History Biographical
The Lubavitch movement began in 18th century Russia, and was founded in Montreal in 1941. This Hasidic group is concerned mainly with study and religion, and as such they provide outreach to the Jewish community. This consists of educational and recreational programs to disseminate information on Judaism, particularly Chabad's Orthodox Judaism as propounded by the Lubavitcher Rebbe. They sponsor philanthropic activities, social programs, and engage in fund-raising. They established a Yeshiva and various "Beit Chabad" homes in Montreal.
