The days of Tes-Vav and Chai Elul were celebrated with great fanfare and excitement in Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati. Thursday night (15 Elul), the Talmidei Hashluchim arranged “chadaram-dancing” and a big Seuda, which was followed by farbrengens for each individual shiur with their Mashpia. The shturem continued with a special “seder hashkem” the next morning which included more dancing and farbrengen.
On Chai-Elul, the Yeshiva hosted Rabbi Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. Rabbi Rubashkin first spoke to the “Yaldei Tzivos Hashem” and the, separately to the local Nshei Chabad, and then led a Farbrengen in the Yeshiva. Many local anash and shluchim joined the Farbrengen. After the Farbrengen, some talmidim escorted Rabbi Rubashkin to the airport, where a special minyan was organized so that he could say Kaddish.
“The Talmidim were really inspired by the Farbrengen and took many hachlatos Tovos”, says Rabbi Gershon Avtzon, the Rosh Yeshiva. “The Yeshiva thanks Rabbi D. Sperlin for arranging the special trip.”
