Large Crowd Joins Event Honoring the Rebbe in Washington State

A large crowd of attendees from all over Washington State attended this year’s sixth annual unity event, entitled “One People, One Heart – An Evening of Unity & Inspiration Commemorating the Teaching & Impact of the Lubavitcher Rebbe”. 

A large crowd of attendees from all over Washington State attended this year’s sixth annual unity event, entitled “One People, One Heart – An Evening of Unity & Inspiration Commemorating the Teaching & Impact of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.”

The event was presented & organized by the Shluchim of Washington State & created & directed by Rabbi Shmuly Levitin of Chabad of Downtown Seattle. 

The Master of Ceremonies was Chaya Kesselman of Chabad of Tacoma Washington. The Keynote Address was delivered by Rabbi Dov Greenberg an international speaker & Shliach to Stamford University who spoke about the Rebbe’s unique style of leadership and the lessons for our lives, Rabbi Mordechai Farkash Shliach to Bellevue Washington spoke about the Rebbe’s special approach in Torah learning and how it is expressed in how the Rebbe views the Modeh Ani prayer. 

A beautiful string quartet played four of the Nigunim the Rebbe taught, Tzoma, Darkecha, Hu Elokeinu & Anim Zmiros.

Two powerful JEM films were played, one opened the evening with the theme of Hakhel and the other was a miracle story of a couple that was blessed with a child later in life. 

The evening opened up with a pre-reception featuring a live sushi chef & open bar.

People were greatly impacted by the event.

It was great …the speakers were really inspiring

I’m renewing my intention to start each day with Modeh Ani

Inspiring as always! I’ll have to try and incorporate some of the ideas Rabbi Greenberg talked about in my daily life. The string quartet and the sushi were great additions to the event! 

Amazing! So glad we went! I said Modeh Ani with a little more intention this morning

I thought it was a tremendous success. Great speakers and the live music and singing were so beautiful. I felt like I was at a concert and then an inspired Ted talk through the Jewish lens. Many excellent and inspiring takeaways. The morning prayer was a powerful story. The three lessons through Jewish lens, It was wonderful to see so many new faces too. Very well done! Great evening!

Thank you. Very meaningful event last night.
