Over 150 men and women gathered in Monsey, NY, to mark Gimmel Tammuz with guest speaker Rabbi Isser Zalmen Weisberg.
The event was held at Khal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch.
The Farbrengen started with Master of Ceremonies Rabbi Yossi Krasnianski and Rabbi Boruch D. Lesches Mara D’asra of Tzemach Tzedek.
He was then followed by the guest speaker, Rabbi Isser Zalman Weisberg of Lakewood, NJ, who recounted his journey to Chabad from the Litvishe Torah world.
Rabbi Weisberg spoke about his tremendous hakoras hatov to the Rebbe who personally guided and encouraged him on a regular basis for many years until he fully developed his learning and writing skills to present the Rebbe’s Torah in prestigious Torah publications. He concluded by sharing his perspective on the Rebbe’s famous directive to bring Moshiach by using oros detohu bekeilim detikkun.
The gimmel tammuz event was organized by ‘Anash of Monsey’ headed by Rabbi Zalmen L. Markowitz and R’ Yona Abenson.
The Farbrengen would not have been made possible without the assistance of Hirshel Rosenbluh, Mendy Glick, Mendel Sandhouse and other anonymous people that greatly assisted in putting the event together. A special thanks goes to Shmuli Niasoff for putting together the audio and visual.
