He later went on shlichus himself, to Kaliningrad, formerly Konigsberg, a center for Haskala. He is gathering neshamos, one by one, and making a difference in the lives of many young people.

In an exclusive interview with the Beis Moshiach Magazine, Chassidic conductor and composer R’ Moshe Mordechai (“Mona”) Rosenblum speaks about his childhood (“My mother gave me an accordion when I was four and a half years old”), the uniqueness of Chabad niggunim (“Every time I hear the Alter Rebbe’s niggunim, I feel as if I’m listening to them for the first time”), producing CDs of Chabad niggunim (“It’s slow and painstaking work, as it’s not easy to put the emotions into distinctive vessels”), and his family connection with the Alter Rebbe.
If the Torah only had emphasized that Z’vulun will be a supporter of Torah it would not have conveyed and captured the essence of this blessing.
