About Rabbi Garelik:
Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Garelik was born and raised in Milan, Italy, where his parents were sent by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 1958. He served as spiritual leader of Lubavitch Congregation in Boston and as a Rabbinic coordinator for OK Kosher. Currently, Rabbi Garelik serves as spiritual leader of the European Synagogue, right across the EU, in Brussels, and lectures extensively around the world.

Rabbi Garelik has edited many halachik works, including the highly acclaimed "Kitzur Dinei Tahara," and his “Guide” vol.1 (lifecycles) and “Guide” vol. 2 (Aveilus).

About Yud Tes Kislev:
On the 19th of Kislev of the year 5559 from creation (1798), Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi - a leading disciple of Rabbi DovBer of Mezeritch and the founder of Chabad Chassidism - was released from his imprisonment in the Peter-Paul fortress in Petersburg, where he was held for 53 days on charges that his teachings threatened the imperial authority of the Czar.

More than a personal liberation, this was a watershed event in the history of Chassidism heralding a new era in the revelation of the inner soul of Torah, and is celebrated to this day as "The Rosh Hashanah of Chassidism."
