Machon Chana invites women and girls to a Vov Tishrei gathering in honor of the yahrtzeit-hiluloh of the Rebbe’s mother, Rebbetzin Chana a’h. Various speakers will share their memories and lessons from the Rebbetzin’s life and legacy.
The gathering will take place at Beis Levi Yitzchok, 556 Crown St. at 7:00 pm
The program will begin with a video of the Rebbe. Mrs. Sara Labkowski will speak about “Rebbetzin Chana’s Legacy.” Rabbi Levke Kaplan will address “The Rebbe’s Reflections,” and Mrs. Sara Katzman will share “My Memories with the Rebbetzin in Poking.”
Machon Chana Choir will provide a musical interlude before Mrs. Esther Sternberg shares “My Special Relationaship with Rebbetzin Chana.” She will relate examples of the extraordinary kesher and love of the Rebbe towards Machon Chana and its students, “mein Mammeh“’s school and techter.
Participants will have a chance to try their hand at ink making, experiencing a slight taste of what Rebbetzin Chana went through when she famously prepared ink so that her husband, R’ Levi Yitzchok, could write his Torah thoughts while in exile.
Light refreshments will be served.
Machon Chana is proud to bear the name of the Rebbe’s mother.
The Rebbe felt that an appropriate way to honor and eternalize his beloved mother’s memory was to open a school for young women with scant or no knowledge of Yiddishkeit and call it in her name. Machon Chana today has tens of thousands of alumnae, many of whom built beautiful Jewish homes, with some of their children running Chabad centers and schools around the world.
