Just in time for the upcoming month of Tishrei, a magnificent album has just been released entitled “Yemai Bracha.”
It includes the personal diaries of Chabad Historian Rabbi Eliezer Zaklikovsky, Shliach in Monroe, NJ, of Tishrei 5752, in the court of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the last Tishrei before the Rebbe suffered a debilitating stroke, the last Tishrei he was in full vigor.
This last Tishrei turned out to be a very special one indeed, highlighted by almost daily interactions with the many thousands of Chassidim and guests from around the world who came to celebrate with the Rebbe, as the Rebbe showered endless blessings through the various distributions, talks, and encounters with men, women and children throughout Tishrei, hence the name Yemei Bracha – Days of blessing.
The diaries chronicle in great detail the daily happenings by the Rebbe during the entire 30 days of the month of Tishrei 5752, including public appearances, Davening, Farbrengens, Sichos, distribution of dollars, Lekach, Kos shel Bracha, personal anecdotes, customs during Yomim Tovim, and more.
The diaries were meticulously kept by the then Yeshiva Bochur who had the opportunity to spend every day of Tishrei near the Rebbe, up-close, and to bear witness to these extraordinary events as they unfolded. They are being published for the very first time.
The album includes dozens of photographs and manuscripts that give an eye opening glimpse of the daily happenings during that Tishrei and bring the diaries to life as a picture is worth more than a thousand words.
The album, in large 8.5X11, 4 color format, is available in a limited supply at the Kehot showroom.
