Hayom Yom: Tamuz 13, Festival of Liberation

Friday Tamuz 13, Festival of Liberation 5703
Tachanun in not said.
Torah lessons: Chumash: Balak, Shishi with Rashi.
Tehillim: 69-71.
Tanya: Ch. 2. However, (p. 347) ..."desirable day." (p. 349).

On this day the Rebbe (R. Yosef Yitzchak) was actually freed.

The imprisonment began at 2:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Sivan 15, 5687 (June 15, 1927). He remained in exile - in the town of Kostrama - until one half-hour past mid-day, Wednesday, Tamuz 13, 5687 (July 13, 1927).

From a letter of the Rebbe to mark the Festival of his Liberation: "I send you a maamar ...which is my participation - for their success - with my beloved friends the chassidim wherever they reside, (which is my way of) being united with you in your farbrengen for the purpose of strengthening the practices of Chassidus, in fixing and observing periods for studying Chassidus and to be stimulated to pragmatically implement those studies...

May our G‑d and G‑d of our Fathers bless the whole community of chassidim - them, their households, their children and grandchildren among all our brothers the people of Israel (G‑d grant them eternal life)1 with all good things of soul and of flesh."

C.f. Yeshayahu 38:16; the verse there refers to t'chiyat hameitim, resurrection.
Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.
