In 1988, when Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, was sitting shiva for his wife, Chaya Mushka, West Coast Director of Chabad, Rabbi Shlomo Cunin, decided that the best way to comfort the mourner was to show him that there was still hope for the future. So Cunin purchased a property on Pico Boulevard and flew to New York to present the property deed and a photograph to the Rebbe. "This property," Cunin told the Rebbe, "is going to be the site of Bais Chaya Mushka [the House of Chaya Mushka], a Chabad school for girls."
