On Motzei Rosh Chodesh Kislev the central Farbrengen and Seudas Hodoah took place at the Ohel in honor of forty years to the Rebbe’s recovery from a heart attack in 5738/1977 with the participation of hundreds of Anash, Shluchim and bochurim.
Anash and tmimim were joined by hundreds of shluchim who came in on special transportation provided by the Vaad Hakinus directly from the Kinus Hashluchim Banquet which took place in New Jersey.
The crowds were addressed by Rabbi Yossi Groner, Rabbi Shlomo Zarchi and Rabbi Tzvi Grunblat who shared their memories of the events and the lessons we can apply from them in our present situation after Gimmel Tammuz.
Serving as MC was Reb Meir Harlig who spearheaded the central celebration of Rosh Chodesh Kislev in 770 from their inception in the early 5740’s.
Following the formal part of the Farbrengen Rabbi Yisroel Deren and Rabbi Tzvi Grunblat farbrenged together with many other Shluchim into the morning.
