Some 10,000 members of the Chabad Lubavitch movement gathered at a Tel Aviv stadium to mark the 50th anniversary of the late Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson’s becoming the movement’s leader. The anniversary also commemorates the death of Schneerson’s predecessor, his father-in-law, Rebbe Yosef Yitzhak Schneerson.
