In preparation for Yud Tes Kislev – the Rosh Hashana of Chassidus, Rabbi Sholom Ber Schapiro, Director of the Nissan Mindel Publications (NMP), will present a special episode of “Historic Treasures.”
The show will feature a unique program in honor of this special day – based on the correspondence of the Rebbe, includes the following important ideas:
Yud Tes Kislev is referred to as Chag Hachaggim/the Holiday of Holidays – why?
A Jew is obligated, according to Halachah, to learn chasidus – how is this so?
The last topic of Tanya, the Torah she’b’ksav of chasidus (the learning of which we complete on Yud Tes Kislev)- is about not speaking during davening. What does the Rebbe say about this?
Each program shares ‘treasures’ from the archives of Rabbi Schapiro’s father in law, Rabbi Dr. Nissan Mindel OBM, a prolific writer who served as a personal secretary of the 6th and 7th Chabad Rebbes.
The program uncovers fascinating stories, rare artifacts and precious documents from the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.
