In the Media

From its inception, FREE’s projects have continuously attracted national media attention. In line with its founding force, The Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, FREE’s often daring innovations and civic dedication have warranted hundreds of reports in all manner of media, including major sources like the New York Times and the Associated Press. While in a constant effort to update the website with new articles, FREE presently offers visitors a selection of articles for viewing, which highlight FREE's activities and accomplishments over the years.
