A Rebbe's Life
Canadian Jewish News,Wednesday, August 13, 2014
...Telushkin’s adult relationship with Chabad is not made clear in Rebbe. Yet he points to a longstanding bond between his family and the chassidic movement nurtured by Rabbi Schneerson. This includes his father’s longstanding duties as the rebbe’s tax accountant (Telushkin recalls encountering, as a child, the Rebbe’s tax return in his father’s desk drawer); and, more uniquely, a single yechidus, or personal meeting with the Rebbe, which took place in 1968...
