A Visionary in Our Time: The Exceptional Leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe

The past century has been fraught with unprecedented challenges facing our people, and it was precisely at this juncture that called for extraordinary leadership. Rabbi Yosef Y. Jacobson explores three central themes in the Rebbe’s visionary leadership. (Recorded at a tribute commemorating the Rebbe’s twentieth yahrtzeit at Park East Synagogue)

I wish the Jewish people in my community of Corvallis, Oregon, could hear these wise words. I wish they care about all Jews, instead of the ones who have money. I wish they would stop making fun of Chassidic Jews. I attended the local synagogue twice, and after being asked what I did for a living, and explaining that I am disabled with PTSD and chronic pain, everyone turned away and ignored me completely. It was so bad that these Jews were competing over which veterinarian they used--the best veterinarian was the most expensive one!
These Jews also believe that Jewish people who don't go to synagogue are not Jewish. And that German Jews are superior. When the local university's Jewish center was destroyed, not one Jew spoke up. The newspaper didn't cover this, and I, alone, even though I struggle with disability, went to a newsroom meeting at the paper and asked Why?
Yet, two months later, a tiny fire occurred at the local mosque, and the Rabbi held a peace vigil for Muslims. Reply

Your comments pain me because there is so much truth to them. My husband insists we continue at a Reform temple, where I learn nothing, but Chabad is my congregation! Reply
