In conjunction with the 21th anniversary, June 20, 2015 of the Rebbe's passing in 1994, Rabbi Dalfin has done a 20-year study of Chabad and published it in a new book Chabad's Secret: Inside the Most Successful Jewish Organization. The book is endorsed by leading experts including Lawrence Schiffman, Ph.D. of NYU; Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet of Yeshiva University and Sara Benor, author.
The book dismisses the latest findings of the Pew study. It shows, with documented sources that Judaism is flourishing and Chabad is a leader in this.
The age-old question, how does Chabad have the money to do all that it does, is answered in the book. More so, a detailed list of Who's Who of Jewish philanthropists, who support Chabad is also discussed in great detail.
The book also includes information about:
Who is the most influential person in Chabad TODAY?
Who are Today's movers and shakers in Chabad?
Chabad's Financial Trail: Who, What, When and Where
Chabad and other Jewish organizations like Yeshiva University, Satmar, etc.
Chaim Dalfin has written a fascinating and revealing account of what makes Chabad so successful. It explains how this unique combination of commitment and organization has become the largest force in the revival of Jewish life all over the world

Rabbi Chaim Dalfin is a learned Chabad "insider" with an eye for the ethnographic and an ear for the stories that make history more than just dry recounting of facts. "Chabad's Secret" is a sympathetic and well-informed portrait of a movement that has been changing the shape of world Jewry in profound ways. This book may raise as many questions as it answers, but those questions will be smarter and better informed by virtue of having engaged Rabbi Dalfin's passionate account of what makes Chabad so successful in today's open religious marketplace.

From shuls to schools, from rehab centers to online libraries, the Chabad movement has flourished since the passing of its revered leader in 1994. This book describes the movement's dizzying array of programs and institutions, as well as the wealthy individuals who finance them. Based on his own experiences as a lifelong member and keen observer of Chabad, Rabbi Chaim Dalfin offers an insider's take on his beloved movement, supplemented by others' journalistic and academic analysis, as well as the voices of many people who have been touched by Chabad. Anyone interested in Jewish education and community building will find this book enlightening.
