When the Rebbe passed away 20 years ago, many predicted the eventual demise of this leaderless Chassidic movement. How could it survive without its life-force, it's charismatic and loving leader who impacted his followers so personally and intensely? 20 years later, Chabad is stronger than ever. What kind of derech eretz did the Rebbe model?
My guest, Rabbi Tuvia Bolton of Kfar Chabad in Israel, shares beautiful stories of the Rebbe and his keen sense of treating every Jew with utmost respect and dignity. Our conversation left me with a deeper understanding and appreciation of this incredible Rebbe, in whose presence I was several times at the Lubavitch headquarters in Crown Heights, NY.
Perhaps this Tuesday, we will take time from our busy day and reflect on this great gift from God, a sensitive and compassionate Rebbe who outreach is unparalleled.
