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 in partnership with the Rebbe’s library, will showcase some of the most unique and historic books and items in the Rebbe’s library.


Over the years of his nesius, the Rebbe used a number of different shofaros to blow tekios on Rosh Hashanah, each with its own unique provenance.  

The shofaros are on display in the Rebbe’s library. Just recently, an additional shofar was added to the display.

Here are their stories.
