Is Chabad a Cult?

Cult– A form of faith or belief that is based on unfounded commitment…based on personal feelings and emotions. If it is devoid of any rational foundation…then we have no choice but to condemn it as a cult.                                                                                                                                                        Dr. J. Immanuel Schochet

Chabad Chochma – Binah – Daas, all require us to question and investigate deeper.

Is it even possible that Chabad could be a cult?

Chabad is our very essence, yet many of us feel unqualified to respond when faced with opposition. Throughout the evening Rabbi Jacobson touched upon questions we had and clashing oppinions. He explained that sometimes a hug is the proper reaction, and at other times an answer may not even be necessary. Prior to responding we must assess what the actual difficulty is and if it stems from deeper issues. We must be aware of the type of reply being pursued. Rabbi Jacobson stayed late into the night to ensure we left with a firm understanding of the topic at hand.
