“Historic Treasures,” is presented by Rabbi Sholom Ber Schapiro, Director of the Nissan Mindel Publications (NMP), exclusively for COLlive.com.
Each program shares ‘treasures’ from the archives of Rabbi Schapiro’s father in law, Rabbi Dr. Nissan Mindel OBM, a prolific writer who served as a personal secretary of the 6th and 7th Chabad Rebbes.
The program uncovers fascinating stories, rare artifacts and precious documents from the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.
This week’s program is dedicated to the grandfather of Rabbi Schapiro, R’ Schneur Zalman Wilenkin, R’ Schneur Zalman ben Levy Yitzchok, whose yartzeit was this week on the 23rd of Iyar. R’ Wilenkin was a renowned devoted Chossid and was the Rebbe’s melamed.
