The Song in Your Heart from Rabbi YY Jacobson (8-Minute 12+13-Tammuz Video)

I’m posting this incredible story about love and the Lubavitcher Rebbe in honor of the 12th-13th of Tamuz, known as the Chag HaGeula (Festival of Liberation) when the sixth Lubavitcher rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, was officially granted release from his sentence of exile to Kastroma in the interior of Russia.
Twenty-seven days earlier, the Rebbe had been arrested by agents of the GPU and the Yevsektzia (“Jewish Section” of the Communist Party) for his activities to preserve Judaism throughout the Soviet empire and sentenced to death, G-d forbid. International pressure forced the Soviets to commute the sentence to exile and, subsequently, to release him completely. The actual release took place on Tammuz 13, and Tammuz 12-13 is celebrated as a “festival of liberation” by the Chabad-Lubavitch community. [Chabad.org]
Chag Sameach!
