The event began with the recital of the Rebbe’s Twelve Pesukim by children of Tzivot Hashem. Rabbi Yeshayah Elazar Cohen, Chief Rabbi and head shliach of Kazakhstan, then addressed the crowd.
Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Mordechai Cohen was then invited to recite the Rebbe’s chapter of Tehillim verse by verse with the crowd. Our correspondent, who was present at the event, made some notes and we decided to share them in the exact format that he wrote them:
“Moments of joy … the crowd is dancing with much happiness, with boundless joy. It only stops when the emcee announces a raffle for a ticket to the holy courtyard of LubavitchShebeLubavitch. This brings us to a very emotional moment, when we hear the dramatic announcement by emcee Rabbi Elchanan Cohen of two happy winners – Yaakov Yeroshov and women’s representative Marina Michaelova. There’s an enchanting moment during the artistic part of the evening, when a very skilled artist demonstrates his amazing skills to the crowd.”
Towards the end of the evening, everyone heard a very inspiring talk by Rabbi BetzalelLifschitz before making good resolutions to strengthen themselves in Torah and mitzvahs.
Even the children didn’t leave the event empty-handed. Each one received a flag for Simchat Torah, which they prepared with shlichaMina Leah Liberow.
