Connecticut Declares “Day of Goodness and Kindness” in Honor of Famous Rabbi
Connecticut issued a proclamation declaring June 22 a statewide “Day of Goodness and Kindness” marking the 18th anniversary of the Rabbi Manachem M. Schneerson’s death.
“The trademark of Chabad, based on the guidance of the Rebbe, is belief in the inherent goodness of the world and its inhabitants. Hence, every person is worthy of attention, love, and knowledge,” reads a proclamation signed by Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy.
Rabbi Schneerson, the 7th and final Rebbe of the Chabad-Lubavitch Hassidic movement, passed away on the third day of the Hebrew month Tammuz in 1994, which falls out on the night of June 22 this year.
Chabad has centers in 23 Connecticut communities.
