Farbrengen Purim, 5733 (1973)
Experience the spiritual joy and intellectual rigor of a Farbrengen with the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory.
Listen as the timeless truths of the Written Law, the Talmud, Kabbalah and Chasidism are applied to issues of contemporary social and ethical concern.
During pauses in the Yiddish talk, the thousands in attendance sing Chassidic melodies and the Rebbe greets them with blessings of L’Chaim!
To experience a Farbrengen is to glimpse the unity of higher and lower worlds, a meeting of the Divine and the human, the mystical and the mundane, the timely and the timeless.

The Book of Esther is a chronicle of Divinely orchestrated “role-reversals” – where villains unwittingly plot their own downfalls and helpless victims become glorious victors. In this spirit, the Rebbe investigates various aspects of the Purim story that at first glance appear “out of character”:
Why do we invoke G-d’s Holy Name before reading the Megillah, only to begin the story with an in-depth description of King Achashverosh’s drunken extravagance?
The entire plot surrounds the experiences of Mordechai. Why then is the Megillah named after someone else?
And of all the Jewish holidays, Purim is the only one that did not celebrate the Jews’ freedom from subjugation to a foreign ruler. So what is all the extra joy about?
This special release includes the four and a half hours of extant footage of the event. Four of the major addresses are presented with subtitles.
