Rabbi Menachem Schneerson’s Legacy – a new episode of the Religion & Ethics Newsweekly aired nationally on over 275 PBS stations and in New York on Sunday, August 31st.
It includes the interviews with Joseph Telushkin, Rabbi Chaim Schochet, Rabbi Shea and Baila Hecht and Rabbi Berel Bell.
The show also featured the Jewish Summer Fellowship (JSF), which hosted young men and women from college campuses across the United States and countries around the world.
Nestled in the New York countryside, the Jewish Summer Fellowship is a six-week summer study program that provides college and graduate students with the opportunity to explore Judaism in a warm and invigorating environment, taste from a wellspring of wisdom, meet other students from around the world and enjoy the great outdoors.
The JSF has attracted the attention of the PBS channel, as part of a larger story they were doing on the Rebbe’s legacy and impact twenty years after his passing. They were amazed at the idea of young middle class and affluent secular men and women being influenced by Chabad Lubavitch and yiddishkeit twenty years after gimmel Tamuz.
The shooting crew spent an entire day at the program joining classes, meals and programming, while interviewing faculty and students.
I spy Motty Schochet. The A-list bochur of 770!
The ways you both reach out are true examples of what it is to live life as a Frum Jew especially for those you have helped who had no prior knowledge or direction.

Rebbetzin Baila u are truly inspirational this is amazing thanks for the being you!!!!!!! You save souls!!!
We Love you.
Nice to see you giving a Tanya Class.
What difference dose it make to anybody life ..if the rebbe is moshiach or not there is no real difference in our daily work to serve the obeshter in knowing if the rebbe is or is not obviously every chossid has a hunch …but that has no relevance to action. action is knowing that we have to bring moshiach and do something about that more acts in the realm of goodness and kindness (the rebbes words to cnn) so please stop making issues…. now please dont just have feelings and just ise ur heart use ur head for a moment… Read more »

Mendy Pruss. You are thus nationally famous.
Very inspiring work!
Good luck in future endeavors!
“there are some that don’t see the Rebbe as Moshiach”????
find me those “some”, they are “dor sh’mini” and not chassidim of the Rebbe.
every chosid that follows the the Rebbe feels that he’s Moshiach, the way we show it is differently.
