Monday, December 31, 2012 Yechidus Recording -- The Rebbe Tells a Story
As we approach the Alter Rebbe’s 200th yahrzeit, which falls on Sunday, 24 Teves, a new clip has been released of the Rebbe speaking in a private audience with supporters of Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim.
The recording is included in a special new DVD by JEM marking this special date. Rabbi Sholom Yisroel Hodakov generously provided access to the unique Yechidus recording in honor of this milestone.
Fifty years ago 5723 – marking 150 years from the passing of the Alter Rebbe – the Rebbe urged chasidim to mark the auspicious year by adding in Torah studies and tzedaka.
Time and again throughout that year, the Rebbe discussed this idea, requesting that each and every chosid add in their own way, and especially through studying, printing and disseminating the teachings of the Alter Rebbe.
JEM's special new DVD features a compilation of stories, sichos, niggunim and moments with the Rebbe, related to the Alter Rebbe – "with the hope that it will serve as an impetus to mark this momentous occasion through increased action in the Alter Rebbe’s ways."
