Shturem's Meir Alfasi
 Tanya Warms Coldest Spot on Earth 

He may not stand up and be counted at the Kinus roll call, but our very own Meir Alfasi has once again made a Kiddush Shem Lubavitch.  Meir travels the world with his trusty camera, and makes sure to conquer each spot for the Rebbe by printing a Tanya there.  No place is too remote or diffucult to access for Meir when fulfilling the Rebbe's horoas are at stake. Here's a breathtaking gallery of his latest kibush - Antartica.
