fter narrowly escaping the Nazi onslaught in France, the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), and his wife, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson (1901-1988), arrived to the United States of America on the 28th day of the Jewish month of Sivan.

The Sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe appointed his newly arrived son-in-law to head the social and educational outreach programs of Chabad-Lubavitch. Thus began the Rebbe’s decades-long revolutionary work to revitalize Jewish life in the Western Hemisphere and across the globe.
