Another Great Source for Judaism: Chabad

Recently, I wrote about the Center for Online Judaic Studies (COJS) because I liked it so much as a source of early Jewish history.  My colleague, Jeff Feinstein, sent me the link to another excellent site that I find extremely useful in my religion class. Called Chabad, it covers everything from Jewish holidays to Jewish history, to Jewish learning and values.  Sub menus include video clips, essays, and links to other sites. I covered Hasidic Judaism last week and showed a clip from the site in which a rabbi interviews Oprah about a day she spent among Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn. Along with Judaism 101, and  COSJ,  Chabad is an excellent source for both teachers and students.
