    "New words added to the Jewish vocabulary"

    I believe when the Rebbe met the injured Isrseli soldiers in 770 in the late 70s, he coined the  term: "mitzuyonim", i.e. the exceptional ones. Focusing on  the  positive, not the negative. This later was expanded to  the now ubiquitous "special needs" children, not "disabled" or "handicapped". 

       Ditto for his choice of  name for a hospital.  "House of  healing" not "house of  the  sick".
