Chabad Worldwide Mission and History:

 

Simply put, Chabad's mission is to nurture the special relationship that every human being has with G‑d and to provide them with everything needed for that relationship to blossom. Chabad reaches out to others with acts of goodness and kindness. A community-based nonprofit organization whose efforts are rooted in traditional Jewish values. Chabad’s Community Outreach programs help those in need and Chabad's Community Programming provides quality community programs to all regardless of background or belief and Chabad's Community .

 

'Chabad' is a Hebrew acronym for 'Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge. Founded in 1772 by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, Chabad promotes the mystical, traditional, legal and social principles of the Torah — while using modern methods and technology for education, community outreach, crisis intervention, and other social services. 

 

Chabad has consistently been at the forefront of Jewish education and community activism. The work of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe who assumed leadership of the movement in 1950, is legendary. Motivated by a profound love for humanity and spurred by boundless optimism, the Rebbe lifted the global Jewish community from the ashes of the Holocaust and launched an unprecedented range of Jewish institutions, outreach programs and social services.

 

Around the globe, tens of thousands of the Rebbe's emissaries, workers and volunteers continue his mission to create a world of goodness, kindness and G‑dliness. For more info click here
