Dignitaries and community leaders gathered at Connecticut’s State Capitol to honor the life of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory. Governor Dannel P. Malloy proclaimed June 22, 2012 as a “Day of Goodness and Kindness” across the state in honor of the Rebbe's 18th yahrzeit which is on Shabbos, June 23, 2012. Photo: Chabad.orgHartford, CT - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is urging Connecticut residents to practice acts of kindness in honor of a late Jewish leader.

Malloy signed an official state proclamation this week dedicating Friday as a Day of Goodness and Kindness. Friday marks the 18th anniversary of the death of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, a leader of the Chabad movement in Orthodox Judaism.

The proclamation states how a central tenet of Schneerson’s teaching is that every single positive act, no matter how small, “contributes to a better, more perfect world.”

There are 23 full-time Chabad Houses, a type of Jewish community center, throughout Connecticut.

The ChaBaD will be really excited and proud. I am not ChaBaD, so I will just do acts of kindness for Hashem instead. Thanks.

The work of Rav Gopin should be commended. Chabad has an amazing presence in Connecticut.

Rabbi Deren, a shliach in Connecticut, lives in the house that Governor Malloy grew up in.

And #3; that's fine. As long as you do good deeds, everyone is happy.
