A pre-Selichos farbrengen which takes place annually in Crown Heights will be streamed live online again in this Hakhel year.
Chasidim have a Minhag to Farbreng in the hours leading up to Selichos, and so each year, for over 35 years, Rabbi Sholom Charitonov has led a Farbrengen on the Motzei Shabbos of Selichos.
The Farbrengen takes place at the home of R’ Michoel Slavin in Crown Heights, which is located a few doors away from 770, at 754 Eastern Parkway.
Following the Farbrengen, participants head over to 770 Eastern Parkway for the reciting of the first Selichos.
By popular demand, the farbrengen will be streamed live on COLlive.com for the worldwide Chabad community to participate.
The Farbrengen will begin at 10:15 PM ET on Motzei Shabbos until 12:45 PM, when Selichos will be recited in 770 Eastern Parkway.
