The Rebbe’s Passing: 3 Events. 6 Suggestions. Read On....

On the anniversary of a tzadik’s passing, all the light that he planted in this world— his teachings, good deeds, and everything in which he invested his life and being—all this shines brightly, so that anyone connecting to him can receive blessings of life, happiness and wisdom.

On the anniversary of his passing (evening of Wed. June 24 & all day Thursday, June 25), let's celebrate the Rebbe's vision.

Let's honor his life's mission to bring goodness and kindness into this world. Let's do one more mitzvah, one more good deed, to make this world a better place.

We have THREE events over the course of Wednesday & Thursday, June 24-25 for you to connect - heart, mind and soul! 

Choose any or all of the options below to spend this day in a meaningful and real manner: to listen, to watch, to read. 

All of them will connect you with the soul of the Rebbe - and the essence of your own soul...

A Day for the Rebbe - full day's programming 

6 simple suggestions for soul connection:


Best connections are mind-to-mind. Make some of those by visiting our special collection of essays and videos—and plug your mind into the Rebbe’s ideas.


Make the light real. On the evening before, light a 24-hour candle, as is customary on the anniversary of a close one’s passing. Even if you don’t regularly attend services, try to get to your local Chabad House.


Partner with one of the Rebbe’s institutions, either at home, in Israel, or abroad, by making a donation that day.


Check out the Ten-Point Mitzvah Campaign the Rebbe initiated. See how you can expand your involvement in any of those mitzvahs. Encourage another Jew to do the same. As the Rebbe would often say, any one mitzvah can transform the entire world.


Write a letter to be placed at the resting place of the Rebbe that day, using our online form. Ask him to help you open the gates of heaven’s blessings—for you, your family and friends at this special time. Mention the resolutions you have made today, and the positive influence you’ve had on others.

Spread the Word

Make a time to sit with your family and talk about the Rebbe, his accomplishments and his vision, and the mission he gave each one of us to prepare this world for the times of Moshiach.
