Shluchim, anash and bochurim gathered in 770 Thursday night for a Gimmel Tammuz Farbrengen.
This years farbrengen was markedly different than other years, with many changes due to the coronavirus pandemic. With many guests choosing to not to come this year, the crowd was distinctly smaller than the usual.
The difference was also seen with the refreshments handed out. Sitting on the tables were small bottles of water and individually wrapped cookies, instead of the usual salads, herring and kugels.
Among the speakers was Crown Heights mechanech Rabbi Chaim Levi Goldstein who recently recovered from coronavirus. Rabbi Goldstein spoke about the great miracles he experienced and sang his now-famous composition ‘I believe in Hashem’.
Other speakers included Harav Yosef Braun of the Crown Heights Beis Din, Rabbi Yankel Chazan, Rabbi Shlomo Majeski and Rabbi Michoel Golomb.
