The group of guests was led by shluchim Rabbis Yanky Klein, Avraham Grozman, Zalman Shimon Deren of Moscow, Rabbi Shimon Bergman of Nizhny Novgorod. They were joined by philanthropist R’ Lev Leviev.

After a full Shabbos of learning, davening and farbrenging, the groups sat down for another farbengen Motzei Shabbos as preparation for Selichos.

Following the farbrengen, the groups headed over to the newly-rebuilt shul near the Ohel of the Tzemach Tzedek and Rebbe Maharash. The shul, which had been in use when the town of Lubavitch was the headquarters of Chabad Chassidus, was destroyed during World War II, and was rebuilt recently.

The entire Shabbos and Selichos was organized and hosted by Rabbi Gavriel Gordon, the energetic and dynamic shliach who is responsible for the preservation and development of the holy places in the town of Lubavitch and all activities in the town.

All of the restoration projects in Lubavitch are fully sponsored by the noted philanthropists Yossi and Batshevah Popack through the efforts of the askan Mendel Levin and Geder Avos.
