Record 52 Yeshivos to Join ‘An Hour With the Rebbe’

See the numbers: A record 52 yeshivos will be joining ‘An Hour With the Rebbe’ on Yud Shvat. Which yeshivos are they, and how many bochurim are in each one?

The Chabad-Lubavitch community is seeing exponential growth, as evidenced by the record number of 52 (!) yeshivos joining the ‘Hour with the Rebbe’ program this Wednesday on Yud Shvat.

The event, which has been taking place annually for the last ten years, will take place from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM at 770 Eastern Parkway, where a special presentation of a video of the Rebbe will be watched.

An hour with the Rebbe began in 5773 with several hundred bochurim from six different Yeshivos. As Lubavitch around the world grew, so did the crowd at 770 grow from year to year. This year, a Hakhel year, close to 4,000 Bochurim are expected from 52 Yeshivos, a historical record.

“This is an amazing program in which the Bochurim get to feel a sliver of what we had when we saw the Rebbe in 770,” one member of anash shared with us. “It’s very important that everyone should come. I was there and I had tears in my eyes to see bochurim that never saw the Rebbe. May we see the Rebbe now!”

“I remember as a young Bochur being there and feeling very inspired,” said a shliach, today in California. “It gives me energy until today.”

As we prepare to enter the 73 years of the Rebbe’s leadership, ‘An Hour With the Rebbe’ is a true testament to “Every single year, [The Rebbe] becomes more alive, stronger and more active.”

May we be zoche to the hisgalus and celebrate Yud Shvat this year with the Rebbe, kohol gadol yashuvu heina.

An Hour with the Rebbe is being organized this year by a dedicated team of Bochurim including Mendy Hirsh, Mendel Malek, Mendel Braun, Mendel Mintz, Mendel Greisman, Yossi Rosenblum, Menachem Farkash, Moishy Golomb, Shmuly Cunin, Meir Avtzon and Sholom Trauig.

An Hour with the Rebbe is made possible by the generous contributions of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Gutnik, Moshe Yitzchak Cohen, Kamin Health CH Urgent Care – proud to be the #1 choice for bochurim healthcare, Rabbi Chanina Sperlin and the Crown Funding Group.
