The Festival of Liberation

Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn
12-13 Tammuz (today and tomorrow) is the anniversary of the liberation of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, from Soviet prisons in 1927. He was incarcerated for the "crime" of creating an underground network of Jewish schools, mikvahs, and other Jewish institutions.
