“Vine of Israel”

After the Rebbe’s liberation from Soviet-imposed exile, he delivered a Chasidic discourse expounding the verse: “You caused a vine to journey out of Egypt; You expelled nations and implanted it.” The Sages explain that just as a vine is uprooted from its place and replanted elsewhere in order to grow more plentifully, likewise, when G-d moves a Jew to a new location, it is only in order to increase his success.
Tammuz 12-13, Lubavitcher Rebbe, Jewish History, R. Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn of Lubavitch
In the face of Tsarist anti-semitism, communism, and the Holocaust, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak resolutely perpetuated traditional Jewish life and the potent spirit of Chassidism.
