Wow, I can not believe this. My grandparents would be so surprised about this. Their escape was very terrifying. They made it to America. This is wonderful. Please let this go around the world.

It seems Jews never had any period of decent treatment in Russia or Soviet Union...Today it seems Putin and the new Russia have changed with respect to how Jews are viewed and treated there...the first time in Russian history it seems...and Chabad is thriving there B'H. Reply

The Secret of Chabad I'm reading the book right now. These are amazing stories especially since I took part in the Soviet Jewry movement back in the 70's. Reply
