We join Klal Yisrael in marking the 20th yahrzeit of the Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, zt”l, on 3 Tammuz (Tuesday, July 1). The Rebbe was an acknowledged Torah scholar, seminal Torah personality, and one of the most influential Jewish leaders of the 20th century.
He established an unsurpassed global outreach network designed to draw Jews worldwide closer to Judaism. With a particular concern for the education and rearing of Jewish youth, he presided over the building of countless schools, community centers, youth camps and Chabad Houses in the U.S. and abroad.
The Rebbe’s impact on the recent history of the Jewish community has been enormous and is being perpetuated by his devoted followers.
His neshamah should have an aliyah.
