A MESSAGE FROM
DR. GEORGE DEAN

The Chabad-Lubavitch people are not what you
might think. They are not mystics with their heads
in the clouds, but pragmatists with both feet
planted firmly on the ground. Their emphasis is
students — not statistics, making Jews more
Jewish — not making surveys, brotherly love —
not budgets.

My own personal experience with the organization
has shown it to be a powerful force in bringing
families together. Many of our sons and daughters
stray into strange and alien paths — which is a
matter of deep concern to me as a Jew and as a
family physician. Lubavitch brings them back into
active and observant Judaism, intelligently, gently
and with great tolerance and understanding.

GOLDA MEIR

Mrs. Stern said her sister
knew she could not tolerate
torture and pain and was
concerned that if she was
kidnapped and tortured she
would have revealed secrets
and would have said some-
thing she should not have
revealed or said.
In order to avoid this,
Mrs. Meir kept the poison
pills at her disposal which
she could swallow and end
her life instantly, Mrs.
Stern said.
