Many Chassidim considered the day they arrived in Lubavitch to be their "birthday." My teacher, R. Shmuel Betzalel, arrived in Lubavitch the first time on Thursday evening parshat Mishpatim 5608 (1848). Every year after that, he stayed awake all that night and took pains to put on his tefillin at the exact time he had entered the Tzemach Tzedek's chamber for yechidus the first time.
