Yud Tes Kislev 5772
The Day of Liberation of the Alter Rebbe, the First Rebbe of Chabad
To All Anash, Sheyichu:
I am writing this letter with a Hatzo’o -- a suggestion in connection with the Yom HaBohir
Hey Teves, the day of Didon Notzach, which this year falls on Shabbos Kodesh Vayigash.
My proposition and suggestion is that we dedicate the Motzoi Shabbos of Shabbos Vayigash to make as many Melaveh Malkahs as possible everywhere in the world in the Zechus of our dear friend and colleague, Sholom Mordechai ben Rivkah, HaLevi, that he should have his own day of liberation, a Geulah Shelaymah, with a complete Didon Notzach.
I do not have to tell you that Melaveh Malkah, the Seudah of Dovid Malkoh Meshicho, is a very auspicious time to be Me’Orer Rachamim Rabim. I am sure you aware that Reb Sholom Mordechai always took great pains to make a beautiful Melaveh Malkah and invite many people. This is one of his special Mitzvos which will certainly stand him in good stead.
I am suggesting that we make Melaveh Malkahs in our shuls, in our Botei Chabad, and in our homes. I am asking everybody to please accept the idea and to let as many people as possible know about the idea. May HaKodesh Baruch Hu hear our prayers and, “Terem Nikro v’Ani E’eneh” – He should answer us even before we call out to Him with a true and complete Didon Notzach – with Moshiach Tzidkeinu, now, MAMOSH.
I am asking everyone to please forward the information in this letter to as many people as possible. Don’t worry if somebody will get many emails. Vechol HaMarbe Harei Zeh Meshuboch. Please let me know what you are doing. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
