|About Chabad of Beverlywood
Chabad-Lubavitch is a philosophy, a movement, and an organization. The word Chabad is a Hebrew acronym for the three intellectual faculties of: chachmah-wisdom, binah-comprehension and da‘at-knowledge. Following its inception 250 years ago, the Chabad-Lubavitch swept through Russia and spread in surrounding countries as well. Eventually the philosophy of Chabad-Lubavitch and its adherents reached almost every corner of the world and affected almost every facet of Jewish life.
Today 4,000 full-time emissary families apply 250 year-old principles and philosophy to direct more than 3,300 institutions (and a workforce that numbers in the tens of thousands) dedicated to the welfare of the Jewish people worldwide. It is considered to be the most dynamic force in Jewish life today.
The movement is guided by the teachings of its leaders who expounded upon the most refined and delicate aspects of Jewish mysticism, creating a corpus of study thousands of books strong. They personified the age-old, Biblical qualities of piety and leadership. And they concerned themselves not only with Chabad-Lubavitch, but with the totality of Jewish life, spiritual and physical. No person or detail was too small or insignificant for their love and dedication.
