    Insane. I’ve seen plenty of hate-filled comments launched at my fellow Chassidim (which is why I made this acoount), but I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an open display of racial vitriol on YW’s site. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen it anywhere.

    George Floyd was no worse than your average black growing up in a slumland run by crime and violence. Already in his teens, he was arrested for drug trafficking, and in 2006 he was arrested for participating in an aggravated robbery, while in possession of a weapon (It is not clear whether George withdrew the weapon and threatened anyone).

    Since then, George had more or less come clean although he still struggled with a drug addiction. He was an aspiring rapper as well as a professional basketball and football player. Once he moved to Minneapolis, he worked two jobs, one as a truck driver, and another as a security guard at a night club. He was described by those who knew him – former classmates as well as the director of the night club where her worked – as a “gentle giant” with a warm personality; a troubled man who was trying to turn his life around.

    We should all be horrified and distressed by this outrageous, maddening, story. To feel otherwise is nothing short of psychopathic.

    Interjection : “I don’t know a single person who isn’t horrified by what happened to Floyd.”
    Well, now that you’ve visited this thread, you probably can’t say that anymore.
    • He was in handcuffs at the time of the murder.
    • He already had 2 officer sitting on him
    • There were multiple bystanders telling the officers that he was unresponsive.
    • Floyd said multiple times “Help I Can’t Breathe”
    All these factors combined make the story all the more frightening. Please note that Chauvin was the subject of 18 complaints prior to this story.
    I think the man who dismissed all those complaints should also be fired.

    “Floyd was high on fentanyl and possibly also meth, which he had recently used.”
    According to what I read, he was drunk on liquor.

    “If you haven’t found it you haven’t looked. He did five years for armed robbery,”
    I just researched , and I realized that you’re correct; he was indeed arrested 12 years ago for armed robbery. That in no way detracts from the severity of the story. The owner of a night club he used to work for, said that he was a domesticated, smiling, fellow and the cop (Chauvin) who worked as a security guard there was known as a vicious monster who used to randomly peppers pray people. He was also the subject of 18
    complaints made against him from when he worked as an officer.

    “You have no idea at all what you’re talking about”.
    Pepper spray and mace just never goes wrong. It’s fact. Unless the button breaks right before you press, or the guy manages to snatch it from your hand, then there isn’t much that could go wrong. Mace has served the police tremendously well for years.

    “the threat of serious bodily harm is enough to justify deadly force.”
    Could you say that one more time? Anyone who doesn’t go near them is in no danger whatsoever. They’re not looking to hurt people, but once the police come up close, they attack. Police can stay from a nice distance and blast them away with tear gas.

    Anyone who isn’t disturbed by this story, either A. Didn’t watch the video, or B. Is a diagnosed psychopath.

    •Floyd was not high. He was drunk, so read the article.
    •I cannot find a source on the internet that he was involved in armed robbery; I don’t see how that bears any relevance on the subject at hand, either way.
    •There is no such as thing as mace or taser not working. It ALWAYS work on ANYONE.
    • “DF- the RIOTERS should be shot because they are a physical threat to the lives of the store owners, policemen”
    If Jersey had written “Rioters that pose a threat to the lives of store owners and policemen” than that would be a whole different story. The term rioter could refer to someone who is burning a car, smashing a window etc. Such a person could hardly be called a threat. If you want to keep them away, then use tear gas – dont just plow through a whole crowd of them (like the video YW posted) .A shot is likely to end in death.

    “DC, Floyed was NOT strangled.”

    No, he wasn’t strangled; he just had a knee pressed against his neck for 8 minutes until he was pronounced dead moments later….. Really now, Milhouse?! Didn’t I just say something about not posting insensitive comments?!

    Floyd was in HANDCUFFS, and had 2 someone sitting on his legs. The guy was powerless!
    As Jews, we believe that every human was created in Hashem’s image, and each one could fulfill Hashem’s Ratzon by leading a life of peace, based on the 7 mitzvos bnei noach…. A comment such as JeseyJew’s should be taken down by YW staff (actually, it shouldn’t have been sanctioned in the first place), especially because the user identifies himself as a “Jew”. which makes the chilul hashem much worse, if someone were to visit the sight, and chance upon this comment.

    If you believe rioters should be shot, do you also believe that a counterfeiter should be strangled to death, while in handcuffs screaming “Help! I can’t breath!”. Please think before you post insensitively.

    “Being blunt or sharp, is not an indicator of hate. Lack of patience, maybe. An attempt to highlight the point, likely.”

    I didn’t actually mean haeteful per se. the students of Rebbi Akiva also weren’t hateful towards each other. It was their very own teacher that made the famous statement “Love Your Fellow As Yourself”. It is unfathomable that they went against their teachers explicite command!

    It is not right that now, of all the times, the posts are getting more and more heated.

    And blunt or sharp comments can many times be an manifestaion of hate.

    “DC, I’ll write to you, bli neder, in a few weeks or whenever you say. I will be writing that you once again have proven yourself to be a fool.”

    Following is a transcript of an interview between ChabadInfo and d. Zev Zelenko.

    How do you see this situation from the perspective of a Lubavitcher Chossid?

    “It is clear to me that Moshiach is arriving imminently for two reasons:

    1) If I would’ve told you a few months ago that right before Moshiach comes, we will all be taken out of our regular lives and put in a completely different situation which is totally out of our comfort zones, it would be hard to believe me. Now, if I tell you that, you will believe me.

    2) Very simply, the Gematria of Corona in Lashon Hakodesh is Moshiach Bo” —

    Correction: the mezritcher maggid wasn’t sure if Moshiach wold come from his *youngest (Alter Rebbe) or oldest (R’Nochum Chernobyl)

    “No less a person than the Alter Rebbe said that Moshiach will have to be a misnaged, because if he’s a chossid the misnagdim won’t accept him,”

    To shed light on that particular dialogue, I would refer you to the Stump the Rabbi program entitled “How Can We Say That The Rebbe Is Moshiach If The Alter Rebbe Said Moshiach Is A Veltisher?” where rabbi Noam Wagner gives a very reasonable interpretation of that exchange. It is important to note that many of the Rebbeim’s cryptic exchanges were subsequently explained by later Rebbeim. We cannot understand the co-conversations of holy tzaddikim like Chazal say “The mundane talk of the sages contain the deepest secrets” (Sukkah 20b)

    There is also a famous story of how the mezritcher maggid once said that Moshiach will come from one of his talmidim but he’s not sure if he will come from his oldest (Alter Rebbe) or his oldest (R’ Nochum of Chernobyl), so the Alter Rebbe made A shidduch beteween his grandson and R’Nochum’s so that Moshiach can come from both of them. Later, when someone else wanted marry this grandson, R’Mottel, who had succeeded his father since then, disagreed and said that the child was already reserved for “The Litvak” as the Alter Rebbe was called at the time.

    We can’t understand the Alter Rebbe’s discussions; we could only guess. And these guesses could be quite varying – and conflicting – sometimes.

    ” After his passing the probability of his being Moshiach is obviously lower”
    Why, may I ask? Perhaps you are not aware of the Gemara in Sanhedrin 98b or Yerushalmi Brachos halachah 5
    Or the sefer Yeshuos Meshicho, where the Abarbanel paskens that moshiach is just as likely to come from the dead as if he is to come from the living. Perhaps I should also remind you that, in the sefer Kerem Yisroel, it is written by R’ Yisroel of Ruzhin’s son that we should continue to believe his father to be Moshiach even after his passing.

    Perhaps I should also refer you Sdei Chemed maareches 1, os 70

    Milhouse,
    “It will be more vindicated when the Rebbe returns to “lead us to meet Moshiach”, as he often put it.”

    Are you kidding me?! The Rebbe referred to his father-in-law as “The Rebbe King Moshiach”
    The Rebbe himself expressly stated that the Chabad Rebbe of his respective generation is the Nosi Hador, and the Nosi Hador is the Moshiach Shebdor. The Rebbe also announced during a Farbrengen “Every Chossid believes with Emuna Shelaima that his Rebbe is Moshiach”. The link to that sicha can be found below.

    Frum,

    “do the words of Moirainu reb shach zatzal not mean anything?”
    While I certainly believe that the words of Rav Shach mean something in certain respects, I also believe that the words of the Lubavitcher Rebbe mean something. Additionally, I believe that the words of the Satmar Rebbe, Bobover Rebbe, Belzer Rebbe, Skverer Rebbe, Rav Moshe Feintein Rav Ovadiah Yosef, Rav Mordechai Eliyahu, and Rav Shteinmann, who all greatly respected the Rebbe and his opinions, also mean something.

    N0mesorah, ” Rav Shach said Tehillim for the Rebbe when he suffered the stroke.”
    What?! where did you hear that?!

    I didn’t know that the term “Yeshiva World” denotes exclusion to Chabad Lubavitch – or any Jewish sector for that matter.

    In the words of a wise man (with a slight variation) “people who think mishegassen don’t see what they don’t want to see”

    I don’t see why you decided to make such a big deal out of one stupid detail I mentioned half-jokingly. It was viral on many whatsapps and it was quite a famous thing. I will see if I can send you more Gematrias when I find out about them, as you requested earlier. By the way, what made me earn the title “Dear Chabadnik”?
    And for your information Moshiach Ben David is Gematria “Donald Trump”. I forgot how the exact spelling goes but I’ll leave that up to you – you did a nice job last time, although you somehow managed to miss the right one. And it’s probably the most obvious spelling…..

    Kisvei Ariza”l Shaar Hagilgulim writes that Moshiach wll be revealed howeverthe world won’t recognize him as Moshiach. Afterwards, his body and soul will go into the Amud Haanan and, after a while it will come back down to the world and everyone will accept him as Moshaich. There are vvarying opinions as to how long Moshiach will be hidden. Rashi says that the Possuk “Happy is the one who waits a hundred something years” refers to this time period. I mentioned a different opinion in my other post.

    Yisroellazear,
    It’s okay to be confused. Midrash in Bamidbar Rabba Naso 12:12 says that after Moshiach will be revealed, he will be hidden from the Yidden, and subsequently revealed, and then the whole world will accept him as Moshiach. This idea is also found in the Medrash on Shir hashirim. It can also be found in Rashi to Daniel 12:12.
    Interestingly R’ Eliezer mentioned Rabeinu Bechaye and Toras Moshe. Both of these seforim at the end of Parshas Shemos, mention this Idea. In the Siddur of the Yaavetz , it says that Moshiach will be hidden 49 years.

    Milhouse,
    Chugibugi wrote that Rabbi Akiva made a “tragic mistake”, so I made it clear that Rabbi Akiva was doing precisely what your supposed to do, just later when they caught Bar Kochva doing Aveiros, he was disqualified as Moshiach (the fact that he died does not disqualify him from being Moshiach see Abarbanel Yeshuos Meshicho) and Rabbi Akiva was retroactively mistake, however in the moment that he said it he was fully justified.

    No, I don’t believe Bar Kochba to be Moshiach, and No, I don’t believe that his soul will vest itself in the real Moshiach. Of course, the main reason why is because, as a proud Lubavitcher, I elieve my Rebbe to be Moshiach as per the Rebbe’s explicit instructions (see Toras Menachem 5747 volume 1 p. 266).

    “Even the great Reb Akiva did not know,and made a tragic mistake in thinking that Bar Kochva was moshiach,so please all you guys stop making fools out of yourselves and go back to work or to learn”

    Either you could learn from that Yerushalmi that Rabbi Akiva made a mistake, or you could learn a proof from there there is no problem with identifying a specific person as Moshiach, or pointing out certain signs to the Redemption. Rabbis have been doing both of those things for the past 2,000 years.

    Okay, it looks like I didn’t do my research too well. I remember thinking, when I saw the post, that I’d remembered hearing 400, but I didn’t think too much of it. Perhaps, if we go by the way it is written in Torah without Meforshim it would work, but that would be a little sketchy. However, as many have already stated, That does not detract from the legitimacy of claiming and believing that Moshiach right now. Thanks for the sources for the Baal Haturim. I now have 2 sources – Shemos perek 12 posuk 8, and Bo perek 12 possuk 9. I’ll look them up and see what I get over there. It could be that both of them are true.

    Yserbius, I didn’t realize that R’ Chaim would always talk like that about Moshiach. I heard, that he made recent dramatic statements about the Moshiach’s imminence. I heard that others have been discussing it as well.

    @rational
    What’s the problem with you?! Tens of thousands of people have experienced miraculous recoveries after having visited the Ohel. People here have been giving all sorts of answers that won’t have any visible effect, while I’m the first one that’s mentioned something actually real. It won’t help you to look for the logical and @rational solutions…. In a case such as this we have to think spiritually, meaningfully. Responses based off of what simply make sense to our sechel enoshi aren’t always the most best.

    Besides, what is with your use of the term ‘poor lady’? Just because someone is going through a momentarily hard time, they become a nebach case? I think your a ‘poor guy’ dismissing by idea outright. Does someone become labeled a ‘poor lady’ just because stuff aren’t going there way for some time? We make the best out of our situations to help us grow. I think that your labeling her ‘poor’ and ‘unfortunate’ are definitely more offensive then what I wrote. These are challenges, but if you look deeper you see that they’re really opportunities. There is a story with someone that was planning on marrying a shiksa but before he went ahead with his plans, his rabbi convinced him to go by the Rebbe by Sunday dollars to receive a brocha. When his turn came , he told the Rebbe what he was about to do, and the Rebbe told him “I actually envy you”. The man was not expecting such an answer, so he asked the Rebbe to explain. He said that a person’s connection to Hashem is like a ladder and every nisayon, that you encounter brings you up one rung on the ladder. This man’s nisayon would get him incredibly higher. This is indeed enviable!

    Every challenge can either be viewed as an obstacle or as a springboard for spiritual growth. This woman is not unfortunate; she is enviable.

    Rational, if visiting kivrei tzaddikim is considered mishegassen to you, then you need some serious self – evaluation.

    @ysiegel
    That is indeed quite a famous and typical vort of the Rebbe – however there are much, much more:
    Why does the Baal Haggadah write אחד חכם, אחד רשע, אחד תם, ואחד שאינו יודע לשאול, Putting the Chochom and Rasha together? Won’t the Rasha have a bad influence on the Chochom? The Rebbe answers that, on the contrary, this way the Chochom will be able to influence the Rasha! This teaches us that, we needn’t worry about being influenced by our surroundings; On the contrary, we should initiate to have an influence on our surroundings!

    Without meaning to put down anyone else, I can’t help but quote an interesting observation the Rebbe makes regarding the nuschaos in our Haggados. By the section that discusses the hard work that the Yidden suffered, the Alter Rebbe’s Haggada brings down the possuk וימררו את חייהם בעבודה קשה בחומר ובלבנים וכל עבדה בשדה את כל עבודתם אשר עבדו בם בפרך however this possuk appears in no other Haggadah! The Rebbe explains in his haggadah that this possuk must have been included in the Rishonim and Sifri for 2 reasons – 1. The baal Haggadah is obviously trying to detail the hard work that the Yidden had gone through after stating that the
    Yidden had gone through a hard time as a general fact. If so, the possuk of ויעבדו מצרים את ישראל בפרך that appears in most Haggados is not sufficient. 2. Chazal (sota 10b) learn from that possuk that the yidden were given easy work and that the word ‘Perech’ is supposed to mean ‘Peh Ruch’. If so the Baal Haggadah couldn’t have brought a proof from that possuk, because that possuk isn’t really talking about hard work!

    From here the Rebbe deduces that the possuk of Vayimareru must have been included in the original Haggadah. If so, how exactly did such a mistake make it’s way into almost all of our Haggadahs? The Rebbe answers that the scribes might have abbreviated the pessukim by writing ויעבדו…..בפרך intending the two pessukim which both end with the word “perech” but the printers didn’t realize and only printed the first possuk, which is the one printed in our haggadahs
    Once again, I don’t meant to say the others ar wrong but i think the Rebbe’ss Pirush makes alot of sense.

    Avraham: “This story turns “loving all Jews” on its head. To make a holiday celebrating the founder of Chabad’s “rescue”….”
    Actually, I don’t find this minhag offensive at all, although I see where you’re mistaken. After all the shame and excommunications that he had to put up with and the lies and false charges that were levied against him by the Misnagdim, one can imagine the utter pain and torture the Alter Rebbe suffered at the hands of this Misnaged to whom he was sent after his supposed freedom. To question the veracity of the stories that are told of the Alter Rebbe as well as the comments he made regarding his stay in the misnaged’s house, is simply atrocious and despicable. These traditions, which are related at great length in the Sichos of our Rebbeim and hold a firm ground in Chabd tradiotion, and someone who claims that these stories and comments are unfounded or unreliable, is essentially taking issue with the whole Chabad mesorah.

    I hope that those that proposed these doubts and claims will apologize at the soonest opportunity.

    In a talk which is printed in Likutei sichos chelek beis on p. 513, The Lubavitcher Rebbe said as follows:

    “I was asked how It’s possibles to say “arise and rejoice those who dwell in the dust” regarding my Father-in-law the Rebbe, that he will redeem us. After all, It is known that fist Moshiach will come and the Techiyas Hameisim will occur. If so how can one possibly say that the Rebbe is moshiach?
    in resolution: although, Moshiach will first come and then Techiyas Hameisim will happen, this is only in regards to the general public however the very special ones will come back to life before Moshiach comesin the same veindfghy as is explained in stories brought down in shas as well as midrashim including Avoda Zara 10b.”

    ehhhhh……. What’s going on here? Moshiach can’t come from the dead?
    Has the non lubavitc world gone beserk?
    perhaps i should be dan l’kaf zchus and assume that you guys didn’t
    properly study the Gemara on Sanhedrin 98b, or the Abarbanel (ישועות משיחו פרק א) , or the many other commentaries that explain the possibility of Moshiach rising from the dead.

    Yeshivishrockstar: “So: Defend Chabad: Is the Rebbe the Moshiach: YES OR NO?”
    Of course I believe that the Rebbe is moshiach and so does every other Lubavitcher believe so, even if their scared to announce it. I already mentioned the incident with Rabbi Shloime Cunin, on the thread titled “when did Chabad become a kiruv-oriented Chassidus?”, and how he announced in front of a large crowd of Lubavitchers, seemingly unaware of the cameras that videoing the speech: “The Rebbe runs the world, and he will take us out of golus”. In that video, we see how even the Head Shliach of California acknowledges that the Rebbe is Moshiach. There is nothing wrong with saying that and we have many halachic sources to back up our claim, including the many sichos where the rebbe iterates that all the nesiim of Chabad where the Moshiach of their generation.

    You saw in the video yourself how Rabbi Wagner brings down sources from many sichos of the Rebbe, where the Rebbe pretty clearly hints to the fact that he’s Moshiach. Are you insinuating that the Rebbe was wrong?

    Yeshivishrockstar: “Read CHabadtalk. But its out of date.” I googled Chabadtalk and visited their site and it doesn’t seem to exist anymore. There is something, however, called the ChabadTalk Podcast by Tzvi Freeman, and it seems to be very Kosher, and i enjoy the author’s articles on Chabad.org. definitely nothing disrespectful over there.
    ” just read the articles on Crownheightsinfo and Collive by Rav Menashe Kleins petira”
    No article regarding Rav Menashe Klein was posted on Crown Heights Info but this is what i found on Collive.
    “shame it’s a shame. we have no leaders left in this world”
    “Very sad!”
    “Every way!”
    “Erev Rosh Hashana
    Is it 29 Elul in Eretz Yisroel when he passed away?
    If so he shares a special day with the Tzemach Tzedek……”
    “Baruch Dayan Haemes…”

    All of these comments were made by Lubavitchers expressing their sympathy over the passing of this Gadol. While mentioning his life story, Collive naturally mentions the negative stance he had against Chabad, being that this article was posted on a Chabad site – Is there a problem with that? And yes, a couple of the comments on the bottom expressed their disappointment that collive mentioned that aspect of his life, being that they felt that it wasn’t right to publicize that on the day of his petira. Is there a problem with that?

    “read the comments on Crownheightsinfo in regards to Rav Yisroel Belsky’s comments on meshichistim.”

    Besides for comment #1, #2, and #15, all 37 comments on the page are either expressing their sympathy and pain upon hearing about his death, or berating the aforementioned comments, for their stupidity, so why are you trying to make it sound as if the whole Lubavitch as if all the comments were against him?
    “SO anyone who knows the emes: Chabad’s “Ahavas Yisrael” is only as long as they don’t attack chabad.” ????? Of course we love everyone, even when they attack us, but that doesn’t change the fact that we’re disappointed with them….. Where does #15’s comment imply that he doesn’t love Rav Yisroel. How does saying “He went against YOUR Rebbe and your fine with posting an article about him?!” imply that the writer doesn’t love rav yisroel? I love Rav Yisroel, and I love you too, even if my comments to you sound harsh sometimes….
