    Avi k: “DC, you are also wrong. It comes from Belarus.”
    Nope, it comes from Russia, and this a ridiculous argument to have, as you can easily look up these facts on the Internet. I would refer you to Wikipedia though, and then you’ll tell me what you think….

    Yseigel: “In all my years of going to gatherings, hearing rabbonim in the Chabad community…. I have never seen such views as expressed by many individuals here speaking in the name of Chabad”

    Well obviously, because the views being expressed here are the not the type that you find by a traditional ‘Chasidic Gathering’. There, they probably talk about Chassidishkeit and Hiskashrus and different ideas related to the concept of being a Chossid, whereas the topics under discussion here belong in an entirely different spectrum. The fact that you didn’t hear these ideas being expressed at the Farbrengens you went to, does not imply that the rabonim don’t agree with what I’m saying.

    In any event, it’s a known fact that there are many things that Chabad Shluchim just wouldn’t say in public because of the controversy it would arouse. Case in point, the time that Rabbi Shlome Cunin, head Shliach of California, said – apparently unaware of the cameras: “The Rebbe runs the world, and he will take us out of golus”. There is a video of this event that went around on different sites, and it just goes to show that Shluchim really believe many things that they just won’t say in public, but now just may not be the time to elaborate….
    “At any rate I’d absolutely love to have a conversation with some of these individuals in order to try and set some things straight”
    It’s ironic that you’re telling ME that you would like to set things straight, as if you have a better idea of the inner workings of Chabad than me, a Lubavitcher Chossid for many years. Let’s just say that Chabad and their ideologies are a little more complicated than you think, and not everything about Chabad is limited to all the nonsense that you hear in your local Litvishe shtiebel.

    At any rate, It’s good to know that you attend Chasidic gatherings – keep it up…. Who knows, perhaps they’ll even turn you into a mentsh some day….

    Nevillechaimberlin: “As a side note, glad to see your trolling career has forced you to look into the Mishnah Berurah. That’s something most Lubavitchers wouldn’t do.”

    If i would get a nickel for every lie you make….. I would have enough money to buy YWN and kick you off of CR. What i find most ironic is the fact that you seem to roll stuff off your proverbial tongue as if you have you actually know what your talking about. How ’bout you stop just posting whatever your stomach tell you, and actually get to work before you start posting your nonsense in public. I wish I would have enough time to rebut all of your statements but I just don’t have the time or patience.

    I’m not sure what you mean by “something most Lubavitchers wouldn’t do”. It seems like you aren’t that familiar (to put it mildly) with the way it works in today’s Chabad curriculum. It is a known fact that many times when there is no ALter Rebbe Shulchan Aruch, Chabad paskins like the Mishna Berura. I clearly remember getting learning it back in Yeshiva and even getting tested on it….

    “I’m pretty sure I’ve heard Chabadniks call it misnagdish” Pretty sure??? Is this another one of your fantasies? Buddy, it’s time to get e-du-c-a-t-e-d….
    “Is this going to be another schism between the crazy new-age Chabadniks and the “real” Chabadniks?”
    Huh????? now I’m totally lost… please explain yourself instead of just rambling.
    P.S sorry if I sounded harsh. I just get frustrated when people publicize untrue facts.

    LA boy: Oh sorry, I misunderstood you. I thought you were referring to bashing gedolim and other sects – that is what we were discussing when I mentioned col and the other sites, as nevillechaimberlin stated: “Chabad forums are 99% a bash-fest on other yidden, primarily gedolim.” and then later he presented examples of sites that bash other yidden and gedolim: “CrownHeightsInfo, ChabadInfo, Collive, The Anti Tzemach, etc…”

    That’s what I was responding to, when I posted a rebuttal.

    nevillechaimberlin: Don’t forget that the Anti Tzemach was formed in response to a previous blog called the MentalBlog, a site published by the controversial Tzemach Atlas who started the blog as a platform to spread false information regarding Chabad, and for a while, it gained notoriety among Chabad circles as well as others as a dangerous propaganda site. The owner has since closed the blog and according to some, he eventually went off the derech r”l although I myself am not actually sure what happened to him afterwards. His final words before he closed shop were: “I don’t understand why I am still writing this blog. A better question, why am I still a Jew? I don’t find myself at home with my people. The internal dialogue with G-d is exhausted. The alienation is complete . . .THE END
    “I sign off, thank you for all.”

    In response, a presumed Lubavitcher by the alias of “hirsheltzig” started his own blog which is known as “The Anti Tzemach”, a site which was originally intended to be a counter – attack against all of TA’s claims. While, of course, the motives behind his having published the site, do not justify the gross content, nevertheless, it is worthwhile to bear in mind that the site was formulated merely as a response to an already existing site which had gained a name as a hogwash promoting platform.

    LA boy: Interesting, because I used to visit that site every day for a few years and i never came across anything disrespectful against other communities. It may be that every once in a while they write something bad, but i haven’t seen it ever, so it’s probably not to such a great extent.

    And I believe that the reason why the site was placed under cherem was not due to the reasons you mentioned, but because of others which aren’t necessarily relevant to post here but if you see or find anything disturbing than you should probably Email the editors and let them take care of it – they might do something, but I’m just wondering if these stories you posted as ‘examples’ are based of what you heard from others or what you yourself saw….

    nevillechaimberlin: “People have brought up Chabad forums many times in the past; I’m not sure why you reserved the strategy of denial until now. CrownHeightsInfo, ChabadInfo, Collive, The Anti Tzemach, etc…”

    Alright let’s get this rebuttal started:
    Crownheightsinfo: They don’t seem to have any forum, just articles about stuff going in Crown Heights and Lubavitch. I just went through five pages of posts and I did not find one article regarding Litvishers or other Chassidic sects.

    ChabadInfo: They don’t have any sort of forum, and the only thing you will find there are loads of yidishe news items about goings-on in Lubavitch, inspirational videos, etc. By the comments section, they write: “only proper comments will be allowed” – something that YWN doesn’t post by their comments section. I just took a quick skim of the first page and didn’t find anything inappropriate. Additionally i believe that this comments section is solely for the site owners to view and they are never posted publicly.

    Collive: no forum at all, respectful comments, and has no history whatsoever of bashing or the like.

    Anti Tzemach: this indeed is a disrespectful site, you may be have a valid claim against this one, but nevertheless, there is nothing concrete against it for the following reasons:
    First of all, unlike YWN this blog is manned by only one person who goes by the pseudonym of “hirscheltzig”, and not necessarily is he a Lubavitcher anyway. Nobody knows who he is and he may just be a random person pretending to be a Lubavitcher in order to make Lubavitch look bad. additionally, if you look in the comments section, you’ll see that everyone attacks him for his radical views. No one agrees with him.

    So my words to you are: please don’t just denigrate others without a proper basis to your claims.

    It seems that the main complaint against my post is that it is not the mods’ job to censor and fact check every post before its approved.

    To clarify, my intention was not that the mods are responsible to investigate and research every comment to determine whether it’s true or not, rather that if they see something that is not worded respectfully or contains some gross untruths, they should be considerate enough – and it may even be their responsibility – not to allow them from going through when it’s obvious that their opinion will be attacked, and we’ve seen instances in which mods did not allow a comment to go through, because of the vulgarity it contained.
    So why, in heaven’s name, when people word grossly despicable things about the Rebbe, does YWN not stand up in his honor?????

    coffe addict : “I just learned this גמרא in ראש השנה regarding צדיקים, בנונין, and רשעים that בנונים are people who are 50/50 How does the בעל התניא answer this?”

    Lol. u obv didnt actually learn the Tanya inside, cuz if u did, u wouldn’t have asked that question! the whole reason the Baal hatanya discusses the idea of a beinoni is after he quotes that gemara. he then asks several questions on that gemara, proving that we have to learn it differently. in subsequent perakim he resolves these difficulties by reeinterpreting the gemara to fit with his oopinion.
    please, please, before you ask questions based off of things u heard, first look up the source iself, cuz many times the answers to you questions are right there in the topic of discussion itself. \

    as for your anticipated answer of Abaye looking at himself as a beinoni, the alter rebbe actually disproves that possible answer by saying that it doesnt make sense that abaye who was such a big tzadik that “lo psik pumya m’girsei” could make such a mistake as to call himself a beinoni. being humble is only when there is some basis to the perspective that u are trying to present, not when you grossly misrepresent an outlook on yourself to present yourself in a completely different realm than reality. abaye’s statement of being a beinoni only serves as a support to the alter rebbe’s opinion.

    LerntmiTayrah: “As per the gedoilim, anyone who says yechi is clearly an apikoires”

    I guess these “gedolim” also hold that rebbi akiva – who said regarding bar kochba ‘Din Hu MAlka Meshicha” – is also an apikores.
    and i guess that dvei d’rav yanai ,dvei d’rav chisdai, and dvei d’rav menachem ben chizkiyah are also apikorsim for calling their rebbeim moshiach as it says in Sanhedrin 98b.

    I apologize for not being clear enough – i was not referring to your last post about lefi anniyas daati. I was referring to post #1552495 in which you blatantly say that the Rebbe was WRONG because he said 25 years ago that Moshiach Is Here and he hasn’t come yet. That is very disrespectful and I’m surprised that CR mods allowed such impudence to be publicized. The Coffee Room should not be allowed to be used as a way of advocating an Anti-Chabad agenda.

    Obviously, you misunderstood the Rebbe’s talk of Chof Ches Nissan and the Sukkos Farbrengen of 5747 where the rebbe says that he has done all he could and that now it is up to us.
    When the Rebbe says that moshiach is here, it obviously means that moshiach has come already, and all we have to do is improve in our middos, and then we’ll merit his final and complete revelation. It is not a contradiction to say that moshiach is here, alive, and waiting for us to merit his coming. We see at the end of all the Rebbe’s sichos kodesh that-depending on the context-ends off with something along the lines of “and may we merit his complete and speedy redemption now in our days, Amen” (to which the Chassidim would respond with a thunderous “amen”) . It seems like a contradiction: how could the rebbe say that moshiach has come and then wish that he come soon?? obviously it’s too separate concepts- Moshiach has already arrived and once we do enough (the Rebbe outlines in many of his sichos that the way to do so is by spreading Yiddishkeit to all four corners of the world) we will merit his complete redemption.

    If something is still not understood by you, then let me know.

    What do you expect us to do? Extol and sing praise to your gedolim with every fiber of our being?

    Yes, we begin our comments with “not only did he not hate chabad” because most gedolim and even other Rebbeim opposed Chabad, so the fact that he did not hate chabad is something worthy of mention. You are seriously looking for things to pick on by surfing the web for some nasty comment against litvishers.
    Wouldn’t be surprised if you google “Rav Shach ym”s and “chabad is the best” or something like that so you could use it as proof that chabad puts down others in order to make themselves look superior. Stop looking for things to fuss over…

    Out of 20+ comments regarding the recent departure of harav shteinman zt”l, there was not one negative comment. All of them were all praising him for his great attributes and improvements that he made in this world. So stop accusing us of disrespecting your gedolim,

    Gee, you never stop; it’s not even funny…
    You say that you choose to ignore my comment… and then you go on to do just the opposite!
    You have no good attack to bring up about gog umagog and lubavitch so instead you bring up old arguments such as the menorah (which you’ll probably still be talking about by Pesach). By the way, I spoke to a few friends who were in crown heights for Chanukah and they all told me that the menorah in 770 was straight, so either you’re just trying to spread false propaganda or you didn’t notice the second menorah which was straight and the curved one was simply for those who have the Minhag of having curved.

    About that incident about the gadol hador comment, you shouldn’t really judge without having seen the comment first. Besides, if I quoted all the times that mods had to step in to warn you, I would be fast asleep by the 18th comment.

    And about the word limit frustration… okay let’s help you understand step by step. It may just seem that some comments are too long but really they’re not and they just look too long because there are 2 spaces between each paragraph (a well know writing tactic that you clearly haven’t picked up on yet). In addition to simply looking nicer it also makes it easier to read. If you ever need to check if your comment is passed the word limit then you can copy and paste it onto Word to see how many words it is. Your welcome.

    Following is the Daas Torah of Maran HaGaon Rav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman zt’l Regarding GROWING A BEARD
    Emulate Other Bochurim or Disregard Them?

    Maran HaRav Shteinman was recently asked by a number of yeshiva bochurim: “The rest of the bochurim in my yeshiva do not grow their beards. Should I follow their example or not?”

    To each of them he replied that they should disregard their colleagues’ conduct.
    • To one bochur he quoted the Mishna in Ediyos (5:6): “Better to be called a shoteh your entire life than to be a rasha even once.”
    • To another he responded even more sharply: “If everyone around you is eating chazir, is that a reason for you to eat it as well?!”
    • To a third he said: “No one ever lost anything from growing a beard!”

    Maran HaRav Shteinman was once approached by a bochur who followed the opinion of the Mechaber, that one may cut his hair between Lag Ba’Omer and Shavuos. “Most of the bochurim in my yeshiva do not cut their hair until the yemei hagbalah,” he said. “Since I follow the Mechaber’s opinion, may I shave my beard before that time?”

    “Any method you use to shave your beard will be problematic,” Maran HaRav Shteinman replied. “Using an electric shaver may involve an issur de’oraysa. Even using shaving cream is not acceptable, as some say this involves the issur of lo yilbash.”

    Some claim that growing a beard demonstrates arrogance, as if he thinks he is perfect.

    “It is still better to grow a beard,” Maran HaRav Shteinman once commented. “This will protect a person spiritually to a certain extent.”

    Maran HaRav Shteinman further remarked: “The reason it was once common for yeshiva bochurim to shave is because the issur involved was not widely known.”

    RE: the shape of the menorah in 770 and around.

    There can be a billion and one reasons why it was more convenient to buy a curved Menorah rather than straight.

    To name a few: cheaper; was the only one left in the store; didn’t want to spend money on a menorah so they picked one up that they found lying around; there was another menorah that you didn’t notice which was straight and the curved one were to appease the people who had the minhag of having a curved one; The scatterbrained tzfatim (whom Iv’e explained are not your example of a Lubavitcher. they are a radicalized group of youth who go crazy all the time. never confuse a Tzfati with a regular Lubavitcher.) were not paying attention and they bought the wrong one etc.

    I think the only one being fed propaganda here is you. Lubavitchers don’t boast about other people learning tanya or going to the Ohel as you say. We completely respect other minhagim, chasidic sects and Rebbeim outside of chabad just as it says in the Torah v’ohavta L’reiacha k’mocha.

    poilishers that you see praying at the Ohel or 770, came of their own volition, whether to fundraise, or to Daven at the hailiger Rebbe’s shul. They realize and understandon their own the holiness of the Rebbe and the effect their prayers there have on them.
    There was never any deal “you come Daven at our shul, we come Daven at your shul”
    they chose to come there and good for them. but why do we have to go and travel to the belzer rebbe’s shul just because they came to us?

    Shishkabab, I never knew you were such a fierce chabad opposer. I mean, I knew that there are some people here that aren’t exactly fond of Chabad, but your comments completely threw me off balance.

    “you are a prime example of the brainwashed propaganda spewing lubavitcher.”

    Whoa, that’s vicious alright.

    “I saw an article on col on a peace meeting between lubavitch and belz. Comments were so hateful “we will never forgive them” and ” when belz change their golden menorah on the aron kodesh to a chabad/rambam menorah then we will know there is peace. REALLY!!”

    For the record, most comments on col are written by bored kids sitting at home looking for some interest in their lives; There are some people like that here too.

    “And for the record you pointed out untucked shirts and beards which is a chabad reference to meshichistim and you tried to invalidate them as a typical chabad mindset.”

    Untucked shirts and beards do not exclusively refer to meshichistim; It is a Chabad thing in general.
    and not all Lubavitchers are mishichistim. (you learn something new everyday. Your welcome)

    You guys should buy a sefer called “hadras ponim zokon” written by Moshe Weiner. It talks about the importance of keeping your beard; not even trimming it.
    The Kapischnitzer Rebbe ZT”L was one of the most biggest Torah Giants before World War 2, and he won the respect of even the litvisher gedolim including the Chazon Ish ZT”L.
    During the Holocaust, the Nazis ym”s forced the leaders of every community to clean the streets with a toothbrush. The idea was to humiliate them in front the Poles who would stand by and laugh, pointing at the elderly Rabbi with the long beard, scrubbing the streets with a toothbrush.
    On one such occasion, the Kapischnitzer Rebbe was, naturally, chosen to receive the “honor” of cleaning the streets that day.

    While he was scrubbing, a Nazi commander ordered one of his soldiers to cut off the Kapischnitzer Rebbe’s beard r”l. When the soldier approached with the big scissors in his hand, the Rebbe looked up and immediately understood what was about to happen. he held up his hand and shouted angrily “rather cut of my fingers but don’t touch my beard!”
    startled by the Rebbes stubbornness, the soldier steeped back and did not carry out his evil command. This story goes to show the great importance of having a beard, so much so that the Kapischnitzer Rebbe was willing to have all of his fingers cut off in order to keep his beard. One of the reasons why it is so important not to touch your beard is because it is written up in Zohar that the yud gimmel midas harachamim are in the strands of the beard. Cutting it off would be cutting off the yud gimmel midas harachamim.

    I’m surprised none of you blamed the Lubavitcher doctor that was caring for him, for his death.
