The Rubashkin asifas hodaah scheduled for tonight in Lakewood has been postponed for logistical reasons. Organizers are working on rescheduling the event for sometime next week.
L’chaims were made worldwide last night as Klal Yisrael celebrated the amazing news that President Trump had commuted R’ Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin’s sentence.
People gathered in the thousands in Monsey, Brooklyn and Crown Heights to greet R’ Sholom Mordechai and to witness the nes Chanukah in person. In Lakewood, hundreds of people danced in Seagull Square, eager to join in the simcha even if they could not be there in person. The unity shown by all of Klal Yisrael was truly a sight to behold.
For Lakewood residents who wish to continue partaking in this joyous occasion, R’ Sholom Mordechai will be arriving tonight to celebrate with the Lakewood community in person. Askanim have worked tirelessly and were able to rent out Lake Terrace Hall to host tonight’s event, which will take place at 8:30 tonight.
R’ Sholom Mordechai will be speaking, along with others.
Divrei chizuk will be delivered by Rav Aryeh Malkiel Kotler and Rav Yeruchem Olshin.
The event chairman will be Rabbi Pinchos Lipschutz.
Zemiros will be led by Shloime Daskal.
