A SALUTE TO LUBAVITCH
We Salute Rabbi Menachem Mendel
Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe,
on the occasion of the Forthcoming
Celebration on "Yud Sh'vat" (Sh'vat
10, coinciding with January 22), of a
Quarter Century of His Leadership.
the man who has reached out and touched the hearts and inspired the
souls of our brothers and sisters across the globe, Jewish men and women of every
conceivable shade of belief and observance, rich and poor, old and young alike.
We Salute the Rebbe for his dedication to the ideals of the Baal Shem Tov,
never giving up on any Jew as "lost," for sparking a renaissance of Torah-learning and
a revolution in awareness of identity amongst tens of thousands of Jewish youth around
the Rebbe for his constant support of the morale of Israel's fighting
men in their hour of need and his sterling efforts for our people in the Holy Land, for his
settlements, Yeshivof, vocational schools and emissaries throughout the length and
breadth of the land ; for his staunch and unflinching stand on behalf of Israel's safety
and secure borders.
the Rebbe, who, in the words of Michigan's Governor (in his procla-
mation declaring January 1975 as "LUBAVITCH MONTH") " . . . has received accolades
for his great humanitarian and spiritual accomplishments by the President of the United
States and by the governors, senators, congressmen and mayors of our major states
and cities . ."
We echo the sentiments of the governor that the Rebbe " . . be tendered the
congratulations and respectful best wishes of the State of Michigan for a quarter-
century, of outstanding nobility of leadership and great achievements in helping maintain
and preserve the highest ethical, moral and spiritual standards 'of our fair country."
on all members of our community to attend the series of "HASSIDIC
HAPPENING" concerts honoring the 25th leadership anniversary — in Detroit (on Janu-
ary 7th at Ford Auditorium), under the chairmanship of David Hermelin and Harold
Beznos and honoring Nathan P. Rossen — in Flint (on January 8th sponsored by the
Flint Jewish Community Council), in East Lansing (on January 9th at Engineering Hal),
and-in Ann Arbor (on January 12th at the Mendlesohn Theatre).
on all women and girls — even the very young — to respond to the
Rebbe's current urgent' campaign to kindle the Shabbos and Yomtov candles every
Friday and on the eve of the festivals ; the girls to light one candle, before the mother
and with a B'racha.
with pride that a new, major institution and undertaking will,
B'ezras Hashem, be founded in Michigan in the course of the year' in honor of the 25th
leadership anniversary (with details to be announced at a later date) and we call on
all members of Michigan's Jewish community to support Lubavitch in these and all other
efforts — especially those on behalf of our alienated youth.
