Detail Description

A 100 Dollar Bill (dated 1985) given by the Rebbe of Habad, R. Menahem Mendel Schneerson, to Saul Shimon Deutsch to participate in the annual yurzeit dinner for the memory of Yankel Rosenbaum. Early on the morning of August 20, 1991, a group of approximately 20 young black men surrounded Yankel Rosenbaum, a 29-year-old Jewish University of Melbourne student in the United States conducting research for his doctorate. They stabbed him several times in the back and beat him severely, fracturing his skull. Before being taken to the hospital, Rosenbaum identified 16-year-old Lemrick Nelson Jr. as his assailant in a line-up shown to him by the police. Rosenbaum died later that night because the doctor didn't notice a stab wound in his chest. Nelson was charged with murder as an adult; he was acquitted at trial. Later he was convicted in federal court of violating Rosenbaum's civil rights and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Nelson eventually admitted that he had stabbed Rosenbaum.

R. Menahem Mendel Schneerson (1902–1994), was the son and pupil of R. Levi Isaac Schneersohn of Yekaterinoslav, and son-in-law of R. Joseph Isaac. After the death of his father-in-law in 1950 he became the seventh successive leader of Lubavich Hasidism. Under his direction, its institutions expanded, new ones were founded, and the number of adherents throughout the world increased to over 25,000. He encouraged hundreds of young men to go out to Jewish communities everywhere to establish contact with the Jewish masses and bring them back to Orthodoxy. The Lubavich Youth Organization, which he founded in 1955, has continued to play a vital role among Jewish college students. Regional offices were established around the globe, and Kefar Habad served as the Lubavicher headquarters in Israel. Under R. Schneerson's direction the influence of Lubavich spread far beyond the hasidic community and penetrated the mainstream of Jewish life in many parts of the world. R. Schneerson, while not belonging to any formal rabbinical or political organization, was frequently consulted on Jewish problems and issues, tens of thousands flocked to see him annually and receive his blessings. by the Rebbe of Habad.
