Rosh Chodesh Kislev: A Day of Rejoicing

In honor of Rosh Chodesh Kislev, a joyous day on the calendar marking the Rebbe’s recovery from a heart attack, we present an array of videos and stories to learn, connect and be inspired on this day.

On Rosh Chodesh Kislev 5738 (1977) the Rebbe finally returned home after recovering from a heart attack on Shemini Atzeres. As then, the day is one of rejoicing and joy the world over.

Learn about the day, hear from first-hand witnesses, and relive the experience.
