Today, the tenth of Shevat, was the yartzheit of HaRav HaRebbe Rabbi Yosef Yitzhak Schneerson, The Rebbe Rayatz, the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe. And today at Chut Shel Chesed our resident Chabad shaliach made a farbrengen. It was great to sing the nigunim and to hear stories of this great Lubavitcher rebbe...
Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880-1950)6th rebbe of Chabad-LubavitchRabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, the sixth rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, was one of the most remarkable Jewish personalities of the twentieth century. In his seventy years, he encountered every conceivable challenge to Jewish life: the persecutions and pogroms of Czarist Russia, Communism's war on Judaism, and melting-pot America's apathy and scorn toward the Torah and its precepts. The Rebbe was unique in that he not only experienced these chapters in Jewish history -- as did many of his generation -- but that, as a leader of his people, he actually faced them down, often single-handedly, and prevailed.
