Love without requirements is not the same as love without commitment. Regardless, what Chabad strives to offer is unconditional love. Like a parent, chabad hopes that every Jewish member of the family will embrace a Jewish lifestyle, but the love chabad offers is not conditioned upon a certain set of behaviors or commandments. In that sense, chabad is rather like Adonai, avinu malkeinu, who gives us so many commandments but forgives us our trespasses, our shortcomings... I am a progressive Jew. I keep the sabbath in a very different way from my friends at Chabad, yet I appreciate them and their openhearted approach to sharing their love of mitzvot and their love of other Jews.
