As Shluchim converge on Crown Heights from every imaginable place on the globe, excitement mounts. The kinus has arrived.
This year, as we commemorate 40 years since Rosh Chodesh Kislev 5738, Tzivos Hashem is making a special live rally in front of 770, on the bleachers used for the Shluchim photo, to celebrate this special day.
The rally will begin at 11 am with Torah, Tefillah, and Tzeddakah. A special highlight of this rally will be the Mivtza tank parade, each tank representing a country that the shluchim who stood on the very bleachers we will be standing on conquered.
The Crown Heights schools will all be taking time from their Seder to join this momentous event. We strongly encourage mothers, along with their older children or those who do not have school, to join the rally as well.
On the day that Chassidim once proclaimed “the Rebbe is Gezunt”, let us, his soldiers, show the world that he is still as gezunt as ever affecting the world in a most powerful way through each chossid, each shliach. In this way, we will merit seeing the Rebbe once again gezunt with the coming of moshiach tzidkeinu, bemiheira veyameinu mamesh!

At the highlight of that Tishrei chassidim were on fire.
Their eyes set on the Rebbe, the unthinkable transpired.
Their hearts were filled with fears.
Their tehillim soaked in tears.
Yet the Rebbe had insisted, it’s here that I will stay.
With dancing and your simcha a nes is on its way.
Laws of nature fall aside
The Rebbe’s will does override
The miracle is clear for everyone to see
The long awaited came about
No longer room for fear or doubt
The Rebbe walked out from 770
Their joy knew no bounds
They danced with all their might,
Hakofos had resumed, and lasted through the night.
devoted they stood in total unity,
The Rebbe is Gezunt and with us he will be.
His glory was displayed more than ever shown
His leadership expands more than ever known
Our love and our bond, strengthened so much more,
The Rebbe is Gezunt,
and stronger than before.
Aha Hey Ay Yay ya ya
Very soon the day will come
and as awaited
The ultimate reunion will be celebrated
The door will open wide
The Rebbe we will see
Walking out from 770
From far and wide we’ll all unite
and come to greet him
faithful soldiers in the front
We’ll stand right near him
The promise is fulfilled in it’s entirety
As we march to Geula from 770
Our joy will know no bounds
We’ll dance with all our might
Farbrengens will resume, and last right through the night.
devoted we will stand in total unity,
The Rebbe is Gezunt and together we will be.
His greatness and his strength, will be more than ever shown
Sichos and Maamorim will be more than ever known
His goal will be reached, in it’s entirety
The Rebbe is Gezunt,
and forever he will be!
