Daughter to the FIRST SHLIACH to SCANDINAVIA

In 1932 ,y father harav Yacov Yisroel Zuber was sent by the FRIERDIKE REBBE to Stockholm Sweden where he served the community for eighteen years as the Rav of Adas Yisroel synagogue, as a shochet, a mohel, a Baal Tefillah, a Chazzan, and of course as a Rebbe for the young men who were unable to leave the country during those tumultous years in the Holocaust. Our home was Chabad, always filled with the youth of the city. There was no community center or other organizationsfor Orthodox Jewish youth but The Home of Rabbi and Rebbetzin Zlata Zuber.

In response to Number 3- It saddened me to read in the article that the Namdars claim TO BE THE FIRST SHLUCHIM IN sCANDINAVIA.I WANT THE RECORD TO BE SET STRAIGHT. The activities of the Frierdike Rebbe deserve to be given recognition. The activities of the first Shliach to Scandinavia, Harav Yacov Yisroel Zuber should be recognized by the subsequent Chabad leaders. We build on the past. We remember and recognize our founders. My Father received permission from theSwedish king to allow us not to attend school on Shabbos as in those days schools were open six days a week.… Read more »

Nowhere in the article does it say that the Namdars are the first Shluchim. Only that they opened the first Chabad house, which according to your account appears to be accurate. Your father definitely deserves recognition and we should look to the past to better understand the present and future, but again, why here? How does it help the Namdars or your father to distract from the current pressing need? Please write an article on your father’s work in Scandanavia as the Frierdiker Rebbe’s shliach, and also please write a check to the Namdars so they can continue the work… Read more »

#1: Clearly Rabbi Zubar was the very first Chabad présence in Scandinavia, having been sent as a shaliach by the Frierdike Rebbe.
#3: I believe that the daughter of Rabbi Zubar has already been interviewed by JEM. I have seen the video.
The connection is that the facts in the article are not accurate.
The Namdars may have “instituted the first Chabad house in Scandinavia” in RECENT MEMORY, and that, at the request of our Rebbe, the son-in-law of the Frierdike Rebbe, however the first Chabad presence was established originally in 1934.
