“Levi Yitzchak”: The Rebbe explains the inner meaning of his father's name

An address to the campers of Gan Israel New York, on the Yahrzeit of the Rebbe’s father, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Schneerson: The primary purpose of my father’s self-sacrifice was the education of Jewish children under communist oppression.
R. Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, Lubavitcher Rebbe
A mystic and scholar, he wrote commentaries on the most esoteric texts. As rabbi of a major Ukrainian city, he struggled valiantly to strengthen Judaism, in spite of Soviet intimidation.
