Chassidim and bochurim sat together at the main shul in 770 Eastern Parkway last week to mark the day when the Rebbe returned home after the 1977 heart-attack.
The annual Rosh Chodesh Kislev farbrengen was organized by Rabbi Meir Harlig, a Crown Heights resident who served as a Mashbak of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
He recalled the day when, for the first time since suffering a major heart-attack 5 weeks earlier, the Rebbe left 770 and returned to his home, signaling his recovery.
Rabbi Harlig described how chassidim all over rejoiced at the good news and how from that day on, the Rebbe redoubled his efforts on behalf of the Jewish nation and all of humanity, and for the dissemination of Torah and chassidus.
Among the speakers were Rabbi Sholom Ber Groner from South Africa and Dr. Robert Feldman, who was part of the medical team that treated the Rebbe.
Participants then joined in singing the niggun known as the "Rosh Chodesh Kislev march."
