Schneerson, who was childless, did not appoint a successor; Chabad Hasidim still consider him to be their leader and ''Rebbe''.
The movement, following Rabbi Schneerson's call, has trained and ordained thousands of rabbis, educators, ritual slaughterers, and ritual circumcisers, who are all accompanied by equally motivated spouses and typically large families, all of whom aim to fulfill their mandate of Jewish outreach, education, and revival.
During the later years of his life Schneerson's teachings were interpreted by some to mean that he was claiming to be the Messiah.

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902-1994), the leader -"the Rebbe"- of the Lubavitch movement of Chassidic Judaism for forty four years, was a paradoxical man. While he barely set foot outside his neighborhood during his entire leadership, his influence was felt worldwide.
Although Rabbi Menachem Mendel was the obvious successor, he was initially reluctant to accept the mantle of leadership.
A year later he formally assumed the title of Rebbe, explaining to members of the movement that while he would be devoted to his work as leader, each man and women was ultimately responsible for his or her own actions, and for his or her pursuit of G-dliness.

Rebbe Schneerson was believed to be a descendant of King David thus fulfilling the prophecy of 1 Chronicles 17:10b-14.
During Rebbe Schneerson’s last days he suffered in his body the ravages of age, stroke, and was unable to speak.

 Chabad and Messianism
ince the 1994 death of Schneerson, who led a worldwide movement of tens of thousands of Hasidim, a large segment of his followers believe he was, and continues to be, the legendary redeemer whose ultimate arrival is a central tenet of Orthodoxy.
But the indisputable practical effect is that the movement shows no sign of appointing a successor to the childless Schneerson, who was fifth in the line of Lubavitch rabbis.
Although Raskin pleads “the Fifth” when asked if he believes Schneerson is moshiah, he admits his lecture series is a good “implement” to spread the word that the time of redemption has arrived.

Even for those few Jews who do believe Menachem Schneerson was the messiah, they do not worship him, and they certainly do not consider him G-d incarnate the way Christians consider their Christ to be.
If these folks believe that Schneerson was a potential Messiah, then he is but a recent one in a countless series of potential Messiahs, all of whom died without enacting the Messianic task, presumably because it wasn't time yet.
The followers of the late Lubovitcher Rebbe Schneerson who thought, during his life, that he was the Messiah and would soon reveal himself as such, were certainly disappointed when he passed away without doing so.
