Compromise



“The Rebbe never-ever permitted or encouraged compromising ourselves to save another Jew. The Rebbe would always say: ‘You have to bring the Jew to Torah, not Torah to the Jew.’”
— Rabbi Yossi Paltiel, “Chassidic dress” (part of What is Chassidus series)

And yet he did encourage compromising on hidurim as long as it is not straight out halocha.

And in the case of shiurim to Russian Jews he even permitted in some cases mixed shiurim.
