As Chassidim around the world celebrate 70 years of the Rebbe‘s leadership, Rabbi Sholom Ber Schapiro presents 3 special and unique programs in the “Historic Treasures” series on COLlive.com.
“Historic Treasures” is presented by Rabbi 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.
