This evening and tomorrow the tenth of Shevat mark the Yahrtzeit of the Rebbe Rayatz - Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe (1880-1950 - 10 Shevat). It was also the day on which Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn took over the leadership of Chabad one year later (1951) - becoming the 7th Lubavitcher Rebbe.
In honour of this special day, four wonderful video clips are presented for your viewing. The first contains parts of the first Maamar that the 7th Rebbe began his formal Nesiut (leadership) of Chabad with. It's theme? All sevens are special! His leadership extends through our generation - the 7th generation - a special one that must do everything it can to bring the Shechina (Divine Presence) into this world "below."
