In Final Preparation, Bochurim Relive First Farbrengen

The Vaad Hatmimim’s new ‘Iberleben’ program has Bochurim is Yeshivas across America learning and reliving the Farbrengens of the Rebbe. 

Over the past two weeks, the Bochurim have been learning and reliving the Farbrengen of Yud Shevat 5711 in honor of 70 years. 

The Farbrengens will also be shown at tonight’s annual Kinus Hatmimim where 7 different Mashpi’im will speak about the Farbrengen and how it’s relevant to each Bochur today.

During and after the learning of the Farbrengen the Bochurim had the opportunity to hear from a Mashpia or a Chossid which was present at that specific farbrengen who shared with them his own feelings and memories, to attempt to recapture the experience of that particular Farbrengen.

The program has been initiated in a few select Mesivtos during the past month and will be launched and available for all Mesivtos and Yeshivas around America starting Yud Shevat. The “Iberliben” program provides booklets with translation of uncommon words and explanations when needed on the selected Farbrengen in order to ease the learning of the Farbrengen.

“This will help transform the farbrengen- in a young bochur’s mind- from merely words on a page to a dynamic reality and live experience,” the organizers said.

The Vaad Hatmimim is led with dedication by Rabbi Tzvi Altein, together with the ‘iberliben’ organizers Mendel Banon and Sholem Kalmenson. Special thanks to Rabbi Yossi Lew for editing the weekly booklet and to Zelig Katzman, Yossi Katz, Moishie Caytak, and Elchonon Perlstein for their assistance.
