The highly popular ‘Treasures from the Rebbe’s Library’ series which is published weekly on Anash.org is now available to stream as a podcast as well.

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 recently, that is.

A weekly series, produced by Anash.org in partnership with the Rebbe’s library, showcases some of the most unique and historic books and items in the Rebbe’s library.

The items shown are among the most precious, the ones that exist in few copies around the world, or only at the Rebbe’s library. Other items are ones relating to Chabad history and give a window into how 7 generations of Rebbeim gathered seforim, manuscripts and artifacts to create what is today a prominent collection.

Accompanying each item is a short lecture by Rabbi Berel Levine, Chief Librarian of the Rebbe’s library, scholar, researcher and author of numerous works on Chabad history, halacha and other topics.

Rabbi Levine gives a brief synopsis of the history and significance of each item, and when applicable, how the item fits into the bigger picture of Jewish history and the history of Chabad.

The video series, published each week on Anash.org, has received high praise for the fascinating topics and clear presentation. Rabbi Levine began with the earliest days of the Hebrew press and continued through the many stages of printing up to the Mitteler Rebbe’s time, with two captivating episodes focusing on the Alter Rebbe and Mitteler Rebbe’s involvement in printing the Talmud. Prior to Pesach, two special episodes on the Haggada Shel Pesach were also released.

Now, in addition to the video format, the series is available in a podcast format as well, for those who prefer to stream audio. The weekly episode will be uploaded in both audio and video and can be enjoyed by anyone who has an interest in Jewish history, Chabad history or the history of printing.

The weekly series will iyh continue after Pesach, with new and exciting episodes coming up in the following weeks.
