    Daniel Freelander is leaving his comfortable berth as senior vice president at the Union for Reform Judaism — the organization for which he has worked in various capacities for 39 years — to become president of the World Union for Progressive Judaism.

    In an interview he gave the New Jersey Jewish Standard, he outlines his goals, and describes what he sees as Chabad’s strong points in outreach in the Former Soviet Union:

    “The ubiquitousness of Chabad in eastern Europe means that they identify many Jews who want a strong Jewish identity but they can’t live within its strictures. We don’t have Chabad’s resources. Chabad is brilliant in opening the door and making people feel welcome, but they have an angle. They know what kind of Jew they are trying to build.”

      Why mention and give exposure to a person who according to the Rebbe is a min and apikorus. A why quote something he said out of context? Don’t you see he is saying Chabad is everywhere and smart but not for everyone? The Reform movement a “progressive” organization can fill the need of the more modern and educated population, Rachmono Litzlan. These people and their movement is cancer to Yiddishkeit.
