A Chassidic Farbrengin, celebrating the 19th of Kislev. Joined by singer Benny Friedman and Nemuel Harosh. Conducted by Mona Rosenblum. Tuesday night, Kfar Chabad, Israel.
The 19th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev is celebrated as the “Rosh Hashanah of Chassidism.” It was on this date, in the year 5559 (1798), that the founder of Chabad Chassidism, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi (known as the Baal HaTanaya and Alter Rebbe) (1745–1812), was freed from his imprisonment in czarist Russia. The 19th of Kislev therefore symbolizes the victory of the Chassidic movement, especially of Chabad, which since then began to take root and spread throughout the Jewish world. Read More Here.
Singing "Podo V'sholom" (Tehilim, 55) Composed by the Chasidim of Rabbi Dovber of Lubavitch, the Mitteler Rebbe. Podo V'sholom is the traditional melody sung by the Lubavitcher Chassidim each year at their farbrengen on the 19th of Kislev. The Baal Hatanya writes that it was during praying the Pesukim of this Perek Tehillim that he was freed.
