Invitation - A very special Simchat Beit Hashoevah will be taking place during Chol HaMoed Sukot, under the sukah of the Chut Shel Chesed (Breslev) Yeshivah in Jerusalem.
Rabbi Shalom Arush, shlita, has once again invited Rabbi Ginsburgh, shlita, to take part in a Simchat Beit Hashoevah celebration together with Rabbi Arush.
This is an open public invitation for men and women (separately seated) to join them. The event will take place at the Chut Shel Chesed sukah, at 13 Shmuel Hanavi Street, Jerusalem, Monday night, September 23rd, 19 Tishrei, at around 8:00pm Israel time (1:00pm EDT).
There will be a class will be in Hebrew, with live video stream and English subtitles using this link. As with last year’s event, the celebration was scheduled to coincide close to the yahrzeit (day of passing) of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov on 18th Tishrei.
What’s a Chabad Mekubal (Kabbalist) rabbi doing hanging around with a Breslev Masphia & Tzadik? The friendship between the two rabbis began forty years ago, when Rabbi Arush came to study with Rabbi Ginsburgh. Since then, both rabbis have been busy spreading Torah and Chassidut, and establishing large organizations under their respective leaderships.
About two years ago, the rabbis met at the home of Rabbi Ginsburgh in Kfar Chabad. At the meeting, Rabbi Ginsburgh brought up memories of his first acquaintance with Rabbi Arush; “We were younger by almost forty years, so we walked here in the streets and talked about how to transform the world … how to inspire the world to return to God and His Torah.”
The class will feature musical intermissions, and includes separate seating arrangements for women in the yeshivah’s beit midrash. There they will be able to watch the event live on large video screens.
