Alongside its collections of over 250,000 printed books, the Rebbe’s library is also home to several thousand manuscripts, including parts of the original draft of Mishna Berurah and the priceless personal Siddur of the Baal Shem Tov.

Thousands of priceless treasures lie on the shelves and safes of the Central Chabad Library, right next door to 770. The average chossid, however, won’t have the chance to see the most precious of them. Until now, that is.
A new series, launched by Anash.org in partnership with the Rebbe’s library, will showcase some of the most unique and historic books and items in the Rebbe’s library.
Alongside its collections of over 250,000 printed books, the Rebbe’s library is also home to several thousand manuscripts, each one of a kind.
Many are manuscripts of Chassidus, transcribed by the Rebbeim and their chassidim, but there are also manuscripts of Halchah, Kabbalah and other topics.
The crown jewel of these manuscripts is the personal siddur of the Baal Shem Tov.
