When the Menorah Fades

Edited by: Alex Lahav
Translated by: Binyamin Shalom

This book describes the life of the Jewish people in Hadiach, Ukraine, and their suffering under the Nazis, with a Kabbalistic spiritual touch: the Perpetual Flame of the Menorah at the grave of Chabad founder Rabbi Shneur Zalman Schneerson symbolizes the very spirit of Jewish life, which it is said will persist as long as the flame is burning.
