Rabbi Yosef Segal, one of the most known Chabad Mashpiim in Israel, was the guest of the Lubavitch community in Montreal, Canada.
The Rosh Kollel Tzemach Tzedek in the Old City of Jerusalem was warmly greeted by congregants at the Yeshiva Shul in the Snowdon neighbourhood.
On Shabbos day, Rabbi Segal led a Chasidic Farbrengen in honor of Chai Elul, the birthday of the Baal Shem Tov and the Alter Rebbe.
The Farbrengen also commemorated the yahrtzeit of R’ Leibel Ceitlin OBM, a stalwart of the community and champion of Chasidic education.
R’ Yomtov Lison, a Gabbai of the shul, brought to the Farbgengen a 1971 bottle of Seagram’s VO whisky used by Ceitlin, his father-in-law.
Among the participants were Rabbi Moshe Eliyahu Gerlitzky, one of the nine Shluchim the Previous Rebbe sent to the city, and Rabbi Berel Mochkin, Director of Lubavitch Youth Organization.
In his remarks, Rabbi Segal pointed out the importance of the Shabbos meal for whole family.
