Description

Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the founder of Chabad- Lubavitch Chassidism was arrested, persecuted, and imprisoned in the year 1798 for his selfless efforts to strengthen the Jewish people and to disseminate Chassidic teachings. His arrest imperiled both his own life and the future of Chassidism. On the 19th of Kislev that year, Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi was freed from his severe imprisonment in Petersburg, Russia, cleared of charges and with his teachings vindicated.This book explores this noteworthy turning point in the Chasidic movement, and its importance as a milestone in Jewish History.
