Over 19 Jewish communities will gather for an evening of unity, prayer and music as they mark 30 years since the passing of the Rebbe — Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, the most influential rabbi in modern history. The event, “An Evening Honoring The Rebbe”, will take place at The Sonesta Hotel in White Plains on July 11th.

“Many Jews feel a deep connection to the Rebbe, and his impact is strongly felt here even today, thirty years after his passing,” said Rabbi Mendel Silberstein, director of Chabad of Larchmont and Mamaroneck. "The Rebbe is the inspiration behind much of the vibrant Jewish life that Jews enjoy today in Mamaroneck, White Plains, New Rochelle, and many other towns in Westchester.”

Born in Mykolayiv, Ukraine in 1902, the Rebbe arrived in the USA from Nazi-occupied Europe in 1941. He assumed leadership of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement in 1950, and is credited with engineering Judaism’s global post-Holocaust renaissance.

“Jews from across the spectrum of Jewish life have been touched by his transformative leadership and Torah teachings,” said Rabbi Silberstein. “The Rebbe’s influence is felt most through the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, which became the largest and most dynamic Jewish force in the world under his leadership, with more than 3,500 institutions across more than 100 countries.”

The event will feature Rabbi Yehudah Krinsky, the Rebbe's personal secretary for over four decades and the chairman of the educational arm of the Chabad movement, who will offer unique insights and reflections into the Rebbe’s life and teachings. A captivating musical program by a string quartet will also showcase the Rebbe's cherished songs and melodies.

For many Jews around the world, the occasion of the Rebbe’s passing, corresponding to July 9, is a time to reflect on the Rebbe’s life and teachings through prayer and increasing their acts of goodness and kindness. The date will be marked by thousands of commemorative events around the world, with emphasis on the Rebbe's impact, teachings, and enduring legacy.
