Students, family and friends gathered Monday night in Crown Heights to mark the one-year yahrzeit of Rabbi Sholom Jacobson, with a farbrengen and siyum hashas.

Family and friends recalled Rabbi Jacobson’s dedication to disseminating the Rebbe‘s Torah. He was among the founders of Vaad L’hafotzas Sichos, which was created to prepare, publish and distribute the Rebbe’s sichos. For over four decades, he served as a member of the Vaad, doing his utmost to bring Likkutei Sichos and the other works of the Rebbe to the Chabad chassidim, and to the wider Jewish world.

When the Rebbe began encouraging the printing of Tanya in every location where Yidden live, Rabbi Jacobson took an active role in the printings, and was appointed to assign a number to each Tanya printed.
