A Shabbos Achdus organized by the Bais Shmuel Congregation took place Friday night in Oholei Torah hall in Crown Heights.
Over 1,000 men and women packed into the main ballroom for a farbrengen and evening of inspiration which went on until 1:00 am.
MC Dudi Farkash, gabbai of Bais Shmuel, introduced speakers Rabbi Simon Jacobson and Rabbi Levi Eisenberg, brother-in-law of Shliach Levi Deitsch obm, who recently passed away.
“The feeling in the room was indescribable,” Farkash told COLlive. “So many different types of people from our neighborhood, sitting side by side, singing nigunim together – it was an amazing, inspiring, moment.”
The crowd sang nigunim such as Ani Maamin and Padah B’Sholom together, and were moved by Eisenberg’s words about his brother in law Levi Deitsch.
“Levi never thought of himself,” Eisenberg said. “His entire life he was worried about others, even in his last days.”
Rabbi YY Jacobson, Rabbi of Bais Shmuel, was the final speaker of the evening.
“Since the Rebbe’s farbrengens, I have never been so touched by a farbrengen,” one participant told COLlive. “We felt as though Moshiach would come right then.”
