"Excuse me, are you Jewish?” Experience the relentless energy and passion of Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries as they approach strangers on street corners worldwide, dedicated to inspiring fellow Jews to embrace a religiously observant lifestyle. In The Rebbe's Army, award-winning journalist Sue Fishkoff provides an inside look at the behind-the-scenes efforts of this small group of Hasidim from Brooklyn and their commitment to outreach.

They can be found in every corner - from bustling metropolises to quiet suburbs - across the United States and in sixty-one countries worldwide. They illuminate grand Chanukah menorahs in public squares, operate "Chabad houses" on college campuses spanning from Berkeley to Cambridge, lead weekly bible classes in the basement of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., manage a non-sectarian drug treatment center in Los Angeles, and host the largest Passover Seder in Nepal. They establish synagogues, Hebrew schools, and day-care centers in places that are often apathetic and occasionally hostile to their outreach efforts. They have built an impressive billion-dollar international empire, complete with their own news agency, publishing house, and hundreds of Websites.
