Monsey Community Preparing for 20th Anniversary of Gimmel Tammuz

With the 20th anniversary of Gimmel Tammuz approaching, Anash communities around the world are preparing to mark this auspicious day and strengthen their hiskashrus with the Rebbe.

On behalf of all the Lubavitch shuls and Chabad mosdos in the greater Monsey community, we are happy to announce that our community, in a tremendous spirit of achdus, is getting ready as well with the following exciting, meaningful projects and events.

JLI Paradigm Shift Course 
Transformational Life Teachings of the Rebbe

In honor of Gimmel Tammuz a new course called Paradigm Shift is being released by the popular Jewish Learning Institute (JLI).

The course, which was developed with the input of over 40 prominent Shluchim, Mashpiim, and secretaries of the Rebbe, presents the Rebbe’s Torah and revolutionary outlook on life into six lessons allowing students to gain a comprehensive grasp of the Rebbe’s unique and refreshing position and approach to Torah, Yidishkeit and life in general.

We are delighted to bring a portion of this course to the Monsey community as a way to learn the Rebbe’s Torah in preparation for Gimmel Tammuz. The first two classes will be taught prior to Gimmel Tammuz by the co-author of the course, Rabbi Naftali Silberberg, a renowned teacher and lecturer and co-director of JLI’s Curriculum Department.

The two classes for men will take place on:
  • Sunday, 17 Sivan, June 15, at 8:00 PM
  • Sunday, 24 Sivan, June 22, at 8:00 PM
The subsidized cost for both classes, which includes a workbook, is $36. The location of the classes will be announced to those who register closer to the time.

Kovetz / Compilation of Torah Learning

There is no better way to strengthen ones Yiddishkeit and hiskashrus than by learning Torah. As such, a kovetz (compilation) with a variety of Niglah and Chassidus, was put together to be studied in preparation for Gimmel Tammuz.

There is both Hebrew and English material included and it was specifically designed so that men, women and children can be a part of this project. You can choose to participate by attending a shiur, learning with your family, Chavrusa, students or by yourself.

A special thanks to Rabbi Dovid Oberlander, Director of Heichal Menachem of Monsey, for his help in compiling and printing this Kovetz.

Community Gimmel Tammuz Farbrengen

Men and women are invited to join in a community farbrengen in honor of Gimmel Tammuz. We are honored to have Rabbi Shmuel Lew of London, England farbreng with our community. The farbrengen will take place on Sunday, Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, June 29, at 8:00 PM in the main shul (upstairs) in Tzemach Tzedek.

In a letter from the Rebbe before Yud Shvat the Rebbe writes "מסוגל הוא היום הזה להתקשר לעץ החיים". This is an auspicious day to connect to the tree of life. Let us unite together to uplift ourselves, our families and the entire community and connect with the Rebbe.

May we be Zoche to greet the Rebbe very soon with the coming of Moshiach תיכף ומיד ממש.
