    Over 200 American Bochurim gathered for a sumptuous Melava Malka in Getzel Shul, in honor on this year’s Shnas Hakhel. Before long, however, the ‘official’ event spiraled into a lively Farbrengen with Mashpia Reb Pinye Korf • Full Story, Photos

    Not often can one observe the hundreds of post-Shlichus American 770 Bochurim gathered under one roof, but that is exactly what happened in Crown Heights, on Motzei Shabbos.

    Over 200 English-speaking Bochurim, who are currently learning in Tomchei Temimim Lubavitch Hamerkozis -770, gathered for a sumptuous Melava Malka in the basement of their 1414 dormitory, otherwise known as Getzel Shul, in honor on this year’s Shnas Hakhel. A hot buffet, lavish spreads and delectable deserts were in abundance, as the Bochurim sat together in what can only be described as the legendary ‘love between Chassidim’; the joyful singing, Farbrenging, and inspiring one another in a spirit of true unity left all participants feeling uplifted and reenergized.

    The event opened with a video of the Rebbe, first of a Sicha, and then of distributing dollars, in which the Rebbe demands and encourages Chassidim to ‘Shturem’ about Hakhel.

    Emceeing the event was 770 Meishiv Rabbi Yisroel Noach Raitchik, who honored Hatomim Bentzhe Bluming to conduct a Siyum on the Rambam’s Hilchos Sanhedrin.

    The night’s guest speaker followed, with Rabbi Shmuel Butman, Head of Tzach, giving a rousing lecture explaining the Rebbe’s transformation of Hakhel from a Mitzva on the King to arrange a once-a-year event in which not every Yid participated, into a year-long event in which every Yid ought to participate. Rabbi Butman expounded on the idea that Hakhel is, in truth, a synonym for Moshiach, which is the Rebbe’s mission statement all along.

    Before long, however, the ‘official’ event spiraled into a lively Farbrengen with the Mashpia Reb Pinye Korf, who conveyed with his usual charm the wonders of Chassidim of yore, how they coped in the war years, their utter devotion to the Rebbe, and how Modern America should not impede upon those lofty ideals; for the contrary is true, those can thrive in every condition. Also in attendance was 770 Mashgiach R’ Levi Klyne.

    The event was coordinated and arranged by a dedicated group of Bochurim, who worked with the administration of 1414 and the Hanhala of 770 to bring about this spectacular success.
