DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO CHABAD!
ONE OF OUR CONTRIBUTORS RECEIVED THIS LETTER TODAY, REPRESENTING WHAT WE VIEW AS SHEER AND UTTER HYPOCRISY.
WE ASK, WE PLEAD, THAT YOU PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO CHABAD.
THERE REALLY IS NO TELLING TO WHOM THE MONEY IS BEING DELIVERED AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE THE MONEY IS BEING USED. 2.3M HAS ALREADY BEEN “LOANED” TO PLATINUM PARTNERS AND THE GREAT PHILANTHROPISTS OF THE CHABAD COMMUNITY….
WHERE ELSE ARE YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS GOING? DO YOU REALLY KNOW FOR CERTAIN?
WE BELIEVE THAT YOUR DONATED MONEY IS LINING THE POCKETS OF THE CORRUPT, BEING USED TO COVER UP THE SECRETS OF SEXUAL ABUSE, DRUG ABUSE AND DEPRESSION, EPIDEMICS WITHIN THE CHABAD COMMUNITY.
WE ARE CONVINCED THAT THE MONEY WILL MAKE THE GRAND RABBIS VERY WEALTHY.
WE DO NOT BELIEVE THAT MUCH, IF ANYTHING AT ALL, WILL BE USED TO HELP THE POOR.

Erev Yom Kippur, 5777 • October 11, 2016
A few hours before the onset of Yom Kippur each year, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, would enter the synagogue for prayer, holding a bag of coins. The tables were covered with scores, perhaps hundreds, of charity plates, representing an array of causes, from food for the poor and assistance for needy brides, to schools and mitzvah campaigns and more.
Despite his impossibly tight schedule, the Rebbe would deliberately and carefully place coins into every plate, taking great care not to skip a single one. Each represented a community or an individual who needed help, materially or spiritually.
In his urgent desire to help each individual, the Rebbe did not consider even one of them to be insignificant.

Emulating this extraordinary example, when we dig deep into our own resources to fill the plates of others, we encourage G-d to throw open His bank account of abundant blessings to each of us, to be judged with mercy and compassion for a truly happy, healthy and sweet year. And G-d, we know, has plenty to give.
• • •
At Chabad.org, where millions regularly turn to fill their plates with spiritual inspiration, Torah learning, or practical tools to enrich their Jewish experience, we try to do our part.
Year-round our rabbis, editors, programmers and designers work with extraordinary urgency and devotion, motivated by the constant awareness that at the other end of the screen is an individual — millions of individuals! — who seek a lifeline.
Our team is able to fill those needs only thanks to wonderful, caring people like you who, recognizing the importance of this mission, happily partner with us to provide the necessary funding.
As Yom Kippur quickly nears, please consider:
Can you please partner with us to fill the plates of the Jewish People?
Remember: For many who turn to us every day, we — you! — are their only Jewish lifeline.
Would you please open your heart real wide and partner with us to help them?
