On Zichron Yerushalaim
This book documents the travels of the emissary of the Hassidic Chabadnik, R' Shne'or Zalman, son of Menachem Mendel, to many countries in the middle of the 19th century. The purpose of his mission was to gather contributions in order to build Chabad synagogues in Jerusalem and Hebron. His trips to Babylonia (=present-day Iraq), India, Europe – and his audience with Queen Victoria evoke admiration. This album is complemented by maps, documents, photos, illustrations and more.
