Good Yom Tov

I just came upon this film of the Rebbe from Motzoei Shavuos in 5720 (1960). It seems it was released for the Laufer-Nemanov wedding almost a year ago.

While today we are used to seeing every minute of famous people's lives recorded and publicised this film would have been extremely unusual at that time. It was obviously taken by a handheld camera and the quality is not particularly good but it clearly shows a youthful Rebbe distributing Kos Shel Brocha. The latter 2 minutes of the film shows the Rebbe davening in the upstairs Zal in 770 and also distributing Lekach from his room.

Wishing you all a Good Yom Tov and Kabbolas Hatorah Besimcha U’vpnimiyus.
