The 19th of Kislev marks the liberation of Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the Alter Rebbe, from Czarist prison.
What does the release of the Alter Rebbe from prison in 1798 have to do with your life today? Or your non-Jewish neighbor’s?
Through several marathon addresses, the Rebbe reaches back through Jewish histor y identifying key moments in our spiritual evolution as a people, to answer two fundamental questions:
What is the significance of Yud Tes Kislev as we enter into the 21st Century? What does it all mean for me – as a private individual, and a citizen of the world?
This special release includes the entire five hour event. Five of the major addresses are presented with subtitles.
Experience the spiritual joy and intellectual rigor of a Farbrengen with the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.
Listen as the timeless truths of the Written Law, the Talmud, Kabbalah and Chasidism are applied to issues of contemporary social and ethical concern.
During pauses in the Yiddish talk, the thousands in attendance sing Chassidic melodies and the Rebbe greets them with blessings of L’Chaim!
To experience a Farbrengen is to glimpse the unity of higher and lower worlds, a meeting of the Divine and the human, the mystical and the mundane, the timely and the timeless.
