Also participating and speaking were Harav Betzalel Wettenstein, rov of the Belz community in Monsey, Rabbi Efraim Piekarski, mashpia in the yeshiva in Morristown, and Rabbi Moshe Gourarie, editor of Chassidus Mevueres and mashpia in Pomona.
The participants also enjoyed live music, with niggunim being sung by the Rabin brothers, and a sale on sifrei Chassidus with prices subsidized by Heichal Menachem.
