128 years separate the first imprisonment (and release) of a Chabad Rebbe from the last. The first - R' Shneur Zalman of Liadi, released from prison on the 19th of Kislev 5559 (1798); the last - R' Yosef Yitzchak, released from prison on the 12th of Tammuz 5687 (1927).
128 years also separate the passing of the two Chabad Rebbes who were namesakes: the Tzemach Tzedek, 13th of Nissan 5626 (1866), and the last Rebbe, 3rd of Tammuz 5754 (1994).
128 were the soldiers who lived in Y'rushalayim (N'chemya 11:14).
