Watch: Highlights of Erev Rosh Hashana 5750

Watch: The second video in JEM’s ‘Highlights from 770’ series documents the evening and morning of 29 Elul 5749, Erev Rosh Hashana 5750 with the Rebbe.

Continuing with the Highlights from 770 series, JEM presents this special footage from the eve of Rosh Hashana 5750 (1989).

Eve of 29 Elul: The Rebbe joins Chassidim for the Ma’ariv services. Marking 200 years since the birth of the Tzemach Tzedek, the third Rebbe of Chabad, the Rebbe delivers a special address and distributes booklets containing the Tzemach Tzedek’s notes on the Tanya.

Day of 29 Elul: Selichos and Shacharis services. With the Days of Judgment approaching, the Rebbe accepts individuals’ petitions for blessing, as well as a “Public Petition,” co-signed by all Chassidim, with wishes of a sweet new year for Jews the world over.

The Rebbe and Chassidim then visit and pray at the resting place of the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson.
