Seventy Years Later: Children to Watch and Learn From the Rebbe

In honor of Yud Shvat, Connection Point has launched an exciting two-week program for students to experience the Rebbe’ inaugural farbrengen of Yud Shvat 1951 (5711).

Connection Point, the collaborative initiative of JEM and Tzivos Hashem aimed at teaching students to watch and learn directly from the Rebbe, has launched a stand-alone two-week program in honor of Yud Shvat.

“The schedule for Connection Point was to do one round before Chanukah and the next before Purim,” explained Rabbi Levi Plotkin, Connection Point director. “But with Yud Shvat approaching, we knew we had to do something. We are going to empower students to hear directly from the Rebbe so that they too can experience and appreciate the watershed moment when the Rebbe accepted the mantle of leadership.” 

Unique to this program is a special presentation created by JEM this year that focuses on the backstory of that historic farbrengen, as told by people who were there. The presentation even has special kid-friendly narration created for the Connection Point program

The Yud Shvat program will run over two weeks. The first week the children will watch a part of the sicha, and the second week, similar to The Real Rally, students will watch a full forty-five-minute video of the Rebbe. The new presentation will be played at that second-week event.
