Today, the 3rd of Adar l, marks 27 years since the Levaya of Mrs. Pesha Leah Lapine Hy”d who was murdered al kiddush Hashem.
Her vicious killing sent waves of shock through the entire Jewish community, and the Chabad community in Crown Heights in particular.
The Rebbe personally attended the Levaya with his deep pain visible on his face. Included here are photos from the Levaya; for a full gallery from this day, check out TheLivingArchive.org.
Following the end of Shiva, the Rebbe delivered an emotional Sicha, beseeching the Almighty to end this dark Galus and send Moshiach.
