Hey Teves Farbrengen

This Monday night, December 21, there will be a farbrengen with Rabbi Lesches in honor of Hey Teves following the 9:30 PM Maariv minyan at K'hal Tzemach Tzedek.

On Hey Teves in 1987, a U.S. Federal Court issued a decision in favor of Agudas Chassidei Chabad regarding the ownership of the priceless library of the Frierdeker Rebbe. The ruling was based on the idea that a Rebbe is not a private individual but a communal figure synonymous with the body of Chassidim. The Rebbe urged that the occasion be marked with time devoted to study of Torah books as well as the acquisition of new sefarim.
