Yud Aleph Nissan Farbrengen

Wednesday, 30 March, 2016 - 9:38 am

This Tuesday, April 19, marks the birthday of The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory. Please join us at 8:30 pm (after Maariv) for a farbrengen, a gathering of souls, to commemorate this auspicious day.

Born in the Ukrainian-Russian town of Nikolaev in 1902, the Rebbe spent the century's and his childhood in pogrom-ridden Czarist Russia, the 20's battling the Stalinist attempt to eradicate Jewish life in the Soviet Empire, the 30's in Berlin and Paris. In 1941 he escaped Nazi-occupied Europe and settled in New York, where for the next 50 years he transformed the very fabric of Jewish life in every corner of the globe. 

Annually the President of the United States designates Education and Sharing Day U.S.A. on the anniversary of the birth of the Rebbe who dedicated his life to the cause of education. During his lifetime, the Rebbe worked to reconcile secularism and man's enduring need for a religious philosophy and moral values by which to live. And today, Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries across the globe, inspired by the Rebbe's vision, continue this vital work.
