The five hour event will be released in two segments: the first in honor of Gimmel Tammuz, and the second with the approach of Yud Beis Tammuz.
This black and white video, one of the first Farbrengens ever filmed, was a landmark Farbrengen. With thousands of young people crammed into 770 to hear the Rebbe’s words, the Rebbe laid out his vision regarding the task and mission he placed on the young. Using powerful lessons from the self-sacrifice of the Previous Rebbe, the Rebbe speaks about the endless potential of the youth and demonstrates how they can literally change the world.
The Rebbe also dwells on the inherent potential that lies in the thousands of new immigrants arriving from the Soviet Union, and honors one young man, the newly arrived Chazan Tzatzkes, to lead the crowd in a joyful repertoire of Russian niggunim. Later in the Farbrengen, the Rebbe distributes Mashke to whoever established an institution in honor of the Rebbe’s seventieth birthday, and declares the “tikun” for whoever did not: to establish two new institutions instead.
