Hundreds of Bochurim and Yungerliet joined the central Fabrengen of Merkaz Letoras Hachassidus held in the Eden hall, in the heart of Stamford Hill.
The fabrengen was opened with Mashpia Rabbi Mendel Gordon, who spoke about the meaning of Chassidus and being a chossid to us today. The Fabrengen continued with the guest speaker and Mashpia Rabbi Yossi Paltiel, who fabrenged for many hours on the idea of darkei hachassidus and its’ necessity and relevance to every Yid today,
Rabbi Paltiel fabrenged with his unique style, woven with stories and anecdotes from the Rebbeim and Chassidim throughout the generations.
A number of Rabbonim and Roshei Yeshivos attended, including: Rabbi Eliayu Brief, Dayan in Keddasya Beis Din and head of the monetary department; Rabbi Mordchai Duvid Weiss, Rov of the Oiraysa community; Rabbi Usher Shapiro, son of the Naroler Rebbe and director of the Kol Bonayich institute, who grew up in Crown heights and is a childhood friend of Rabbi Paltiel.
Several other Fabrengens took place throughout Yud Tes Kislev, including Rab Zalmen Heizler who led Fabrengens in the Merkaz on Thursday night and Friday night, and a fabrengen in the Yeshiva Gevohah of London, who invited Rabbi Mendel Gordon to speak in honor of Yud Tes Kislev on Thursday.
Many of the participants also join the ongoing Shiurim and Fabrengens held in the Merkaz throughout the year.
These farbrengens were organized by Rabbi Avremel Raskin of Merkaz Letoras Hachassidus – London.
The Chabad House of the neighboring town of Westcliff – led by Rabbi Tzvi Birnhak – hosted London speaker Rabbi Meir Sarfati come to speak and farbreng throughout Shabbos, both on Friday night and Shabbos day, to the delight of the many locals.
