Members of the Jewish community of Rostov, acting as delegates of the Jewish people, traveled to the Rebbe Rashab’s Ohel on Bais Nissan, the Rebbe’s Yartzeit, to pray for world Jewry.
With the uncertainty in Ukraine, rising anti-semitism in Europe, and the global pressure on Israel to make concessions, attendees shared earnest prayers for the welfare of Yidden everywhere.
Members of the Rostov Jewish community, led by head shliach Rabbi Chaim Danzinger and shliach Rabbi Shmuel Stolin, commemorated the yarzeit of the Rebbe Rashab on Bais Nissan with a variety of events.
The day began with a special event at the Jewish Ohr Avner day school, where students heard a fascinating lecture about the importance of the special day. The youth club had their own event for Bais Nissan, and after learning about the significance of the day and the connection of the Rebbe Rashab to the Rostov Jewish community, they joined in a moving prayer at the Ohel.
The inspiration continued with a gathering of men, women and students in Rostov’s famous Cantonist shul to hear a famous lecturer, Rabbi DovBer Baitman from Dnepropetrovsk.
Special guests from around the world flew in especially to participate in the event.
