Continuing with our Highlights from 770 series, we present this special footage from the night following Rosh Hashana in 1989 and the fast of Gedaliah.
The second in the Highlights from 770 series from JEM presents video clips of Erev Rosh Hashanah in the Rebbe’s presence. 29 Elul 5749 marked 200 years since the birth of the Tzemach Tzedek, which the Rebbe marked by distributing a special booklet of the Tzemach Tzedek’s notes on Tanya.
I was among those selected to work on this project, and – together with my friend Rabbi Zusha Winner – was put in charge of making the index of the subjects covered in all of the 146 discourses. After we handed in the first batch of entries, the Rebbe congratulated us, saying that our indexing method “gives an orderly and positive impression.” He urged us to continue to work as fast as possible but not to sacrifice quality.
A series of videos published by JEM will document the festive month of Tishrei 5750 (1989) in the Rebbe’s presence at 770. Highlights from 770 will be released throughout the coming weeks, and will feature curated video highlights of the special moments of Tishrei, including newly released content.
