fulL PRoDucTION of behind the satellite:


More than three decades ago, a momentous event unfolded on Yud Shevat 5753 at 770 Eastern Parkway, marking a significant milestone in the Chabad Lubavitch community. The International Committee to Bring Moshiach orchestrated a global live hookup, drawing Chassidim from around the world to witness the presence of the revered Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach.

The initiative, conceived weeks before Yud Shevat, aimed to unite Chassidim worldwide in proclaiming "Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu V'Rabbeinu Melech HaMoshiach L'Olam Voed" simultaneously as the Rebbe appeared on the balcony. Additionally, the event featured the unveiling of a painting depicting the envisioned world under Moshiach's benevolent rule.

Extensive preparations took place, with Lubavitcher schools globally engaging in special activities to honor the occasion. A declaration by Rabbonim underscored the event's significance, emphasizing the coronation of the King and the acceptance of His Malchus by declaring "Yechi HaMelech."

Anticipating negative media coverage, warnings were issued against external TV or radio hookups. Despite initial challenges and opposition, the event received the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach's approval, and a successful satellite hookup was arranged within a remarkably short timeframe.

On the eve of Yud Shevat, trucks laden with satellite equipment faced resistance, but determined efforts prevailed. The Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach Shlita joined the event, and after Maariv, the global proclamation echoed through the crowd as Chassidim worldwide united in declaring "Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu V'Rabbeinu Melech HaMoshiach L'Olam Vo'ed." The Rebbe's appearance on the balcony marked a moment of unity and devotion.

Post-event, false reports emerged suggesting the Rebbe's opposition to the initiative, which was promptly refuted. The Worldwide Committee to Bring Moshiach reaffirmed their commitment during a meeting with Rabbonim and Mashpiim, emphasizing that every action was undertaken with the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach Shlita's consent and blessing.

Despite media debates and controversies, the event left an indelible mark on the Chabad Lubavitch community, fostering a renewed connection to the Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach and the anticipation of a Messianic era.
