When the Scharf Brothers Didn't Receive Cake

An incredible story for 27 Adar 5752, the day the Lubavitcher Rebbe ZY"A suffered a stroke while davening at his father in law, the Rebbe Rayatz's Ohel.

After their father’s passing in 5750 (1989), the Rebbe ‘adopted’ the four siblings of the Scharf family, showering the young orphans with attention and affection. Before each weekly Farbrengen, the Rebbe would give a piece of his cake to the Scharf boys. Shabbos Parshas Vayakheil, 25 Adar-Aleph, 5752, the Rebbe suddenly stopped this custom. At the time, the boys were heartbroken, but they were left with a strong, powerful and encouraging message.

"The Scharf Family" A short film featuring a story of loss and empowerment. On its debut at the 2022 JEM Foundation Gala on 2 Tammuz, 5782 - June 30, 2022, the film was accompanied by a soul stirring live performance by the world-renowned musician Naor Carmi, who composed a special arrangement of Chasidic Nigunim to accompany the film.
