‘Secret of Chabad’ author to headline June 12 event

Rabbi David Eliezrie, author of the National Jewish Book Awards finalist “The Secret of Chabad,” will be the featured speaker on Tuesday, June 12, 7:30 p.m. at the Wyndham Hotel, 1111 Route 73 North, Mount Laurel. This will be an evening of tribute, commemorating the Yartzeit (day of passing) of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

The event is open to the entire community free of charge.

Event sponsors are welcome.

Rabbi Mendy Mangel, director of Chabad of Camden and Burlington Counties, noted that “this is a rare opportunity to get an insider’s view on the emergence of Chabad as a pacesetter in Jewish life.”

“The Secret of Chabad” has received glowing reviews from many Jewish leaders and personalities, including talk-show host Dennis Prager, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, and attorney Alan Dershowitz, who wrote: “I have often urged the Harvard Business School to teach the remarkable success of the Chabad movement as a case study in innovation, commitment, and determination. ‘The Secret of Chabad’ is that case study written by a brilliant insider who really understands…”

Eliezrie will explore how a small group in Brooklyn became a widespread international movement with 4,000 Chabad couples and over 3,000 educational, religious and cultural centers worldwide.

Eliezrie is a veteran Chabad rabbi in Yorba Linda, California. He is Chabad’s representative to major Jewish organizations in the US and Israel. Within Chabad, he coordinates humanitarian relief aid and serves on committees for the International Chabad Conference and the Jewish Learning Institute. In his home state, Eliezrie is the president of the Rabbinical Council of Orange County and Long Beach, and a board member of the Jewish Federation and Family Services of Orange County. He forged a Federation-Chabad partnership that has become a national model of cooperation and success. His opinions and articles have appeared in many publications, including The Los Angeles Times, The Jerusalem Post, and The Times of Israel.
