Chabad's American Era: Modern People in Hasidic Garb?

The Rebbe turned Chabad into an international movement that transcended the narrower denominational interests of other orthodox Jewish groups in America. Wexler correctly centers our attention on the Rebbe's social vision, and its strong universalist component. This should not be confused with pluralism, nor misconstrued as imperialism, for it was shared with love rather than imposed with power. In addition to reviewing many aspects of the Rebbe's social activism, this talk also explores some ways that the Rebbe's positions and aspirations were supported and shared by Rabbi Moshe Feinstein.
