Magazine offers ‘Inside Story’ of the Rebbe’s birthday celebrations

Monday, 10 April, 2023 - 10:07 am


Yud-Aleph Nissan, the Rebbe’s birthday, is a Yom Tov celebrated annually by Yidden of all backgrounds, and even by non-Jewish government leaders. But despite the uniqueness of Yud-Aleph Nissan as a Yom Tov that the Rebbe himself celebrated and shared with the Chassidim, the history of the Yom Tov though, has never been properly documented.

Was Yud-Aleph Nissan always celebrated by Chassidim? What was the Rebbe’s response to the Chassidim’s excitement? How did the various aspects of Yud-Aleph Nissan – from Yud-Aleph Nissan niggunim to Education Day – evolve?

In the fully colored 140-page, “Kulo Orah” magazine the answer to all these questions are described in detail.

The magazine opens with a spread on the ruchniyusdike significance of Yud-Aleph Nissan, as explained by the Rebbe in many Sichos.

The next chapter is dedicated to the birth of the Yom Tov, beginning from the Rebbe’s birth in 5662, the Rebbe’s Bar Mitzvah in 5675, until the first Yud-Aleph Nissan farbrengen that Chassidim celebrated with the Rebbe’s attendance in Paris, 5707.

The Yud-Aleph Nissan milestone year celebrations are described at length in the next articles: from the Maamar the Rebbe delivered for a select few on his 50th birthday in 5712, to the Tanya distribution in 5742. The magazine also features new pictures (assumingly) of the farbrengen of 5722, the Rebbe’s 60th birthday.

Extensive overviews of the Rebbe’s appreciation for Yud-Aleph Nissan guests, the Yud-Aleph Nissan niggunim, the special farbrengens attended by great Rabbonim and influential politicians, Yud-Aleph Nissan chalukos, the brocha Chassidim would give the Rebbe – and the Rebbe’s response – are covered in the magazine, as well as much more.

The “Kulo Orah” magazine features rare and unique pictures of the Rebbe from JEM’s The Living Archive, as well as kisvei yad kodesh of the Rebbe and interesting documents and pictures illustrating and bringing to life these precious Yud-Aleph Nissan moments in the Rebbe’s presence.

The magazine, which was published in honor of Yud-Aleph Nissan 120 years, was redesigned and republished again this year with many additions and was sold in 770 and at the Ohel on Yud-Aleph Nissan.

A sample of several pages from the beautiful magazine can be seen below:
