Israeli Officers Visit Crown Heights

March 3, 2008
A delegation of high-ranking Israel Defense Force officers visited the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, N.Y. The 12 lieutenant colonels from all branches of the Israeli military first stopped at Lubavitch World Headquarters, where they heard about the particular care shown by the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, for Israel’s soldiers, and the Chabad-Lubavitch philosophy that propels its adherents to visit IDF forces at forward bases and throughout the country.
