About This Blog

pomegranateThe Chabad Sociologist is a blog covering topics relating to Judaism, Chabad and sociology.

Judaism (in Hebrew: יהדות, Yahadut, the distinctive characteristics of the Judean ethnos) is the religion, philosophy and way of life of the Jewish people.

Chabad-Lubavitch is a Chassidic movement in Orthodox Judaism. One of the world’s larger and best-known Chassidic movements, its official headquarters is in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York. The name “Chabad” (Hebrew: חב”ד) is an acronym for ChochmahBinahDa’at (חכמה, בינה, דעת): “Wisdom, Understanding, and Knowledge.” The name “Lubavitch” (in Russian: Lyubavichi) is the name of the Belorussian village where the movement’s leaders lived for over 100 years. The name “Lubavitch” means “Town of Brotherly Love”.

Sociology is the scientific study of human society and its origins, development, organizations, and institutions. It is a social science which uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis to develop a body of knowledge about human social activity, structures, and functions. A goal for many sociologists is to conduct research which may be applied directly to social policy and welfare, while others focus primarily on refining the theoretical understanding of social processes. Subject matter ranges from the micro level of individual agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and the social structure.
