Yud Daled Kislev Farbrengen Tonight

There will be a farbrengen tonight, Wednesday, following the 9:30 PM Maariv minyan in honor of Yud Daled Kislev.

On the 14th of Kislev in 1928, the Rebbe married Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneersohn, the middle daughter of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, the Frierdiker Rebbe. The wedding was held in Warsaw, Poland, at the Lubavitcher Yeshivah, Tomchei Temimim.

Upon Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak's passing in 1950, Rabbi Menachem Mendel succeeded his father-in-law as the Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch. 

On the 14th of Kislev of 1953, at a farbrengen (Chassidic gathering) marking his 25th wedding anniversary, the Rebbe said to his Chassidim: "This is the day that bound me to you, and you to me."
