Russia to preserve Rebbe’s books, manuscripts

AP posted a story about how Chabad managed a US judge to issue “a restraining order telling Russia to protect the documents and return any that may already have been removed from the Russian State Military Archives.” The 12,000 books (including the first editions of Tanya) and 50,000 documents were “formerly held by Rabbi Joseph Isaac Schneersohn, a leader of Chabad-Lubavitch who was born in Russia but forced by the Soviets to leave in 1927.” If the AP story expires at Yahoo, read at Chabad.
