As we approach twenty-five years since Gimmel Tammuz, a new project, V’eleh Shemos – Menachem Mendel, aims to collect all those with the name Menachem Mendel and feature them in a special album.
In honor of twenty-five years since Gimmel Tammuz, a large-scale worldwide campaign was launched. The goal of the project, V’eleh Shemos – Menachem Mendel, is to unite all those who were named in honor of the Rebbe, and carry the name Menachem Mendel.
In honor of the Rebbetzin’s second yahrtzeit (on 22 Shevat 5750), N’shei Ubnos Chabad published a unique album titled “Kol Yemei Chayeha,” featuring the names and pictures of all those who had been given her name since her passing. The Rebbe derived much nachas ruach from this album.
The current project is based on this precedent—to collect the names and pictures of all those who were given the Rebbe’s name during the past twenty-five years, since 3 Tammuz 5754.
A new website was launched this week for this purpose, where anyone with the name Menachem Mendel, or who has given his son this name (in full or in part), can take part. Simply enter the name and location and upload a picture. You can also share stories connected to the child’s birth or name-calling. The site is open to anyone across the world, and requires no fee.
The thousands of names and pictures of those who proudly carry the Rebbe’s name will be featured in an attractive album, which will be published in honor of Gimmel Tammuz 5779.
