Description The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, taught his followers to reach out to their brothers and sisters all over the world. This is represented by the globe in the background. The Tefillin (phylacteries) speak of the holy work Lubavitcher Chassidim do by teaching estranged Jews in the most far-flung regions, bringing them close & binding their hearts to their Creator. The continent looks like North & South America, however, a closer view will reveal the shapes of the heart and the brain, with the Tefillin of the head and the Tefillin of the arm (which is across from the heart). In the stars appear the Hebrew letters Chet, Bet, Dalet, which spell Chabad and stand for Chochma (Wisdom), Bina (Understanding) & Daat (Knowledge). This is the Hebrew name for the Lubavitch movement.
