“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, Rabbi Schapiro discusses never before publicized events in 1988 between the rebbe, Rabbi Mordechai Aizik Hodakov and Rabbi Mindel.
Historic events were unfolding in 5748 – during the months and years following the passing of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka on the 22nd of Sh’vat, 1988.
The following three programs of our Thursday night “The Inside Story of Chabad in America Through the Archives of Nissan Mindel” – will focus on some of these unusual events which took place during the summer weeks of Menachem Av 32 years ago.
Rabbi Shalom Ber Schapiro will uncover a never-before publicized unique yechidus of the Rebbe with Rabbi Hodakov and Rabbi Mindel – during which the Rebbe introduces a new campaign.
A fascinating exchange of letters and behind-the-scenes activities will be revealed.
During these programs, Rabbi Schapiro will also mention some names of men and women who enthusiastically answered the Rebbe’s call.
