A special kinus hisorerous and evening of Chassidus study marked the yahrzeit of Reb Yoel Kahn a”h, the Rebbe’s choizer and foremost teacher of Chassidus in the generation.
Marking his one-year yahrzeit, an event was held in Boro Park, where Reb Yoel spent countless hours giving shiurim and spreading the light of Chassidus. The event memorialized his life and his work, which was totally given over to learning, teaching and spreading Chassidus.
Addressing the event was Rabbi Sholom Charitonov, mashpia in Oholei Torah and close student and colleague of Reb Yoel. Reb Sholom shared stories and memories from Reb Yoel’s life and work over the decades they worked side-by-side.
The event was also addressed by Rabbi Nosson Gurary, longtime shliach to Buffalo, New York, and currently a mashpia in Yeshivas Tomchei Tmimim of Nyack, New York; and Rabbi Leibel Altein, head of Heichal Menachem Boro Park, both prominent students of Reb Yoel.
The kinus hisorerous was streamed live, exclusively on Anash.org, to allow the countless students of Reb Yoel to take part from afar. Watch a replay below.
