Over 200 Bochurim, Shluchim and Anash joined the central Farbrengen near the Rebbe’s Ohel to celebrate the Rebbe and Rebbetzin’s 95th wedding anniversary.
The in-person Farbrengen was held at the Ohel and streamed live at Chabad.org/OrVechom and on COLlive.com.
The Farbrengen, organized by Vaad Or Vechom Hahiskashrus, was addressed by Rabbi Ben Tzion Krasnianski, Chabad Upper East Side, and Rabbi Shmuly Avtzon, Mashpia in 770, and was emceed by Rabbi Mendel Danow, Chabad Pensacola FL.
The formal program led into lively dancing and Farbrengens deep into the night.
On Yud Daled Kislev 5739 (1978), the 50th anniversary the Rebbe started the Farbrengen by saying that it is the custom in this and other countries that: In the day of an anniversary, family and friends gather to celebrate and rejoice together… This Farbrengen is a great opportunity for every family to join with chassidim from around the world in celebrating this special day.
