Danger in Iran and Other Stories of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Gedolei Yisroel.
Mass demonstrations plagued Iran for over a year. When the ruler of Iran the Shah - was overthrown in 1979, and Ayatollah Khomeini took control, the formerly friendly relations between the U.S. and Iran deteriorated. As the world watched in fear, more than 50 Americans were taken hostage at the U.S. embassy in Tehran.
After lengthy negotiations, Iran agreed to allow a group of religious leaders to visit the hostages. During these rapidly unfolding events, under the guidance of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the chief Rabbi of Mexico found himself standing face-to-face with Khomeini himself..
Through the stories in this book, in settings as far-flung as post-war Romania to Communist Russia to 1950s New Zealand, we learn about the worldwide impact of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Gedolei Yisroel.
The Rebbe met, corresponded with, and advised countless Rabbonim and Jewish leaders at the helm of communities around the world. The stories in this book give the reader a glimpse into the broad leadership of the Rebbe, his unwavering concern for the spiritual and physical well-being of every Jew, and his far-reaching effect on world Jewry.
