About "The Secret of Chabad":

Considered one of the most influential movements in modern Judaism, writers have speculated for decades about the unparalleled success of Chabad Lubavitch. In “The Secret of Chabad,” Rabbi David Eliezrie depicts the events, philosophies, and personalities that have made Chabad Lubavitch a worldwide phenomenon. From his unique style, weaving together narrative and fact, history and philosophical insight, interviews with Shluchim and Chabad leaders from across the globe, and personal recollection, emerges a world rich in tradition and the enormous love for fellow Jews that is embodied by the Shluchim. In this book, Rabbi Eliezrie combines the insider's perspective of a long-time Chabad shaliach with the storytelling flair of a prolific writer.

After reading the Secret of Chabad you will never see your local Chabad rabbi in quite the same way. He and his remarkable wife will be more real - and therefore, even more remarkable." -Dennis Prager

"I have found Chabad, almost everywhere I have gone in the world. This book is the remarkable story of how a small Chassidic group reaches out to Jews all over with love and purpose. David Eliezrie takes us deep inside the Chabad world for an extraordinary view ... All over the world, 4,000 Chabad shluchim are doing good deeds, educating people, taking care of children, providing opportunities to approach Judaism in a positive way. They turn up everywhere. The Secret of Chabad tells us what makes these dedicated men and women tick." -Senator Joseph I. Lieberman
