REBBE LEVI YITZCHOK SCHNEERSON

The Gaon, Chossid and Mekubal Rabbi Levy Yitzchok 
Schneerson was the Rav of Yektrinoslav and the father of the 
Rebbe. Most of his writings from Yektrinoslav, in Nigla, 
Chassidus and Kabalah have been lost.

The little that remains consists of what he wrote on margins of 
the few books he had with him in exile (where he was banished 
by the Communist government as punishment for his 
involvement in spreading Judaism) in the years 1939-1944. A 
number of letters he wrote to his son the Rebbe, may his merit 
protect us, also remain.

By miraculous means the books with his fathers notes on the 
margin have reached us, and the Rebbe published them 
between 1970-1983.

From these the Exhibition presents:

144. Likutei Levy Yitzchok Al HaZohar, Kehot, 1970.

145. Likutei Levy Yitzchok Al HaTanya, Kehot, 1970.

146. Toras Levy Yitzchok Al HaShas, Kehot, 1971.

147. Toras Levy Yitzchok Hosafa,  LYalkut Shimoni 
UMasechet Gitin, Kehot, 1979.

148. Toras Levy Yitzchok Hosofa, LTehillim ULPurim, 
Kehot, 1933.

Also presented in the Exhibition:

149. Zohar, with Rabbi Levy Yitzchoks handwritten notes 
in the margin.

Due to lack of ink where he was exiled, his wife, Rebbitzin 
Chana (who voluntarily joined him in exile), made ink of 
different colors from plants she found. He used this ink for his 
writing.

150. Explanation on Tehillim, in his handwriting.

151. Letter, in his handwriting.

152. Photograph, on the day of his arrest in 1939.

153. Photograph, after he was liberated from exile in 1944.

When the Rebbe saw this photo for the first time he was 
surprised that the appearance of his fathers saintly face had 
changed so drastically after five years of exile. He noted his 
surprise by writing: "My father of blessed memory?"

187. Portrait, by E.K. Tifenbrun.

188. Portrait, after his liberation from exile, in the 
summer of 1944.
