Description

Chabad, also known as Lubavitch, Habad and Chabad-Lubavitch, (Hebrew: ” ) is an Orthodox Jewish, Chasidic movement. Chabad is today one of the world’s best known Chasidic movements and is well known for its outreach. It is the largest Jewish religious organization in the world. Founded in 1755 by Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, the name “Chabad” (Hebrew: ) is a Hebrew acronym for Chochmah, Binah, Da’at ( , , ): “Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge”, which represent the intellectual underpinnings of the movement. The name “Lubavitch” is the Yiddish name for the originally Belorussian village Lyubavichi where the movement’s leaders lived for over 100 years. The Chabad movement represents an intellectual-mystical school of thought established and led by a dynasty of Hasidic rebbes. The movement was based in Lyubavichi (Lubavitch) for over a century, and then briefly centered in the cities of Rostov-on-Don, Riga, and Warsaw. From 1940[6] until the present day, the movement’s center has been in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. In 1951, Rabbi Meacham Mendel Shearson became the seventh Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch, and transformed it from a small Chasidic movement into the largest and most widespread Jewish movement in the world today. Thus Joshua conquered no less than 51 Canaanite kings. Yet, the children of Israel were to constitute one people, governed by one G-d and one Torah; one nation in one land. Our history is so unique and so different from the histories of other peoples that it cannot be treated in the same way. It can be clearly understood in the light of one factor only: Divine Providence. In His infinite kindness and wisdom G-d sent us, in the most crucial periods of our history, men of valor and vision, divinely inspired Judges, and prophets, whose leadership and inspiration has never ceased to guide us through the ages. Without this providential guardianship our people would not have survived its infancy. Without proper understanding of this factor, our history is unintelligible. The author has endeavored to give due emphasis to this basic principle of our history. The adult reader and student of this work will not fail to see it and, it is hoped, be inspired by it. As to the younger student of the Yeshivah, TalmudTorah and Hebrew School, it will be up to the teacher to properly underscore this viewpoint in dealing with every event or phase of our history.
