The Chof Av Rally Which The Rebbe Watched Live
In connection with Chof Av, the 75th yahrtzeit of the Rebbe’s father, RebbeDrive presents new footage documenting the unique Chof Av children’s rally in 5752. As is customary, the entire Gan Yisroel Parksville traveled to New York, to be with the Rebbe on Chof Av. As it was just months after Chof Zayin Adar, the children weren’t Zoiche to see the Rebbe as usual. However, while the children gathered in 770 for the rally, a video screen was set up in the Rebbe’s room, and the Rebbe watched the entire rally live. Head Counselor Yerachmeal Jacobson emceed the recital of the Rebbe’s Kapitel, and the twelve Pesukim, followed by “We want Moshiach now” and the Rebbe’s father’s Niggun. Rabbi Sholom Baras spoke about the importance of Hiskashrus to the Rebbe, especially at this time. Head Counselor Yossi Chodakov spoke emotionally how the Rebbe is definitely with us, however we must still demand to see the Rebbe Gezunt once more. The campers then all sang together the new song ‘with a Tehilim’, followed by Sisu V’simchu B’simchas Ha’Geulah, and ‘Harabi Shlita’. Camper Yossi Hecht then gave the Rebbe a Bracha in the name of all the campers. After the rally, the entire camp stood outside the Rebbe’s room and sung ‘With a Tehillim’ and ‘Oirech Yomim.
