The shluchim are not “Chabad”, they are the outreach arm of the Chabad movement, which also comprises many thousands of people k”y who are not shluchim in the official sense.

While there is (as always in articles about us) some misinformation, he is, sadly, rather accurate and glib about quite a few of our problems. Sigh. Ad mosai????

I will not surprise anyone when I say that Haaretz is notoriously and vociferiously anti-religious and has been since the founding of the state of Israel- indeed it was the official paper of the “Jewish Agency”. I am not a Lubavitcher, I am one of those “ultra, ultra, ultra-orthodox anti-Zionists” they love to hate so much in Eretz Yisroel, so I read the article with great interest to see what Haaretz had to say about Chabad, the great American phenomenon.

yup for whatever reasons Haaratez is well known as a lefty paper akin to NYTimes vechulu and very very seldom have nice things to say about frumkeit altogether, so I too was rather surprised after reading this piece.
