Erev Yom Kippur - 5747

The Rebbe used to give a brocha to the Tmimim in the upstairs shul in 770 just before Kol Nidrei. It is a custom for fathers to bless their children on erev Yom Kippur and the Rebbe considered the bochrim to be his children. This was a not to be missed occasion and the room was packed to the rafters - quite literally.

This wonderful video came to me via Menachem K (see his blog of interesting stories of the Rebbe here).

Gmar Chasima Tova and have an easy fast.
