WHEREAS, The true architects of society and community are those individ-

renowned  and  revered  leader, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M.
Schneerson; and
  WHEREAS, Serving over 44 years of dedicated leadership, Rabbi Schneer-
son established over 1,500 Lubavitch  Centers,  helping  people  of  all
walks  of  life  throughout  the  world - from Australia to Africa, from
Holland to Argentina, and from Moscow to Jerusalem; and
  WHEREAS, Rabbi  Schneerson's  educational  activities  throughout  the
globe   have  enriched  and  strengthened  the  religious,  educational,
cultural, moral and ethical fibers of all citizens of the world; and
  WHEREAS, He was a remarkable and holy man  who  inspired  millions  of
Jews  and  non-Jews to greater dedication, loyalty and commitment in all
matters "between man and G-d" and "between man and man"; and
  WHEREAS, Rabbi Schneerson proclaimed the Redemption was on its way and
he called upon all citizens of the world  to  prepare  with  a  personal
commitment to increase all activities of goodness and kindness; and

tol  on  Monday,  March  11,  2013,  in tribute and remembrance of Rabbi
Schneerson, the leading rabbi of his generation; and
  WHEREAS, This year,  Friday,  March  22,  2013,  corresponding  to  11

sponding to 3 Av, 5773, will be celebrated as "111 Days  of  Education,"
in  tribute  to  the  educational endeavors of this visionary leader and
learned gentleman on behalf of all mankind; and
  WHEREAS, Throughout his purposeful journey of life,  Rabbi  Schneerson
compiled,  with  dignity  and  grace,  decades filled with philanthropic
causes, humanitarian effort and astute Judaic leadership, justly earning
the devotion of his followers and the  admiration  and  respect  of  his
fellow man; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
