Chana Shapiro: Dnepropetrovsk, 1909

In 1909, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak, Rebbetzin Chana and their three sons moved to Dnepropetrovsk, a huge military city 520 kilometers from Kiev, where Rabbi Levi Yitzchok became the rabbi of the city’s 25 synagogues and 50,000 Jews. He turned to Rabbi Zalman Vilenkin, asking him to teach his sons. Chana Shapiro is Rabbi Vilenkin’s daughter, recalling her parents’ descriptions of the children in their home.
Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson, R. Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, Dnepropetrovsk, Lubavitcher Rebbe
