- Program Description
Description from WGBH press release of the day: “ You are invited to a Hasidic wedding in Lubavitch the third in the series Religious America. Lubavitch presents a sensual picture of the Chabad Lubavitch community, a mystical, orthodox sect of Judaism that developed in Russia about 180 years ago. This group still flourishes today, in the heart of America’s largest city. The wedding, a bris (the ritual religious rite celebrating the birth of a male child), a ‘fabrengen’ (gathering in the synagogue), and sights of bearded men in long black coats walking the streets of a busy section of Brooklyn all swirl together to make a pattern you’ll long remember. Lubavitch is a picture of a people who maintain a religious, cultural and ethical life, apart from their community, but plunked right in the heart of a busy, metropolitan city.”
Filmed in Brooklyn, NY. Participants: Rabbi Menachem Schneerson; and Leibel Bistriksky.
