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.
