Nearly 1,000 religious books have been rescued from the heavily damaged Chabad House in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Chabad House is located in the city's downtown, near the epicenter of the major Feb. 22 temblor that claimed more than 165 lives, including three Israelis. Days after the quake, a rescue worker, at risk to his own life, removed the Chabad center's two Torah scrolls.
