A Melava Malka and farbrengen was held last Motzei Shabbos at the Montreal Yeshiva in honor of the fourth Yahrtzeit of Reb Volf Greenglass OBM, “the Rebbe’s Mekubal,” on 22 Teves.
Among the speakers were Rosh yeshiva Rabbi Kaplan, who stressed how Rabbi Greenglas would always demand from the students to learn mamarim by heart as a preparation before the 10th of Shevat.
The Mashpia Rabbi Isaac Gurary stressed the importance of Mivtzoim, especially Mivtza Mezuza, as a Shmira in our present time.
Rabbi Gurary also launched a mivtza of learning by heart as a preparation for Yud Shevat, with prizes of Seforim sponsored by the Greenglass family.
Rabbi Alexander Blau, a Rosh yeshiva from Chasidei Square, told a few stories from the Alter Rebbe, the Kapitshsner Rebbe and Reb Volf.
Rabbi Dovid Cohen, son in law of Reb Volf, spoke about how a Chasid can be mekushar to the Rebbe and write a letter (pan) with his thoughts, telling the famous story of Reb Mendel Futerfas.
Videos were shown of the Rebbe and Reb Volf at a Farbrengen.
The family informed that recently there have been requests to republish the stories of Rabbi Greenglass, but this time in English.
