Chof Ches Sivan Farbrengen Tonight

There will be a farbengen tonight at Tzemach Tzedek in honor of Chaf Ches Sivan, the day the Rebbe arrived in the United States, following the 9:30 PM Maariv minyan.

After escaping Nazi-occupied Paris, and many perilous months in Vichy France, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), and his wife, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushkah (1901-1988), boarded the SS Serpa Pinto in Lisbon, Portugal.


On Monday, June 23-Sivan 28 on the Jewish calendar-at 10:30 A.M., they arrived in New York.
Shortly after his arrival, the Rebbe's father-in-law, the then Lubavitcher Rebbe Rabbi Yoseph Yitzchak Schneersohn (who had been rescued from Nazi-occupied Warsaw in 1940), appointed him to head the social and educational outreach programs of Chabad-Lubavitch.


Thus the Rebbe began his decades-long revolutionary work to revitalize Jewish life in the Western Hemisphere, which spread, by means of the Shluchim he dispatched from his New York headquarters, to every part of the world.
