In honor of the Chag Hageulah of the Mitteler Rebbe, whose very life was Chassidus, a Father and Son Chassidus program was held in the United Lubavitcher Yeshiva-Crown Street for the 7th and 8th grades.
In the morning, fathers came with their sons to learn a Maamar Chassidus and Daven Shachris together. Upon conclusion of the Chassidus learning, Rabbi Yosef Simpson delivered an overview of the Maamar adding clarity and emphasizing the practical aspects of the Maamar.
After Shachris everyone got together for a lavish Farbrengen/breakfast.
The Farbrengen was emceed by Rabbi Wilschanski. The parents joined the Talmidim for the spirited singing of Niggunim which ended in spontaneous dancing. Hatomim Levi Nelken lead the Tehillim, a Dvar Torah was recited by Hatomim Shmuly Wudowsky. Rabbi Moshe Schapiro, one of the parents and Shliach of the Rebbe in Hoboken, NJ, inspired the crowd with stories and important lessons for the Talmidim and their parents.
It was immensely uplifting to see the smiles on the Talmidim’s faces having the opportunity to spend time with their fathers in their Yeshiva on this special day.
A special thank you is due to Rabbi Wilschanski and Rabbi Yossi Langsam for arranging this special event.
