Parshas P’kudei is the culmination of Seifer Shmos. In the Hakhel year of 5748 there was a special siyum seifer Torah that took place in 770 that week. It was a seifer Torah donated by shluchim around the world, in honor of the memory of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka who had just passed away the previous month. During the Farbrengen on Shabbos, the Rebbe spoke of the significance of the Siyum Seifer Torah and connected it to the year of Hakhel.
Last week, the ancient Tzemach Tzedek Synagogue in Tzfas held a joyous celebration after its six precious Torah scrolls, stolen the previous Shabbos, were miraculously discovered in an abandoned house. Together with the happiness of the occasion, this marked an appropriate opportunity to take a look at the amazing history of this treasured shul, its renovation, how it shielded the holy city from Syrian tanks, and a series of special instructions that the Rebbe gave in connection to its reconstruction.
