Gimmel Tammuz, being a time when all Chabad Chasidim go to the Rebbe’s Ohel, many Lubavitchers meet up with others they haven’t seen in some time.
For one group of friends, meeting on Gimmel Tammuz wasn’t something that happened by chance, rather it was a long-ago planned reunion of the 8th grade of Oholei Torah of the year 5748/1988.
At the home of classmate Mordechai Shapiro, Shluchim and businessmen, all former classmates, gathered to reunite and farbreng, in the merit of the complete and speedy recovery of their dear friend Levi Yitzchok Deitsch ben Tzirel.
Rabbi Faitel Levin, their 8th grade teacher, joined the gathering of young men, to share memories, reminisce and inspire.
Speakers included Mordechai Shapiro, Nechemia Deitsch, Rabbi Levin, Moishe Shapiro, Aaron Isaac Benjaminson and the class’ favorite principal Rabbi Sholom Ber Halberstam.
A beautiful slide show presentation which included memories, photos and favorite slogans was shown.
After the prepared schedule a spontaneous Farbrengen began, which went on until 3:00 am.
This event was organized by Meir Geisinsky and friends.
