|The Rebbe Yosef Yitzchak said that to undergo struggle and self-sacrifice for Torah and Judaism was one thing, but to demand it of his followers was much harder. This comprehensive overview of Chabad in Russia, from the communist revolution until the end of the postwar exodus of Chassidim to all corners of the globe, chronicles the bitter struggle with the first nation state to declare war on religion in all its forms, and on Torah Judaism and Chabad in particular. Nevertheless, the Rebbe, with his Chassidim, founded an underground network of Yeshivot that continued to produce committed, fully observant Jews through the fall of communism in our days. |
