Zionist Yeshiva Students Mark Chabad Celebration


Hasidism and Zionism met in a huge Jerusalem event commemorating the emancipation of the first Lubavicher Rebbe from the Russian prison on the 19th of Kislev. The day is commemorated with festive Chabad celebrations, and in this case, by 1,200 yeshiva students who took a written exam on the book authored by the Rebbe, the Tanya. Most of the participants belonged to Zionist yeshivas. Joyous dancing followed the exam. Here are the video and images.
