CT - Gov. Malloy Asks Connecticut Residents To Practice Acts Of Kindness In Honor Of Lubavitcher Rebbe
HARTFORD — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is urging Connecticut residents to practice acts of kindness in honor of a late Jewish leader.
Malloy signed an official state proclamation this week dedicating Friday as a Day of Goodness and Kindness. Friday marks the 18th anniversary of the death of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, a leader of the Chabad movement in Orthodox Judaism.
The proclamation states how a central tenet of Schneerson's teaching is that every single positive act, no matter how small, "contributes to a better, more perfect world."
There are 23 full-time Chabad Houses, a type of Jewish community center, throughout Connecticut.
