The practice of meditation and introspection are central elements of hassidism in general, and the Chabad persuasion in particular. The latter also incorporates plenty of joyous activities, many of which revolve around music. It follows, therefore, that a member of the Chabad community should be instrumental in establishing the annual Kislev 19 gathering, a five-day festival that marries traditional Chabad melodies or nigunim with artists across the spectrum of Judaism.

The fourth edition of the festival, the date of which marks an important event in the annals of hassidism, will take place at the Jerusalem International Conference Center from December 3-7. Kislev 19 is the date on which Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liady, the founder of the Chabad branch of hassidism and the first Lubavitcher rebbe, was released from prison in November 1798.
