11 Nissan 5777: Celebrating 115 years since the birth of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Throughout his leadership, the Rebbe marked his birthday by redoubling his efforts to reach out to Jews in every corner of the world.
To emphasize the vital role of education in society, the United States annually marks "Education and Sharing Day U.S.A." on the anniversary of the birth of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, who dedicated his life to the cause of education.
The sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, passed away on this date in 1950. Exactly one year later, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson accepted the leadership of the movement, and set about transforming the face of world Jewry . . .
