A personality such as Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Segal is an instant crown draw and his latest visit to Montreal was no different.
His Canadian admirers came early to get a good seat at a Chai Elul Farbrengen organized by Heichal Menachem. And they listened until the wee hours of the morning.
It was not the first visit ot the dean of Kollel Tzemach Tzedek in the old city of Jerusalem.
Three years ago he graced the city with an inspirational Farbrengen in Honor of 19 Kislev.
The gathering this past Motzoei Shabbos was held in honor of the birthday of the two Chasidic masters – the Baal Shem Tov and Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi.
Several noted rabbis also attended: Rabbi Yochanan Vozner, Rov of Skver in Montreal; Rabbi Shimon Ligeti, Rosh Kollel of Skver; Rabbi Levi Roth, Belzer Dayan; Rabbi Yosef Unsdorfer, Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta Yam Hatalmud and Rabbi Dovber Bell, Lubavitch Dayan.
Participants said they felt elevated and took upon themselves ‘Hachlotos Tovos’ in order to strengthen Torah study in the community.
As COLlive reported, Rabbi Segal inspired the Chabad community in a Shabbos Afternoon Farbrengen in the main Yeshiva Shul.
