Acts of Kindness
People often criticize Chabad for their strict theology and ritual demands. Though trained as a Conservative rabbi, I have
attended Chabad services since retirement. While I disagree with their theology, and with separate seating, I have found them
among the kindest of all Jewish denominations. They will guarantee a minyan for mourners in almost any location in the world.
When traveling we always find a Chabad house for a gracious, hospitable Shabbat meal. They visit Jews in prison and hospitals,
and thus I find them among the kindest groups of all Jewish denominations. (Not to mention the inspirational davening in most
Chabad minyanim). Being open to new ideas, I love attending Chabad services, even though I do not call myself Chabad.
