“Mo­ment of Si­lence” Re­plac­ing

The Jewish Voice - - PARSHA -

mo­ments of si­lence in schools since the early 1980’s.

This Rebbe is one of the most in­flu­en­tial fig­ures of all time, not only for the Jew­ish com­mu­nity but much of the rest of the world. He’s touched many peo­ple’s hearts with his kind­ness and de­ter­mi­na­tion to do good. His mis­sion was not only his own, but ev­ery­body’s. He en­cour­aged Jews to open Chabad houses all over the world, not only to en­cour­age more re­li­gious ob­ser­vance among Jews, but to al­low Jews to have a place to go when they needed help. Its al­ways been true that a Jew deal­ing with hunger can go to a Chabad to get a free, warm, meal. It’s not nec­es­sary for him to be re­li­gious or even dress in ap­pro­pri­ate at­tire, all he has to do is show up. The Rebbe was de­ter­mined to make Jews look at other Jews who lived dif­fer­ent lives from them with new eyes, to take a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. He en­cour­aged ac­cep­tance in the Jew­ish com­mu­nity among Jews so that ev­ery­one, re­li­gious and non-re­li­gious, may join to­gether as one na­tion.
