where they would stay.

Chabad groups of five or six began in a house and eventually moved to Lyon’s Ave. where a few hundred families are affiliated, Marozov said. 

Chabad of SCV is one of more than 3,000 Jewish education and outreach Chabad programs world-wide, according to Marozov. Chabad houses are unique because everyone is welcome all the time and there are no mandatory dues or membership, he said.

“(Chabad) encourages people to be good and be their best,” said member Naomi Young, 54 of Saugus.

An exciting element of the Chabad’s growth is the ability to afford and fill a long-term center. Currently, the congregation resides on Lyons Avenue in Newhall. But leaders are, “looking ahead to build a center as soon as a suitable property is found,” Marozov said.

“We can’t be complacent with what we have,” he said. “We need to grow. we have a bright future ahead.”

Marc Salem, a renowned Jewish mentalist, will perform at 8 p.m. Sunday at the Hyatt Valencia to raise money for the Chabad. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Advance tickets can be reserved until late tonight. Call (661) 254-3434 or visit www.chabadscv.com/salem. Chabad of SCV will also host a silent auction fundraiser with jewelry, furniture and getaways at 7 p.m. prior to the performance at the Hyatt.
