In time for Yud-Aleph Nissan, the Rebbe’s 120th birthday, an unprecedented full-color Hebrew magazine was published by the Vaad Hatmimim, chronicling the Yom Tov of Yud Aleph Nissan in the Rebbe’s presence. Order a limited edition copy.
Yud-Aleph Nissan, the Rebbe’s birthday, is a Yom Tov celebrated annually by Yidden of all backgrounds, and even by non-Jewish government leaders. But despite the uniqueness of Yud-Aleph Nissan as a Yom Tov that the Rebbe himself celebrated and shared with the Chassidim, the history of the Yom Tov though, has never been properly documented.
Was Yud-Aleph Nissan always celebrated by Chassidim? What was the Rebbe’s response to the Chassidim’s excitement? How did the various aspects of Yud-Aleph Nissan – from Yud-Aleph Nissan niggunim to Education Day – evolve?
In the new fully colored 120 page “כולו אורה” magazine all these details are described in detail.
The magazine opens with a spread on the ruchniyusdike depth of Yud-Aleph Nissan, as explained by the Rebbe in many Sichos.
The next chapter is dedicated to the birth of the Yom Tov, beginning from the Rebbe’s birth in 5662, to the Rebbe’s Bar Mitzvah in 5675, until the first Yud-Aleph Nissan farbrengen that Chassidim celebrated with the Rebbe’s attendance in Paris, 5707.
The Yud-Aleph Nissan milestone year celebrations are described at length in the next articles: from the Maamar the Rebbe delivered for a select few on his 50th birthday in 5712, to the massive Mitzvah Tank parades in 5752. The magazine also features new pictures (seemingly) of the farbrengen of 5722, the Rebbe’s 60th birthday.
Extensive overviews of the Rebbe’s appreciation for Yud-Aleph Nissan guests, the Yud-Aleph Nissan niggunim, the special farbrengens attended by great Rabbonim and influential politicians, Yud-Aleph Nissan chalukos, the brocha Chassidim would give the Rebbe – and the Rebbe’s response – are covered in the magazine, as well as much more.
The “כולו אורה” magazine features rare and unique pictures of the Rebbe from JEM’s The Living Archive, as well as kisvei yad kodesh of the Rebbe and interesting documents and pictures illustrating and bringing to life these precious Yud-Aleph Nissan moments in the Rebbe’s presence.
The magazine, which was published in honor of Yud-Aleph Nissan, quickly sold out. Due to the many requests, the magazine will be printed again in the next few days. Order a copy before Shabbos, 6 Iyar, for around just $10 (final price will be confirmed after printing) here: https://forms.gle/t9xkqxDTuKCjVdaC6
