Our Inspiration

“The Rebbe,” Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of blessed memory, had an unconditional love for all people. He made everyone feel that they belonged. With a warm smile that would heal every aching heart, the Rebbe was always available to offer counsel and blessing, comfort and hope to everyone he encountered.

The core of the Rebbe’s teachings is that none of us are complete unless all of us are included. It is this concept that motivates the Friendship Circle.
