Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch, known as the Tzemach Tzedek, lived at a time when the Jews of the Russian Empire faced many anti-Semitic decrees at the hands of the czars.

Like his predecessors, the Tzemach Tzedek did all he could to better the situation of his fellow Jews, with one exception. Instead of sending representatives to the Russian capital, he would often travel there himself.

Since his yahrzeit falls just before Passover, his personal concern for others teaches us about the proper way to prepare for the festival – but first, another story.
