As per the Rebbe's directives, we devote this issue of the YG connection to a summary of our Chanukah activities.


"Those who perform Mitzvos should be publicized through printed reports and photos ... by Yud Shevat - the Hilulah of the Frierdiker Rebbe!"

(Free Translation of the Rebbe's address on the 8th night of Chanukah, 5746)


"It is a Mitzvah to publicize those who do Mitzvos. Especially, as our Sages explain 'If Reuven would only know what Hashem writes about him...' Publicizing such deeds encourages and adds excitement in all of these activities. Therefore, it is appropriate that photos of the Chanukah activities be sent in - in order to publicize them in print!"

(Free Translation of the Rebbe's address on the 6th night of Chanukah, 5747)
