When the Lubavitcher Rebbe Accepted his Leadership

Reb Moshe Chaim Sapochkinsky recalls traveling to New York in 1951 in honor of the first yahrzeit of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson, the Previous Rebbe. He was present at the historic event when a group of elder chasidim petitioned the Rebbe to accept the leadership of Chabad-Lubavitch, which the Rebbe had previously declined to do.
