Known to many simply as "the Rebbe" Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson assumed leadership of the Chabad Lubavitch movement in 1950, when it consisted of a small group of European refugees struggling to rebuild their lives after the war. Over the next four decades, the Rebbe established a worldwide network of educational, social, and religious institutions. This course coincides with the 20th anniversary of the Rebbe's passing and addresses the following questions:
What are the Rebbe's central teachings and contributions to Judaism and society? What was his understanding of the human being and what were his aspirations for humanity? What accounts for the continued success of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement? And most importantly, how can we apply these insights toward living a more purposeful life?
