N’shei Ubnos Chabad in Crown Heights hosted a packed crowd this past Motzoei Shabbos at a Melava Malka at United Lubavitcher Yeshiva.
It was held to commemorate Rosh Chodesh Kislev, the date in 1977 when the Rebbe returned home after suffering a major heart attack five weeks earlier, on the eve of Shemini Atzeres.
One of the people on the medical team that treated the Rebbe was Dr. Ira Weiss of Chicago and was a guest speaker at the women’s gathering.
While he focused on the medical aspect of the time, other speakers like California Shliach Rabbi Baruch Y. Hecht related how from then, the Rebbe redoubled his efforts on behalf of the Jewish nation and all of humanity, and for the dissemination of Torah and chassidism.
The evening’s chairperson was Mrs. Chanie Wolf. Musical entertainment was provided by Mrs. Suri Levilev.
