Hundreds of bochurim gathered with Crown Heights locals and guests in the home of Reb Yoel Kahn near 770 on Thursday night, for a farbrengen marking the end of shiva.
Reb Yoel served as the Rebbe‘s chief chozer, recording and transcribing the Rebbe’s sichos and ma’amarim. In his role as the head mashpia in 770, and later through his classes and works, he taught Chassidus to tens of thousands. Many of the prominent Chabad mashpi’im of the day count him as their foremost teacher.
Joining the farbrengen were hundreds of Crown Heights residents who studied under Reb Yoel, alongside current 770 bochurim and members of the hanhala of 770 yeshiva, fellow chozrim, mashpi’im and rabbonim.
Leading the farbengen were Rabbi Leibel Altein, Rabbi Shlomo Zarchi, Rabbi Nachman Schapiro, Rabbi Sholom Charitonow, Rabbi Chaim Shaul Brook and others.
A full recording of the farbrengen will be posted on Anash.org later this week.
