The Last Jew

Last Thursday we commemorated the 26th Yahrtzeit of the Rebbe.  As I reflected on the Rebbe’s life, I realized that while other leaders tried to accommodate the majority, the Rebbe was always concerned about the last individual that fell off the radar.

Whether a Jew in prison, or a traveler in Katmandu, the Rebbe would make sure that Chabad did not forget to bring the joy of each holiday to those that would otherwise be forgotten.

When he was once complimented for his concern for the most vulnerable souls, the Rebbe explained that there are many leaders in the Jewish community.  Each of them typically cares for their own group.   The definition of a Rebbe is someone that cares about every single Jew.
