Rebbe Cards

Bearing the images of great Torah sages, these cards are popular with children in Hasidic communities and represent a direct adaptation of the juvenile pastime of collecting sports trading cards from an amusing and entertaining hobby to a religious and pedagogic tool. Featured here is Rabbi Menahem Schneerson (1902-1994), leader of the Lubavitch Hasidic Community.
