Every Motzei Shabbos, immediately following the weekly video of the Rebbe, a group of Crown Heights residents sit down for a customary melava malka and hear uplifting Chasidishe stories.
The melava malka takes place at Beis Menachem Mendel Shul at 770 Lefferts Avenue. Now in its fifteenth year, the weekly Melava Malka is one of Crown Heights’s best-kept secrets.
The melava malka is led by Rabbi Nachman Yosef Twerski, a noted Maggid Shiur in Mesivta Oholei Torah and acclaimed Mechanech in Crown Heights.
Rabbi Twerski shares uplifting Chasidishe stories following the famous Chasidic custom of telling stories of tzadikim on Motzei Shabbos as a Segula for Parnassa.
“All men and bochurim from Crown Heights are invited to come and join,” organizers said. “The melave malka is a great way to start off your new week.”
The melave malka takes place every Motzei Shabbos at Beis Menachem Mendel. Milchig refreshments are served. The event begins with a video of the Rebbe, followed by the chassidishe stories, told in Hebrew.
Summer time: 10:30-11:45 PM.
