It's High Time for Selecting a New Lubavitcher Rebbe

The Rebbe is dead. Long live the new Rebbe.

Actually the old rebbe has been dead for quite some time now.

As Hasidim, it is the responsibility of the Lubavitchers to choose a new rebbe.

Let's get this process moving.

If you need some help, we can recommend some executive search firms who will help you narrow down your field of candidates. Or you may want to talk to the Dalai Lama, who has his own concerns about succession in a charismatic religious position.

The deceased rebbe is not coming back. So let's get the show on the road and select a new rebbe. OK?

by definition?

Yes it is by definition that a Hasidic group has a rebbe who serves as their charismatic leader. The Breslover Hasidim are the one notable exception.

The Lubavitchers always had a rebbe until this last one died and now they do need a new rebbe.

Why now do I bring it up? Why not?
