Weekly Letter: 770’s Handmade Aron Kodesh

This week, we present a letter from the Rebbe in which he thanks the donor of a new Aron Kodesh for 770, who personally handcrafted it from wood and gifted it in honor of the Rebbe’s 72nd birthday in 1974. The Aron Kodesh still stands in its place today, over 40 years later. The letter, written originally in English, is from the archives of the Rebbe’s personal trusted secretary, Rabbi Nissan Mindel.
