(Courtesy of Bris Avrohom) On Sunday evening, at the Bris Avrohom Center, a special Yud Tes Kislev farbrengen was held. It is customary to celebrate that date, as it is known by Lubavitch as the new year of chasidus. The celebration commemorates the yahrtzeit of the Mezritcher Maggid, as well as the liberation of the first Lubavitcher Rebbe, R’ Shneur Zalman of Liadi, author of the Tanya and the Shulchan Aruch HaRav, who was imprisoned in Petersburg, Russia, for spreading chasidus.

Rabbi Manis Friedman, world-renowned author and lecturer, was the guest speaker at the event. In a most dynamic, captivating and clever manner, Rabbi Friedman explained the importance of learning chasidus daily, and how doing so gives a person a deeper understanding of Torah.

Close to 200 people were in attendance, and they were all mesmerized by his words, which began at 8 p.m. and ended at midnight. His words were interspersed with bursts of song, particularly the unique song for Yud Tes Kislev, Pada Beshalom Nafshi, stirring words from Tehillim Chapter 55.

The evening concluded with many people purchasing Rabbi Friedman’s newest book, “Creating a Life That Matters,” which he autographed.

At the farbrengen, a festive dinner was served with lots of l’chaims.

Rabbi Mordechai Kanelsky expresses thanks to Rabbi Avremy Kanelsky for organizing the event, and to Mr. Shabsi Zakheim and Mendy Kanelsky for preparing the beautiful dinner.
