THE LUBAVICH RABBI
The Grand Rabbi of Lubavitch, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, better known as: The Rebbe is considered to be the most extraordinary Jewish personality of modern times. For thousands of faithful and millions of sympathizers around the world, he was the one who is responsible more than any other, for a renewed consciousness and spiritual awakening of the Jewish world .
Apart from a first master with whom he will take his first steps, his father will be his only tutor. For his human qualities, his mother will relate belatedly that he jumped at the age of ten into the frozen Dnieper (a river in Eastern Europe) to save a drowning child. After having volunteered as a first aider, he was almost killed by typhus.
In Berlin, where the future Rebbe would attend university, and a large number of Jewish intellectuals whose city still honors itself (he later remembered having seen Albert Einstein playing the violin there) In 1933, the rise to power of the Nazism made them leave Berlin for Paris. There, he will attend the Sorbonne and other establishments of higher education while reviving the spirit of the many refugees whom the turmoil begins to pour into the City of Lights. He also provides a daily course at the oratory at 17 rue des Rosiers.
From his stay in the French capital, the Rebbe will keep all his life a particular attachment to French Judaism, whose history later will make him well. Even to the point that during a memorable Simchat Torah in 1974 in New York, attended by some five hundred French people, in front of a dumbfounded community, he made the French dance to the tune of the Marseillaise which he sang to the words a hymn to the glory of Gd, recited on Shabbat and the Feasts in the synagogue.
On Shevat 10, 5711, January 17, 1951, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson sat in the seat left vacant by the departure of his father-in-law a year earlier and became the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe. His profession of faith can be summed up in the dissemination of the Torah and its values.
His smile will leave no one indifferent and no one can resist a movement of his arm when he asks to increase the vigor of the song, or when he brings two fingers to his mouth to ask to whistle.
On 3 Tammuz 5754, June 12, 1994, he disappeared from the eyes of a world which still resounds daily with his teachings on all horizons of the planet, leaving us the promise of Deliverance and the injunction to work on our own forces, as well as those of the depths of the soul, to concretize its advent.
