The Rambam teaches that anyone who dedicates himself to G-d’s work, studying Torah and fulfilling its commandments, can be considered as part of the special tribe of Levi. Such was the case with Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, the Rebbe’s father, who gave himself over to the impossible task of providing true leadership to Soviet Jewry the Jews stuck in the USSR. He may have ended up paying with his life for his efforts, but his legacy has far outlived that of his oppressors.
