In accordance with the Rebbe’s personal wish, Vaad Or Vechom Hahiskashrus will be sharing daily content related to the Rebbe’s father to help mark the day of Chof Av.
As early as Motzei Tisha b’Av, the Rebbe requested that Chassidim mark the special day of Chof Av, his father’s Yartzeit-Hilula, by learning the Torah of HoRav Levi Yitzchok, giving Tzedakah, and taking lessons from his life.
“The Shabbos following 15 B’Av is Chof Av, the Yahrtzeit and Hilula of my father Rav Levi Yitchok ben Boruch Schneur z”l – forty years now. I feel a responsibility as well as a privilege to suggest and request, etc, that all should learn together from his teachings, and contribute [tzedoka] on this day in his memory; For he devoted his life to spread Yiddishkeit among the Jews behind the Iron Curtain, resulting in his imprisonment and sentence in exile, where he perished and is now interred. May his merit protect us, amongst all of the Jewish people, Shlita.” – A letter from Motzei Tisha b’Av 5744
In accordance with the Rebbe’s personal wish, Or Vechom Hahsikashrus will be sharing daily insights into the incredible life and teachings of the Rebbe’s father over the next few days leading up to Chof Av.
