The Boat was called SS Drottingholm, the journey took 13 days with several stops on the way by warships patrolling the sea and problems with the ship.

The boat was the SS Drottningholm, and he spent 12 days on it. The Frierdiker Rebbe's famous quote when he arrived was "America is no different."

The Rebbe's Arrival to America
I was curious to see this video today, March 15, 2011. Amazingly, the Rebbe arrived on my english birthday-Feb. 18, 1940 but I would be born 20 years later in Rehovot, Israel.

I know this Rebbe was full of wisdom and people I've met that knew him, always speak highly of him. I am thankful that I met, and spoke with the next Lubavitcher Rebbe around my Hebrew birthday back in 1973. This was called the "yechidus" with the Rebbe upon a child's Bar-Mitzvah. However, this is another wonderful story discussed on other Lubavitcher sites....

I will ALWAYS love Lubavitch!

They gave me my education on a scholarship, provided me with yearly matzoahs, allowed me to shine, and assisted me financially when I recently ill,

Lubavitch may have its issues currently since no one is leading the helm but there are more Chabad houses now than ever before. Also, they continue their outreach to bring our people closer to Hashem than those who would rather chase us away.

Magical Wishes,
