The Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, zt”l , Judaica Art



The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson was the leader of the world renowned Lubavitch Chassidut. Born in 1902 to Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson and the Kabbalist Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, chief Rabbi of Dnieperpetrovsk in the Ukraine, he would soon grow to be one of the Jewish world’s most famous personalities. Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson was the seventh leader of Chabad-Lubavitch dynasty and he built upon and expanded his predecessor’s work of spreading the Jewish way of life to Jews across the globe. Until today many Chabad Chassidim can be found volunteering in some of the world’s most remote corners. There they bring acts of chesed (not to mention kosher food) to distant wayfarers.

Known to many simply as “the Rebbe”, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson passed away in 1994.
