A House Is Built In Israel
For The Lubavitcher Rebbe

26630 Southfield Rd.
Southfield, MI 48076
(between 101/2 & 11 Mile)

Though the company still retains the Farmer Jack name, it has switched from Paul Borman to corporate giant A & P.

New York (JTA) — He'll
soon have his own house in
Israel, but the Lubavitcher
rebbe will not be making
aliyah —that is, not until
the Messiah brings every
Jew to Eretz Yisrael.
When real estate de-
velopers who are followers of
Rabbi Menachem Mendel
Schneerson recently decided
to expand Kfar Chabad, a
1,000-family community
located between Ben-Gurion
airport and Tel Aviv, they
came to the rebbe for a bless-
ing, and with a petition call-
ing on him to reveal the fact
that he is the Messiah.
They also asked the 89-
year-old Chasidic leader if
he would like them to build a
house for him in Kfar
Chabad.
The rebbe said yes.
But the rebbe did not mean

that he would get on a plane
the next day for the Holy
Land, explain his followers.
Rather, he is expecting the
imminent arrival of the
Messiah to bring us all to
Eretz Yisrael.
The initiator of the rebbe's
new house, Zosha Rivkin,
reportedly tried to convince
Rabbi Schneerson twice in
the past to have a house
built for him in the Lubavit-
ch enclave, only succeeding
recently.
The rebbe was overheard
telling the developers, dur-
ing their visit to the
movement's headquarters in
the Crown Heights section of
Brooklyn, that "many peo-
ple have houses in more
than one country."
His own ancestors are
among them: The second
Lubavitcher rebbe, Dov Ber

Schneuri, known as the Mit-
tler rebbe, purchased a
building in Hebron in the
early part of the 19th cen-
tury. And the Mittler rebbe's
nephew and son-in-law,
Menachem Mendel Schneer-
son, known as the Tzemach
Tzedek, built a synagogue in

He is expecting
the Messiah.

the Jewish quarter of what
is now the Old City of
Jerusalem in about 1850.
But the only member of
the Lubavitch dynasty ever
to have visited Israel was
the previous rebbe, Yosef
Yitzhok Schneersohn, the
current rebbe's father-in-
law, who was there for a few
days in the summer of 1929,
on his way from Russia to
the United States.
