CHABAD OF KOREA TO OPEN LIBRARY AT THE NEW JCC

By , Seoul, Korea

Chabad of Korea is planning to open the country's first Jewish library.

Rabbi Osher Litzman, who opened the country's first Chabad House in Seoul in April, 2008 said he was moved to open a library, and dedicate it to Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, after learning that the bookshelves were the only part of Mumbai's Chabad House not destroyed in the terrorist attacks.

The library is scheduled to open in time for Shavuot. "It will be a source of knowledge, information and enlightenment to the country's growingly active Jewish community," said Litzman.
