JOHANNESBURG, S. Africa [CHI] — “We must have this more often!”, “Rejuvenating!”, “Excellent!”, are just some of the reactions from the inspired attendees, last night at a “Farbrengen with the Rebbe” in South Africa.
Wednesday night, the Jewish community in Johannesburg joined at the Torah Academy Shul for an evening, featuring an unedited, yet subtitled video of a Yud Kislev Farbrengen with the Rebbe in 5741.
After a week of anticipation and study of the Rebbe’s words out of specially prepared booklets distributed to community members, the turnout was spectacular, and those present, about 85 men women and teenagers, where uplifted and inspired as well as energized by the Rebbe.
The program, organized by the Shul committee with the help of local Shluchim, lasted close to two hours, from 8:15 to 10:00 pm prompt, and the crowd watched three unedited Sichos, as well as the nigunnim and l’chaims from the Rebbe to individuals in between. Booklets with the Rebbe’s talk translated into english were at hand as well as, lehavdil, refreshments and l’chaim.
Special thanks to the Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim Haolami, for initiating this project for the Yeshivos, as well as preparing the material, with the help and dedication of JEM, and sharing this idea with communities worldwide.
