Thanks to a generous grant from Dovid and Malkie Smetana, in honor of Yud-Alef Nissan, the Rebbe’s 110th birthday, JEM’s My Encounter with the Rebbe team has built a studio to conduct interviews about the Rebbe’s interactions with individuals.
A recent interview in our new studio with Rabbi Moishe Goldman.
Since the studio was set up last week, interviews have been occurring around the clock, night and day. The Smetanas, another anonymous donor, and the My Encounter team were moved to take this step due to the pressing need to interview thousands of people – in particular “the older generation”– about their encounters and stories with the Rebbe before they are lost forever. The new studio allows them to conduct many more interviews now at shorter advance notice, and lower cost.
Their focus now is to interview local people living in the Crown Heights area or in the greater NY metropolitan area who they can bring into the studio. Sometimes, it’s a race against time.
You can help! You know someone that had an interesting experience or encounter with the Rebbe. Whether it is a parent, grandparent, an uncle, aunt, neighbor, business associates, or a cab driver. Let us know of it, so we can share it to the world!
