Over 200 Chassidim attended a Farbrengen in the shul of the Bishtane Rebbe in Israel in honor of Yud Tes Kislev.
Held every year, it marks the liberation of the Alter Rebbe from Czarist imprisonment and the disseminating of Chassidic teachings.
The Bishtane Rebbe traditionally quotes from the Tanya and other Chabad works and hands out L’Chaims from Benedictine Liqueur.
This year’s event was also addressed by Rabbi Shmuel Heber of Crown Heights, a businessman and talmid chacham.
Daled Bavos, the Chassidic niggun related to the Alter Rebbe, was sung with much delight and concentration.
