Who was Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson?

Tomorrow is the tenth of Shvat, an important day of the calendar of Chabad Hasidim. On this day in 1950 the 6th Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson, passed away; one year later his son-in-law Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson took over the leadership of Lubavitch Hasidim. His role at the helm of Chabad was truly transformational, not only for his immediate followers but also for the Jewish world as a whole.

Please join me at 12 noon tomorrow (New York time) for a retrospective look at the life and work of this remarkable Jewish leader.
