Bringing the art of true farbrengen to crowds that wouldn’t know how to farbreng otherwise. Teaching Chassidus through a game makes people so much more open to receiving the soul nourishing messages of chassidus. This game is Bringing the א into גולה.

So out of the box and had to be created by a real chosid! Peretz Chein you’re living up to your great ancestors who were of the original true chassidim. This game will do great IYH. Hatzlacha!

I just read Rabbi Chein’s Pedagogy of Farbrengen and my favorite line is when he writes: “Farbrengens, where the speaker showcases oratory skills, knowledge of Chassidic concepts and stories, or personal anecdotes, is a failed leader, and will unlikely inspire others to share and practice listening. One of the common pitfalls is to Rebbeflex (my term), where speakers share stories of the Rebbe they uniquely know of, or that they or their ancestors experienced, flexing their connection to Rebbe but devoid of their Avoda Pnimis.”
I recommend reading it in its entirety.

The fabregen culture at Brandeis is not only alive and well, but is geshmak! This game is a testament to a remarkably vibrant shlichus.

I read Rabbi Chein’s paper and this struck me:
“Farbrengens, where the speaker showcases oratory skills, knowledge of Chassidic concepts and stories, or personal anecdotes, is a failed leader, and will unlikely inspire others to share and practice listening. One of the common pitfalls is to Rebbeflex (my term), where speakers share stories of the Rebbe they uniquely know of, or that they or their ancestors experienced, flexing their connection to Rebbe but devoid of their Avoda Pnimis.”

Brilliant!!
