As Yud Shevat is fast approaching, thousands of Bochrim are preparing their journey to Crown Heights, to be with the Rebbe on this auspicious day.
One of the highlight programs of the Bochrim’s stay, will be the annual ‘hour with the Rebbe’.
On Wednesday evening, Yud Shevat, an hour-long video of the Rebbe will be shown. The video includes a collection of Sichos and Nigginim connected to Yud Shevat, Hiskashrus, and Moshiach.
Participating Yeshivos include: Baltimore, Chicago, Chovevei Torah, Cincinnati, Coral Springs, Los Angeles, Miami – Torah Or, Monsey, Montreal, Morristown, New Haven, Oholei Torah, Pittsburgh, Poconos, Postville, Queens, Toronto, Tzfas – Tzeirei Hashluchim and Westchester.
This year, due to the large amount of Bochurim attending, huge bleachers are being rented, to accommodate everyone.
“Years ago, when everyone came in for Yud Shevat, the highlight was always the Rebbe’s Farbrengen,” said Shaye Wolfson, one of the event organizers. “This year we hope to have that same highlight, and hopefully, with the Rebbe’s Hisgalus,” he said.
The event will also be streamed live on COLlive.com, for those unable to attend.
The organizers hope that we will indeed merit to a Farbrengen with the Rebbe Kipshuto, with the coming of Moshiach now!
