That's a 360 of a big hand when looking down.

It took a year, but the Tanya printed in the Falklands has finally arrived!

Thanks @bgfbgfbhgf for undertaking the entire project and seeing it to completion!

What does this mean in practice? Someone prints a pdf and gives it to a printer to bind in a specific location?

How it starts is you speak to a Rabbi by the name of Rabbi Shalom Jacobson who has been doing this for almost 50 years, he is in charge of the Tanya library in NY and he checks to see if a Tanya was ever printed there, so far the Tanya has been printed in over 7,300 cities and towns that Jews are living,
Then he sets up a PDF with a new front page and title page (depending on where it's being printed it might have to be in a different layout)

You have 2 choices on how you can print it, 1) yourself with a computer and printer, that can take many hours as for an official printing you have do at least one hundred Tanya's which is about 7,500 pages double sided, or 2) you can give it to a printer in that city and they can print it for you,

We did not have enough time in Stanley or that we were even going to Stanley! So when we got there while people were looking around town I was on a search for a printer
The story is long so I'll leave it for another time but after almost a year we have a Tanya from the Falkland islands!

An official printing of 100 copies? Where is that done?

Really cool. Did they bind it there as well or just the printing?

How the sausage gets made
Have you or anyone you know gone caving?
Have you traveled anywhere really different or exotic for Chanukah?

Please pm me if you don't mind answering a few questions.

Thanks!
Does Antarctica count?

Though it took two years to arrange and the challenges were numerous, including a 25 hour fast on the 10th of Tevet while passing through the infamous Drake Passage, one of the roughest stretches of ocean in the world, by all accounts, the trip exceeded expectations.
Sorry, this sentence is driving me crazy.
Otherwise it's a great write up!

I'm a little worried about the woman who may have disregarded safety to light an open fire on a cruise ship.

Well, I, for one, don't see why, for any reason at all, anyone, not least an illiterate chossid, would have an issue with that sentence, but to each his own.
