A new exhibit has opened in the Library of Agudas Chassidei Chabad, the official archive of the Lubavitch movement in Crown Heights, about the third Chabad Rebbe.
Writings and artifacts belonging to Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch, better known as the Tzemach Tzedek, are on display in the library’s exhibit room adjacent to 770 Eastern Parkway.
It was opened on the eve of Rosh Hashana which is the yartzeit anniversary of the Tzemach Tzedek (1789-1866) who intervened politically, economically and spiritually to help his Jewish brethren.
Manuscripts and letters displaying his great scholarship –from among the Chabad Rebbes, he has written the most– as well as books, images of him and tableware he used.
Entrance is $3. Hours of operation are Sunday-Thursday 12:00-5:00pm and on Friday or on Erev Yom Tov 12:00-2:00 PM.
