Chai Elul Kiddush & Farbrengen

Friday, 31 August, 2007 - 10:56 am

This Shabbos, Parshas Ki Savo, there will be a kiddush and farbrengen in honor of Chai Elul at Chabad Lubavitch Center after davening at 10 am.

"Chai Elul" (Hebrew for "the 18th of Elul," also meaning "the life of Elul") is celebrated by the Chassidic community as the birthday of the "two great luminaries" -- Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Chassidism; and Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad. Chassidim wish each other "Gut Yom Tov!" and conduct joyous gatherings called farbrengens.
