Shevat 10: A Day of Two Rebbes
Today is the 10th of Shevat, the yahrtzeit (anniversary of passing) of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory, who passed away in 1950. On that fateful day, leadership of the world-wide Chabad-Lubavitch movement passed on to his son-in-law and successor, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, universally known as “the Rebbe.”
For the Rebbe’s countless followers and admirers, this is a day for introspection and recommitment to the ideals that the Rebbe championed throughout the decades of his leadership: love of G-d, Torah, and every Jew; and utilizing these tools to bring holiness and meaning to every corner of the world.
