While the main features of 770 are well known, the buildings that house Chabad World Headquarters are home to countless details, each with a story behind it.

Before traveling back to Eretz Yisroel after a year in New York, Anash.org photographer Mendy Kotlyar took an full tour of 770, exploring the lesser-known rooms, fixtures and features, scattered around 770 and hidden in plain sight.

Do you know where in Chabad Headquarters rests a model of the Beis Hamikdosh? How many mosdos have offices in the actual building of 770? How man libraries could one borrow a sefer from across the three buildings on Eastern Parkway? And where in 770 are there tiles with artwork from a 19th century children’s book?

  1. I wish you would post what each picture is. It is very fascinating, but without an explanation, very difficult to appreciate.
    Thanks
