One of Rabbi Blech's most significant achievements was his role in securing the loan of precious Jewish manuscripts for exhibition in Israel after a personal meeting with the late Pope John Paul II.


He is currently involved in further negotiations for the return of precious Judaica held by the Vatican, which may prove to be of historic significance (The Rambam's seforim!).

In this week's episode, Rabbi Blech tells us about how The Lubavitch Rebbe made him a secret agent chabad Rabbi, his incredible stories with the Pope, how they found some of the missing items from the Beis Hamikdash and so much more.
