The Kahan family poses for a portrait, circa early 1950s. To the right is a young Reb Yoel Kahan, later to become the Rebbe’s chief Chozer. Standing next to him is his father, Reb Foleh Kahan, a survivor of Stalin’s Gulags, where he spent 10 years for the crime of practicing Yiddishkeit in the Soviet Union, and his sister, Mrs. Gitta Gansburg. Sitting in front is his mother, Mrs. Rivkah Kahan.
