Event Date: 14 Adar II 5733 - March 18, 1973

Before Purim of 1927, my father-in-law, the Previous Rebbe, put his life in danger when he spoke about the imperative to provide Jewish children with an authentic Torah education, even under communist rule, during a public address in Moscow.

In Stalinist Russia, there were Jews willing to risk their very lives in order to do this. In the free world, we need only to have the right priorities.

A Torah Education is Fine But.... It does not mean the secular is ignored. One cannot contributed to society with just a Torah education and no math, science, and so forth. Reply
