Chabad Lubavitch Hasidim commemorate on the 19th of Kislev on the Hebrew calendar the release of Rabbi Shneur Zalmen of Liadi from prison in 1798. Rabbi Shneur Zalmen, commonly known as the ?Alter Rebbe? or the ?Baal HaTanya? was the founder of Chabad Hasidim. He was imprisoned in Czarist Russia for treason, with the government (and enemies of the Alter Rebbe) alleging that the funds he was raising for poor Jews living in Israel was supporting the Ottoman Empire.
Farbrengen (inspirational gatherings) are held worldwide on the anniversary of his release.
