Footage of the Rebbe’s Arrival

Tomorrow, the 9th of Adar, marks the day when the Previous Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, arrived in America after miraculously escaping war-torn Europe.

79 years ago, on the 9th of Adar 1940, the Previous Rebbe disembarked at the New York harbor after a 12-day sea voyage. The Rebbe arrived in America with a mission, declaring that “America is no different.” Judaism and Chabad would flourish in America as they had in Europe.
