Crown Heights women gathered for the 2nd annual auction on February 23rd at Lubavitcher yeshiva, benefiting the Rebbe’s Mivtzoim. Upon registering, Each participant received a pouch with some Mivtzoim material and a beautiful card explaining the idea of ‘”Mivtzoim on the go’”.Wherever one goes one should always have some material to give to another Jew to awaken the Pintele Yid within.
Mrs. Chana Marozow, head of the Mivtzoim Committee, gave the women insight into its history and how it all began with those women who waited to receive the Rebbe’s dollar every Sunday. From once a week it grew to an amazing organization where women go out on Mivtzoim to a different venues on a daily basis. The Mivtzoim committee is on the forefront, bringing us one step closer to Moshiach ever day.
The event was chaired by Mrs. Yehudis Cohen.
The ambiance was warm with beautiful Niggunim played by Chaya Simonitz.
