When Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994) became the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Chabad-Lubavitch consisted of a small group of Chasidim recovering from near annihilation in the Holocaust. During his forty years of leadership, Rabbi Schneerson transformed Chabad into a global movement marked by extensive outreach activities and a close knit network of Chabad centers stationed around the world. The Lubavitcher Rebbe embodied a lifelong mission to better the world. Far surpassing the role of teacher he was at once a scientific mind and faithful believer; educational innovator and social activist; spiritual guide and master network builder. His passionate devotion to education, social change, and acts of charity and kindness inspired countless people to embrace spirituality in their daily lives. He motivated others to contemplate their mission in the world and aspire toward a meaningful life.
