The Secret of Chabad: Inside the World’s Most Successful Jewish Movement

You’ll love it if:  You always wanted to know the secret of the success of Chabad and were afraid to ask.

In The Secret of Chabad: Inside the World’s Most Successful Jewish Movement, Rabbi Eliezrie takes readers deep into the Chabad world, asking the crucial question about how a small Chassidic group in Brooklyn has become a Jewish powerhouse. The book reveals the inner workings of Chabad, the internal struggle in focusing a historic insular Chassidic community outwards, and its management style of entrepreneurship. It explores the inner lives of Chabad Rabbis & Rebbitzens who raise their children outside the classical religious community.


Rabbi Eliezrie, a veteran Chabad Shliach in California, is a member of the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency; he serves as Chabad’s “Secretary of State”. As president of the Rabbinical Council of Orange County and Long Beach, he serves on the board of the Jewish Federation of Orange County. He is active in local and national Jewish affairs. Rabbi Eliezrie serves as the Chabad’s National Laison to Jewish Federations of North America. He is a noted speaker and author.



“Rabbi Eliezrie has given us a gift by putting his worldly experience and mature perspective into this book.” – Michele Justic, The 5 Towns Jewish Times
