For the first time in 107 years, a full-scale Pesach was held in the town of Lubavitch, the former headquarters of Chabad Chassidus.

On Friday, Erev Yomtov, dozens of Jews from the surrounding areas arrived in Lubavitch to celebrate the two sedorim. Guests were hosted at the newly built Lubavitch Hospitality houses.

During the days of Chol Hamoed, nearly 500 people visited the town of Lubavitch to tour the holy sites and daven by the Ohel of the Tzemach Tzedek and Rebbe Maharash.

The entire Yom Tov was organized and hosted by Rabbi Gavriel Gordon, the energetic and dynamic shliach who is responsible for the preservation and development of the holy places in the town of Lubavitch and all activities in the town.

Rabbi Gordon thanked Chief Rabbi and Head Shliach to Russia Rabbi Berel Lazar, Rabbi Yitzchok Kogan, member of Aguch of Russia, and shliach Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Mondshine, for all their assistance in making Pesach possible.
