In honor of Shabbos Yud Shevat, a special tent was erected at the Ohel of the Rebbe in Queens, New York, to accommodate the large number of Mesivta bochurim who were visiting to celebrate 74 years of the Rebbe’s Nesius.
The tent, which was sponsored by a group of generous donors, and facilitated by the Vaad Hatmimim, was large enough to accommodate hundreds of bochurim and was equipped with comfortable seating and heating.
The special tent provided a comfortable and welcoming environment for the bochurim who traveled from their respective Mesivtos to the Ohel from Shabbos. Having a designated area to daven, farbrengen, and learn enhanced their experience and allowed them to focus purely on spending time at the Ohel.
In addition to the tent, several other special arrangements were made for the bochurim who visited the Ohel for Shabbos Yud Shevat. These included:
- Special Farbrengens were held on Friday night and Shabbos day for bochurim.
- Sedorim were held throughout Shabbos in the tent.
- A seder Niggunim was held on Shabbos with hundreds of Bochurim participating.
The Vaad Hatmimim would like to thank Rabbi Berel Lazar for making this beautiful initiative possible.
Special thanks to the staff at Ohel Chabad Lubavitch and Rabbi Abba Refson.
