    Letter from 5695

    The letter from the Frierdiker Rebbe from 5695, instructing to Farbreng Shabbos Mivorchim, proceeds this story. so i think its inaccurate to say this story is “how the Shabbos Mevorchim Kiddush custom got started”. maybe it got reinvigorated on u.s soil after this story.either way its a great story. just the title is a bit misleading.

    Interesting. Correction though: I think you meant to write “precedes” instead of “proceeds”.

    Where the Friediker Rebbe stayed in Morristown

    the place that the Friediker Rebbe stayed in Morristown is now a county community center. On occasion the yeshiva visits the spot to commemorate the Friediker Rebbes visit!
