Last week Sunday, members and supporters of the JEM Foundation from around the world gathered in New York City for the inaugural JEM Foundation International Gala. Watch one of the special, beautiful video presentations that were produced and shown at the gala.
JEM’s mission is to share the Rebbe’s teachings and inspiration with the world through video, audio and photography.
At the gala, a presentation was prepared, entitled, “Three Pioneers”; which showcased the early days work of recording and broadcasting the Rebbe.
The clip features Rabbis Aharon Goldstein, Chaim Boruch Halberstam, and Hillel Dovid Krinsky, all three pioneers in the proliferation of the Rebbe’s message.
Rabbi Goldstein’s father, Rabbi Yosef Goldstein recorded the farbrengens and talks in the early 50s and 60s. Rabbi Halberstam founded and directed WLCC, which, beginning in 1970, broadcast the Rebbe’s public addresses around the world to over 600 locations live via telephone. And Rabbi Krinsky founded JEM, which facilitated the broadcast of the Rebbe’s addresses live via satellite, and on cable television.
