Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Ed Royce proudly told a Beverly Hills crowd about helping the Schneerson Collection.

By COLlive reporter

Congressman Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, proudly told a Jewish crowd about his involvement with freeing the captive Schneerson Collection from Russia.

Royce reported to participants of the Republican Jewish Coalition's California Bash that a single historic volume was recently returned to its rightful place at the official Chabad library in Brooklyn, NY.

His announcement was met with applause by attendees of the gala held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Sunday evening.

Since 1992, just 8 volumes of the collection belonging to the Chabad Rebbes have been returned to Chabad. The sacred library and archive consist of 12,000 books and 30,000 pages.

Earlier this year, all 100 members of the U.S. Senate sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin requesting the return of the Schneerson collection of sacred texts from the Russian State Library and the Russian State Military Archive.

While Russia has not yet returned these sacred texts to Chabad, one volume was recently discovered at Kedem Auction House in Jerusalem and returned to Chabad. Royce thanked U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman for his involvement in the matter.

Ed Royce, champion of Israel and justice
Ed Royce is Israelís greatest champion and a beacon of light and justice. It is so fitting that he has been able to achieve this breakthrough with the return of this volume from Russia. Thank you Ed, for what you have done on behalf of those who have suffered at the hands of Hilter and Stalin.

The triumph of JUSTICE, GOODNESS and KINDNESS has been propelled in a manner of true líchathiller ariber as this holy safer of the Rebbe Maharash joins the Tanya of the Freidiker Rebbe in the holy room of our Rebbe.

President Vladimir Putin - it is in your hands to please speed the redemption we have worked for since the beginning of creation with your immediate act of goodness and kindness - to honor the wishes of our Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, that the remainder of these holy books and manuscripts be returned to the Library of Lubavitch next to the Rebbeís House at 770 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York.
