Rabbi Jacob Joseph Schneursohn, the Lubawitscher Rebbe who is now on a visit in New York, is the object of an attack published against him in the “Comsomolskaya Pravda.” The Communist youth organ accuses the Rabbi of organizing “crazy anti-Soviet propaganda abroad” and keeping up illegal connections with agents in Russia.
