Butman, director of the organization, Wilson noted the high standards of morality in education that is upheld by the Lubavitch Youth Organization. “In a time of despair, you bring hope; in a time of unrest, you bring stability; in a time of confusion, you bring guidance,” Wilson said. He observed, “Under the leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi M. M. Schneerson, the Lubavitch Youth Organization has become a dynamic force in Jewish life.”
