I’m sure Hashem is proud of this topic, we will show Hashem we can get along!May 25, 2022 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #20910761a2b3cParticipant
If I was a Lubavitcher, I would find this thread offensive.May 25, 2022 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #2091078
I find it interesting that his idea of getting along is telling people to say nice things about him.May 25, 2022 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #2091093
Well I guess you aren’t because I am a lubavitvcher chossid and I don’t find it offensive, aderabe, I want to hear all the good stuff people have to say about lubavtich, not just the negative ones.May 25, 2022 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #2091092
My ideas is resulting from that topic about mashichistim which went totally off topic and started talking about all the shady stuff which is said about lubavitch, let’s get a but positive.
ONE RULE: NOTHING NEGATIVE HERE!!!May 25, 2022 10:36 pm at 10:36 pm #2091108ujmParticipant

Yep…in full view of pritzus, put on the heads and arms of people who don’t know or believe in the mitzvah to begin withMay 26, 2022 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #2091184YsiegelParticipant
I agree…I’m a Lubavitcher and I find this offensive…and silly…and other things I don’t have time to think of how to express….and takka it’s the opposite of what Lubavitch represents (a tiny bit more self confidence…)
I’ll say this: if your feeling good about yourself is dependent on what random people from random places write anonymously about a group you associate yourself with…start learning more Chassidus, and try finishing Likkutei Dibburim from start to finish (and even if you already have…you’re obviously young enough to read it again and it will have new and different meaning every once in a while).

When were done talking about Mormons, let’s start finding nice things to day about Lubavitch…May 26, 2022 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #2091226
This is a kiddush HashemMay 26, 2022 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #2091241DaMosheParticipant
I was recently out of town somewhere without a Jewish community. Lubavitch allowed me to hear leining and daven Mussaf with a minyan on Shabbos!May 26, 2022 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #2091248LitParticipant
The Alter Rebbe said that Moshiach will be a Veltlicher (non-Chosid).May 26, 2022 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #2091335zaidy78Participant
Come on! Anyone who has traveled out of town, and yes ANYONE, has been positively effected by the Chabad shiluchim around the globe. Every frum Yid, even the chassidishe Rebbes, who has vacationed in Palm Springs, or anywhere else has been positively impacted by having a minyan. Often having a mikva. Usually they know where to pick up some food with heimishe hechsheirim. The amazing kiruv that they do impacts us all. And its only because they have such Ahavas Yisroel. I was once in Vail, CO, and they have a most beautiful minyan. It is simply because of the mesiras nefesh of these sheluchim that so many people can daven (whatever nussach they want) with a minyan. In these hick OOT spots, no one is trying to make anyone Chabad. They are providing an island of Torah and Mitzvos in middle of the wilderness.
Its only the in towners that don’t see it, that don’t appreciate them.
(You don’t have to agree with EVERYONEs hashkofos – and very few a real meshachist).
And I am not Lubavitch. (But have been able to use their services when I travel). When you meet them personally, you become humbled by their accomplishments. And its kdai to support them).May 26, 2022 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #2091381yaakov doeParticipant
Almost everything about Lubavitch is positive. You can’t judge the movement by the few kooks who fly Moshiach flags with the Rebbe’s picture.May 26, 2022 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #2091363ZushyParticipant
Yidden are all really amazing
an Israeli was telling me recently that he cannot beleive how he walks into a home in the US and walks out a minute later with a generous donation ….
I think chabad are super super special,
do an inordinate amount of chessed
and are really moiser nefesh for hashem and yahadusMay 26, 2022 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #2091356n0mesorahParticipant
Just thinking….. Shouldn’t those two issues in a way cancel each other out?May 26, 2022 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #2091440
Different cheshbonos, but you’re not allowed to expose tefilin to ervah; that’s a halachaMay 26, 2022 5:20 pm at 5:20 pm #2091468Yserbius123Participant
The fact that you can be in any inhabited area of the world and find a kosher meal and possibly even a minyan is amazing and speaks so much about Chabad and Rav Schneerson ZT”L.
Out of all kiruv organizations, I feel that not only is Chabad the most successful in terms of numbers, but in terms of acceptance also. How many other Ba’alei Teshuva find their kids in the same schools as their Rabbonim, or that shidduchim marred by their past?May 26, 2022 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #2091483Yserbius123Participant
They have that hilarious story about the Rebbe (I think it was the Tzemach Tzedek ZT”L) taking the koach ha’tumah away from Napoleon before he invaded Russia by making the French national anthem a niggun which they still sing today.May 26, 2022 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #2091487HaKatanParticipant
That is not the concern. See the Org web site Identifying Chabad.May 26, 2022 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #2091494LitParticipant
They are GIANT in PR. Name me one other Hasidic sect who comes near them when it comes to promoting themselves in the media.May 27, 2022 12:32 am at 12:32 am #2091637
YS > French national anthem a niggun which they still sing today.
this is a fascinating moment in history – most of Polish/Litvish/Chasidishe Yidden and Rebbeim were enthusiastic about Napoleon, while Baal Hatanya saw assimilation from (1) Napoleon coming to Eastern Europe (this is like Jews emigrating to America, except the “goldene medinah” coming dictly to Jews”) and (2) did not see Russians going away – realpolitik, Kissinger’s style … We have to admit that he was not very wrong in both aspects.
The machlokes was partially geographic, with Chabad being in current Belorus, while others being in Lita/Poland/Galicia. As we see now, his territory is still under Russia, while others are not.May 27, 2022 12:37 am at 12:37 am #2091635
> you’re not allowed to expose tefilin to ervah;
Chosid shoteh would not swim briskly to save a lady due to hirhurim. Here, they are trying to save figuratively drowning people! (I do not mean putting tefilin on ladies)May 27, 2022 12:38 am at 12:38 am #2091636
YS > Out of all kiruv organizations … or that shidduchim marred by their past?
As we discussed, they don’t call themselves “kiruv” and others are trying to copy their approach – imitation is best flattery. But re:shiduchim, I don’t think shluchim family marry their baalei teshuva. Maybe because they know them well 🙂May 28, 2022 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #2091805
why bedafke lekutei diburim. A bochur should start off with nun tes and then go to sefer hamomorim yidish and ala zachen. Ask a litvak what keser is. Nu what is keser?May 29, 2022 12:36 am at 12:36 am #2091934
I’m a litvak, I’ve learned about keser a little.. No need for a bochur to know how sefiros are countedMay 30, 2022 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #2092545commonsaychelParticipant
Ok Great, now let us focus on the positive side of Satmar, Bobov and BelzMay 30, 2022 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #2092574
Common syachel i agree every now and here someone makes an extremely anti chasidish thread such as “why do chasidishes never say tachnun” or “why dont we learn on reb shayeles yartzeit instead of fressing”. we need to hate the hatred (sarcasim). but this thread is a bit of a scamMay 30, 2022 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #2092586
Asking questions isn’t anti chassidish. Only chabad thinks that way.May 31, 2022 8:48 am at 8:48 am #2092687YsiegelParticipant
Please, random individuals who anonymously post things in the name of Chabad doesn’t constitute what “Chabad” thinks.
In fact, random Chabadniks who you may have met and who claim to expound upon the teachings of Chabad without showing any sort of depth of knowledge of the subject matter at hand, aren’t either true representatives of “Chabad” itself. There may very well be a minute group of people who represent official Chabad, but Chabad is a gigantic philosophy and way of life expounded upon in thousands (if not tens of thousands) of works over 200 years…not a bunch of baal teshuvas who learned a few maamarim from rabbis who themselves never understood Chassidut, and go screaming subjective facts (yes, an oxymoron) at the world….definitely not…May 31, 2022 9:30 am at 9:30 am #2092701
Well, for starters, you are also a random individual posting in the name of chabad.
The friends I have are ffb for the most part, for doros. They are wonderful friends, not lecturers, and I have learned much from and about them and how they live their lives and raise their kids over many years.
I will say one thing for sure, they would never make such an ugly statement about baalei tshuva, they are not so full of themselves. And the irony of you talking like that while being the master of outreach.May 31, 2022 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #2092953
Syag, I would agree with you he’s being pretty nasty. But have no fear, I’m frum from birth, Baruch Hashem.
“Well, for starters, you are also a random individual posting in the name of chabad.”
Good point.May 31, 2022 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #2092954
Commonsaychel, I have many good things to say about other chassidim also. Maybe you’ll have the honors to start those threads?May 31, 2022 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #2092966
It may surprise you to hear this but compliments are something we give, not something we ask others to give to us.
