New Israeli stamp honors Chabad and American-Jewish children

The Israeli Postal Authority announces the issuing of six interesting new stamps - including one honoring Chabad, one of former President Ezer Weizman, and four drawn by American Jewish children.

Slated to go on sale on Feb. 28, the Chabad-Lubavitch postage stamp marks the first time that the Israeli government accords an honor of this type to a religious movement on official legal tender. The stamp, valued at 2.50 shekels, depicts the movement's Brooklyn headquarters - the building known as "770" because of its location at 770 Eastern Parkway - as a source of waves of light.

A set of four stamps, in a series known as Children of America Paint Israel, will be issued on May 28.
