Vishnitzer Rebbe Bans Multimedia Presentations at Dinners


Shortly before leaving for a trip to the United States, the Vishnitzer Rebbe Shlita released a letter to the directors of his mosdos in which he bans multimedia presentations at dinners held in honor of the chassidus’ mosdos.

The rebbe tells them that one may not display photos of such events in any venue, adding there may not be an electronic screen of any kind at dinners of mosdos, referring to multimedia and other displays, Chadrei Chareidim reports.

    This is why the Rambam writes that a manhig needs to have a farshtand in worldly matters. He must think this is a television or so (and that is me being dan likaf zechis for him).
