Celebrations in Ruzhin - Boyan


One of the sons of the Boyaner Rebbe got married this Tuesday, and therefore, the group is celebrating the traditional "Sheva Berachot". Every night, for the following seven days after the wedding, the new couple is invited at different places for dinner.

Tomorrow night, Friday (Erev Shabbat), public Sheva Berachot are taking place in the great Boyaner Synagogue in Ge'ulah (Jerusalem). The celebration is due to start at 11.30pm. The following day, the Boyaner Rebbe is having a chassidic Tish at the third Shabbat meal (Se'udat Shlishit). I couldn't find out if there will be food for the women as well.

Ruzhin - Boyan has a custom celebrating the Rebbe's Tish at different times. The Tish is always taking place at the Shabbat before Rosh Chodesh (the beginning of the new Jewish month). During the summer months at the Se'udat Shlishit and during the winter months on Erev Shabbat (Friday night).

At the beginning of next week, I am going to meet someone from Boyan and ask him further details. If you have any questions, just let me know and I will ask him.
