The Lincoln Place Shul in northern Crown Heights will hold a grand farbrengen led by Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, to mark the day the center of Chabad Chassidus was transferred onto American soil.
In honor of Tes Adar, the Lincoln Place Shul and Beis Hamedrash in northern Crown Heights will hold a grand farbrengen led by Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Vice-Chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch.
The farbrengen will take place at 1185 Lincoln Place, Brooklyn, NY 11213 at 8:00 PM, with a seudas mitzva catered by Mendy’s caterers and local restaurants
Tes Adar is the day the Frierdiker Rebbe disembarked at the New York harbor after a miraculous rescue from Nazi-occupied Poland. On this day, the center of Chabad Chassidus was transferred onto American soil.
At a farbrengen on Tes Adar 5750 (1990), the Rebbe said: “It is proper that Chassidic farbrengens should be held in connection with Tes Adar, continuing in the subsequent days, including Shabbos and Purim. In particular, this applies here in Brooklyn, the “capital” of the Frierdiker Rebbe, where he lived for the final ten years of his life. Holiness does not move from its place; on the contrary, it becomes increased from year to year, particularly this year, the fortieth year after the Frierdiker Rebbe’s passing, the year when ‘a person attains full grasp of his teacher’s wisdom.’”
The Lincoln Place Shul and Beis Hamedrash is a vibrant shul in North Crown Heights led by Rabbi Meyer Shushan, with 3 Tefilos a day and programs for men women and children throughout the year.
