Resource Site Marks 35 Years Since Chof Beis Shevat

In preparation for Chof Beis Shevat, the 35th Yahrzeit-Hilula of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, Vaad Or Vechom present several useful resources to assist you and your family in preparing for and marking this special day.

In under a week, we will be marking 35 years from the Rebbetzin’s Yahrzeit-Hilula. 

In the period following the Rebbetzin’s Histalkus, it became clear from the Rebbe’s words to us how central a place the Rebbetzin held in the Rebbe’s Nesius. Over the years following the Rebbetzin’s Histalkus, the Rebbe marked this day together with the Chassidim and continuously encouraged us to learn from the Rebbetzin.

With this in mind, Vaad Or Vechom Hahiskashrus is pleased to share several useful resources to assist you and your family in preparing for and marking this special day.
