The Chabad of Hackensack is inviting friends and followers to a lecture with bestselling author, as they commemorate the Yahrzeit of Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn of righteous memory.
The lecture, which will be a Zoom event due to the Covid-19 pandemic, will be presented by Rabbi Mendel Kalmenson, the bestselling author of “Positivity Bias”. Speaking about the event, Kalmenson said: “During the lecture, you will learn life-transforming lessons to help you lead a more positive life.”
Chabad, also known as Lubavitch, Habad and Chabad-Lubavitch, is an Orthodox Jewish Hasidic movement. Chabad is one of the world’s best-known Hasidic movements, particularly for its outreach activities. It is one of the largest Hasidic groups and Jewish religious organizations in the world.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory (1902-1994), the seventh leader in the Chabad-Lubavitch dynasty, is considered to have been the most phenomenal Jewish personality of modern times. To hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of sympathizers and admirers around the world, he was — and still is, despite his passing — “the Rebbe,” undoubtedly, the one individual more than any other singularly responsible for stirring the conscience and spiritual awakening of world Jewry.
The Hosts of this event, Chabad of Hackensack, is part of a global network of over 2,500 centers worldwide, providing a wide variety of educational, religious, and social services, according to the teachings of The Lubavitcher Rebbe, toward the goal of making the world a better, holier place. Their major aim is to provide a wide variety of educational and spiritual opportunities, including Torah classes and lectures, Shabbaton dinners, and an array of family and social activities. It’s a place where Traditional Jewish values are brought to life in a joyous, non-judgmental atmosphere.
Rabbi Mendel Kalmenson is the rabbi of Beit Baruch and executive director of Chabad of Belgravia, London, where he lives with his wife, Chana, and children.
Mendel was an editor at the Judaism Website—Chabad.org and is also the author of the popular books Seeds of Wisdom and A Time to Heal. His latest book is being released in June 2019, titled, “Positivity Bias: Practical Lessons for Positive Living based on the life and teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
Speaking about his book, Kalmenson said: ” In Positivity Bias, we learn that life is essentially good; that positive perception is applicable and accessible to all; that it derives from objective, rational insight, not subjective, wishful imagination, and that positive living is a matter of choice, not circumstance. An inspiring and life-enriching tapestry woven from hundreds of stories, letters, anecdotes, and vignettes—Positivity Bias highlights how the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, considered the most influential rabbi in modern history, taught us to see ourselves, others, and the world around us”
The book has received rave reviews from its readers. According to Rabbi Dr. Warren Goldstein, Chief Rabbi Of South Africa: “Through his new book, ‘Positivity Bias’, Rabbi Kalmenson brings a vital and energizing message to the Jewish world – a message of hope, positivity and optimism, which are deeply rooted in faith in God and faith in the Jewish future.
May the positivity and optimism which shines through on every page fill the hearts and souls of all.”
