Laws and customs pertaining to Bar Mitzvah and Tephilin, along with Bar Mitzvah sermon in the Judeo-Farsi dialect as spoken by the Bucharian Jewish communities. The fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, R. Shalom Dov Ber Schneerson (the Rasha’b) selected R. Avraham Chaim Noeh (1890-1954) to travel from Jerusalem to distant Bucharia to serve as Rabbi in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, in place of his uncle R. Shlomo Leib Eliezrov. After changing his family name of Noeh to Mendlow, he taught himself Farsi in order to more successfully disseminate Torah. In later years he won renown as a Halachic decisor.
