One who contributes from his wealth for the purpose of writing or publishing a sefer of a Tzaddik –
Behold, at any given time, and in any corner of the world, that a person studies from this sefer, the Tzaddik [on high] evokes merit on behalf of the donor through whom the sefer was disseminated.
—The Rebbe, Igrot Kodesh, vol 2
Garments of the Soul
28 Sivan: A Day of Strength
by Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson the Lubavitcher Rebbe
The 28th day of the month of Sivan, 5751 (1991), marked the fiftieth anniversary of the arrival of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, and his wife, Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, to the United States of America. To commemorate this momentous occasion, a special anniversary monograph was published, which the Rebbe personally attributed to thousands of Chasidim, along with a crisp, new dollar bill, to be given to charity. The monograph comprised various Chasidic discourses and talks by the Rebbe, on the significance of the day and discussing the reestablishment of the Chabad-Lubavitch headquarters upon American shores.
The present publication contains a sampling of this Monograph: a discourse - Garments of the Soul; a talk: A Day of Strength; and a brief overview describing the events leading up to the 28th of Sivan, 5701 (1941). This day is now marked annually in Jewish communities around the world, celebrating the day on which the Rebbe began his decades-long revolutionary works of revitalizing Jewish life in the Western Hemisphere and across the globe.
