The Russian Influence 

Many wonder where Chabad takes its strength, dedication and unwavering commitment to enhancing Judaism in the far flung corners of the world. 

Russia could rightfully be called the cradle of the Chabad movement for that is not only where it originated but the seventy years of communist oppression against Jewish life, was the “boot camp” for the Chabad Chassidim.

By the time the Rebbe embarked on the campaign to send emissaries all over the world, there were scores of Chassidim who were ready to join ‘The Rebbe’s Army’.
