Letter from the Rebbe, 24th of Tevet 1968. It’s the continuation of a letter from a previous auction (see item #198, Sale #25), and has an additional handwritten section on the situation in the Land of Israel
Typewritten letter on the Rebbe’s letterhead, the second section of a letter from the 24th of Tevet, 1968 which appeared already in these auctions, in which he writes a Marei Mekomot for subjects that arose in his letter (see item #198 in sale #25). At the end there is an interesting reference handwritten to the movement to settle and develop the land that exploded in the period following the Six Day War. The Rebbe, who was deeply attached to Israel and found this subject extremely important, wished in the letter that the Rebbeim would take advantage of this opportunity and take part in this important movement.
The Admor Chabad Rebbe Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson of Lubavitch was the 7th Chabad Rebbe (1902-1994).
The recipient was Rabbi Alexander Sender Yudasin, an important Chabad rabbi in Israel, leader of the Chassidic community in Yafo for close to 50 years, member of the Beit Din and author of books on the Shas and the Tanya. Born in Belarus, he studied at the Tomchei Temimim yeshiva under the Rashab, and after the First World War, established a branch of Tomchei Temimim in Kherson, a city in Ukraine, and received a rabbinical ordination from Rabbi David Zvi Chen. The Kabbalist Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson - the father of the last Rabbi of Chabad, was the mesader kiddushin at his wedding. He was in close contact with the Rebbe and was repeatedly banned by the Soviets for his activities on his mission. He immigrated to Eretz Yisrael in the year of 1934 and settled in Tel Aviv where he was later appointed the rabbi of the Chabad community in Jaffa. He died in 1983.
