Hey Teves Farbrengen

There will be a farbrengen in honor of Hey Teves this Tuesday night, December 18, following the 9:30 PM Maariv minyan at Tzemach Tzedek.

The fifth day of Teves is celebrated as a day of rejoicing in the Chabad-Lubavitch community because on this date in 1987, U.S. Federal Court issued a decision in favor of Agudas Chassidei Chabad regarding the ownership of the priceless library of the 6th Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn. 

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 Lubavitcher Rebbe (Rabbi Yoseph Yitzchak's son-in-law and successor) urged that the occasion be marked with time devoted to study from sefarim as well as the acquisition of new Torah books.
