The seventh Lubavitcher rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, was one of the most important Jewish leaders of the 20th century. He took a relatively small hassidic group centered in Brooklyn and built a worldwide empire with influence far beyond its numbers.

His followers were so devoted that many believed that he was, in fact, the Messiah and could not accept the fact that he died a natural death.
