The Alter Rebbe's Legacy: Academics discuss the founder of Chabad

Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi founded Chabad Chassidism. He was imprisoned in czarist Russia in 1798 for his revolutionary ideals, and subsequently released. He is also known as “the Alter Rebbe.”

I know this is a little late, but the lady speaking's name is credited in the Rashab's video. I can't remember her name just now, but if you watch that one it will become clear. There was no disrespect intended. Reply

Give Credit Where Credit is Due Anonymous (of 1/6/13) is correct: who is the woman speaking? Why is her name not credited, as are the two men speaking? She's obviously an educated, learned person. Where is HER NAME AND TITLE??? Leaving it out is a shame.

Although, this clip appears to be an excerpt from perhaps a full-length film. Maybe she was credited on that one. Still, a name plate should have been edited onto this one, in that case. Reply
