Ed note–as just one indicator as to how far both the US and the ‘Christian” west inare off the ranch terms of sanity, remember that the “Schneerson” being referred to here by Obama was an avowed Jewish racist/extremist/supremacist who regularly referred to Gentiles as animals, beasts in human form and every other unimaginably hateful expression of Jewish Zionist narcissism. Were it not bad enough that Obama is championing this man who undoubtedly is burning in a hell of his own making because of his views and teachings over the years, Schneerson was awarded with a congressional medal years ago.
WASHINGTON (JTA) — President Obama said Education and Sharing Day marked the legacy of hope for a “brighter future”of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, who launched the initiative.
“On Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A., we celebrate the example set by Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who dedicated his life to improving education and fostering goodwill for all people,” Obama said in a statement Thursday proclaiming April 15 as the 33rd commemoration of the event instituted by Schneerson in 1978. “His legacy continues to inspire individuals to carry forward his effort to build a brighter future. Each year, Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A., reminds us of our obligation to create opportunities for a better tomorrow — life lessons we pass on to all our children.”
Schneerson was an early advocate of a Department of Education separate from the former Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
