The World Art News presents one of the Holiest Jewish Relics that is known to exist in a private collection – the Second Chair of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772 – 1810).

With the Star of David in the front, a hypnotic Jewish Rabbi in the center, and a Yiddish inscription of Reb Nachman’s name on the back, this chair is stunning in its craftsmanship and Judaic beauty. The aura of history radiates from this rare artifact.

Reb Nachman remains among the most quoted Hasidic masters and to this day tens of thousands of Jews from all over the world travel to his burial site as part of their annual pilgrimage.
