Well here I am taking the bait and bumping this thread with full knowledge that this thread will probably head in a direction that will cause it to be closed.
So, what ever do you mean, One Liner?
Also, Mods, I motion to change the title of this thread to “Gefilte fish and gefilte fish.” That way nobody gets offended. All in favor say oy!October 26, 2015 5:51 am at 5:51 am #1106794👑RebYidd23Participant

How can you even think of comparing modern orthodoxy with chabad. chabad is a chasidic movement. solidly so. women cover their heads, men wear black hats constantly. chicldren go to separate schools and are taught Torah in yiddish. most chabad families strive to speak yiddish to the children. please, in almost every custom and tradition, chabad is so different. chabad’s only issue different than other chasidic sects is that they are so very accepting of non-frum jews and don’t push them into becoming frum. rather they allow the non-frum jews to proceed at their own speed towards becoming baalei teshuva. but modern chabad is not.October 26, 2015 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1106797☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Chabad is inherently not modern, but unfortunately sometimes kiruv works both ways…October 26, 2015 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #1106798👑RebYidd23Participant
They are very similar. Members are expected to breathe, and they have noses, and they even both wear shoes.October 26, 2015 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #1106799Neville ChaimBerlinParticipant

If you are going to get into Kiruv, you have to know what you are doing and what the likely expected outcomes might be. If you kiruv someone and expect they become a Brisker Chassd, perhaps you should enter another arena as you are likely to failOctober 26, 2015 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #1106801
In they way they interact with the secular world these two have more on common than any other stream of Judaism.
