Jewish history is dotted with moments when the future of the entire nation stood in the balance, teetering on the outcome of a single event. In our time, the flourishing of Judaism after the Holocaust, the global Baal Teshuvah phenomenon, and the explosion of Jewish life behind the former Iron Curtain, can be traced in large part to one summer day in Leningrad, 1927Ö
The emissaries of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch and his son-in-law and successor, the Rebbe, have been at the forefront of a worldwide Jewish revolution for almost a century. Looking back to the moment when it was all at risk of being lost, the Rebbe finds fundamental secrets to Jewish survival that cut to the very core of what it means to be a Jew in a non-Jewish world, and discusses the values and attitudes thatwill build the next generation of strong, committed Jews.
This special release includes the entire four hour event. Seven of the addresses are presented with subtitles.
