Thousands of Jewish Teens Gather in Times Square For Havdalah

Thousands of Jewish Teens Gather in Times Square For Havdalah

Thousands of Jewish teens gathered in Times Square for a special havdalah ceremony. This ceremony shows off Jewish pride and unity; featuring a meaningful inspiration and an exhilarating concert led by performer Benny Friedman. 

Havdalah is a Jewish religious ceremony that marks the symbolic end of Shabbat and ushers in the new week. The ritual involves lighting a special havdalah candle with several wicks, blessing a cup of wine and smelling sweet spices. Shabbat ends on Saturday night after the appearance of three stars in the sky.

The event was held by Rabbi Shimon Rivkin, director of CTeen and Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Chairman of CTeen. A highlight of the event was a video of the Rebbe’s Farbrengen in 770 and singing of “Tzomah Lecha Nafshi,” which claimed the energy and the air of Times Square.

Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky told the group “You are not the future leaders of the Jewish people. You are the leaders of today!”
