The origins of most major Jewish holidays, like Passover and Purim, are recorded in the Tanach (scriptures). And for that reason, the stories of those holidays never change, no matter who's telling them. But the same cannot be said for Chanukah: the story isn't recorded in the Tanach, so it varies d...

#19 #Kislev: Rosh Hashana of Chassidut

Yud-Tes Kislev, also known as the "Chag HaGeulah—The Holiday of Redemption," or the "Rosh Hashana of Chassidut," begins tonight and continues until sundown tomorrow. On this day in 1798, the Alter Rebbe, Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, was finally freed after spending 53 days in prison. Rabbi Shneur Zalman was the founder of #Chabad Chassidut and the first Chabad Rebbe, and his freedom marked the beginning of a new era: that of the open dissemination of Chabad Chassidut.

14 Kislev, 1928: Marriage of the #Rebbe and Rebbetzin

It was on today’s Hebrew date in November of 1928 that the #marriage of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin, Menachem Mendel and Chaya Mushka Schneerson, took place in Lubavitch Yeshiva of Warsaw, Poland.

Although the Rebbe's parents were unable to join, they celebrated the marriage from their home in Yekatrinislav (now Dnepropetrovsk).

When the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe included Rabbi Menachem Mendel's name on his USSR exit visa in 1927, Soviet officials questioned him. "Why do you need to bring a son-in-law from Russia?" they asked. To which Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak replied, "A son-in-law like this, I won't find anywhere else!"
