The Story of an Extraordinary Escape

JEM on Whatsapp presents a new series recounting the story of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin’s escape from war-torn Europe and arrival on American soil in 1941.

As the Nazis marched through Europe, nary a city was safe for Jews, and like millions of their brethren, the Rebbe and Rebbetzin were in perilous danger. Finally, on the 28th of Sivan 1941, after a harrowing journey that began in France years earlier, the Rebbe and Rebbetzin arrived in New York.

In the leadup to the anniversary of this auspicious day, JEM will present a special WhatsApp series highlighting and documenting the extraordinary story that brought them to America.
