On the 14th of Kislev, 1928, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, married Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneersohn (1901-1988).
The wedding was held in Warsaw, Poland, at the Lubavitcher Yeshivah, Tomchei Temimim.
Upon Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn‘s passing in 1950, Rabbi Menachem Mendel succeeded his father-in-law as the seventh Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch.
On the 14th of Kislev of 1953, at a farbrengen marking his 25th wedding anniversary, the Rebbe said to his Chassidim: “This is the day that bound me to you, and you to me.”
Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim Haolami in New York published two booklets in honor of the auspicious day. They will were distributed to Lubavitch Yeshivos worldwide and are available on COLlive for download.
