LOL i had the same question a while ago…December 10, 2017 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm in reply to: Spiritual Significance of Jerusalem and embassy announcement #1423904
and what i mean by not “actively opposed” is that the Rebbe did not give fiery speaches derailing the zionist state. he wasn’t particularly fond of them either. Here is a story i heard as a kid, and i know you are going question it’s validity like you do to all the other anecdotes me and 770chabad post.
there was once a printing press owned by two brothers who were staunch Zionists but nevertheless, they printed many tanyas and, i believe, likkutei sichos (collection of the Rebbe’s sichos) because they respected the rebbe’s work.
one day, a chossid walked into the printing press to pick up some sefarim the Rebbe had told him to bring. upon his arrival, the two owners of the shop pounced on him and knocked him to the floor, beating him up until he bled.
when the chossid got up,dazed, he calmly asked the brothers why they had beaten him so mercilessly. They told him the following.
They once went into the rebbe for yechidus (private audience with the rebbe) to receive a brocha for their company . After they recieved their brocha from the Rebbe, they asked him why he opposed the Israeli holiday of Yom Haatzmaut. after all, they claimed, the independence of the israeli state will surely hasten the geulah!
the Rebbe replied “oh no, it won’t hasten the eulah. on the contrary, it will delay the geulah for such and such years” (one brother recalled the Rebbe to have said a certain number of years, and the other brother remembered it to have been different. the chossid himself forgot both numbers but he said it was something around 40 or 50 years).
and that’s why they had beaten him. they were so upset at the Rebbe for how he had spoken of their holiday!December 10, 2017 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm in reply to: Spiritual Significance of Jerusalem and embassy announcement #1423894
@put don the gun
“And the lubavitcher rebbe crying against giving away an inch of Land? It seems that we would have the confidence to lecture HIM on the REAL chabad shitah. It’s a shame that I wasn’t the Chabad Rebbe instead!”
Now the real question is why your account wasn’t suspended a while ago. and the fact that mods allowed that comment to be posted….December 10, 2017 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm in reply to: Spiritual Significance of Jerusalem and embassy announcement #1423896
“If that’s the case, he went against his predecessors.”
not doing something that your predecessors did is not called “going against”December 10, 2017 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm in reply to: Spiritual Significance of Jerusalem and embassy announcement #1423892

By the way, where are jakob and joseph on this topic? (no offense; i meant that as a joke)December 10, 2017 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm in reply to: Spiritual Significance of Jerusalem and embassy announcement #1423785
“It’s pretty hypocritical of you to call it “amazing” considering the 5th, 6th and yes even 7th Lubavitcher rebbes were opposed to Zionism”
The Rebbe was not actively opposed to zionism , in fact he was on great terms with former Israeli prime ministers (and even saved Ariel Sharon’s life by telling him not to go on a certain flight he wanted to use. He later found out that that flight had been hijacked by Arabs when he was supposed to be on it). he just wasn’t fully on board with the idea that much. The rebbe was, however strongly opposed to Israel being in the UN (at that time, the UN’s Anti – semitism wasn’t that well known so the fact that the Rebbe knew in advance that they shouldn’t be there is quite a wonder. In fact just recently, Israel withdrew from the UN!) I know that your trying to start a machlokes so please stop.
if the year 6000 passes and moshiach doesn’t come then there is a mistake in our calendars.
in other words: what if the sun landed on the earth one day and 200000 people get burned. then foreign aliens fly down in parachutes and release a toxic gas whose antidote is only available in space. then, the oceans rise up and over flow flooding 5 countries.
basically stop imagining and have faith in what our rabbis have been teaching us, and await and demand his coming every day because that will hasten his arrival.
not really; paper towels are designed to absorb liquids much better than regular paper. imagine cleaning up an orange juice spill with paper…. not the same thing. say there’s no tissues around to blow your nose with, what do you use? paper towel proves a pretty good substitute for tissues. imagine blowing your nose with paper…
okay they’re not the same thing.
To all those who have been bashing me mercilessly these past few days: I didnt realize that you guys would make mountains out of mole hills out of that explanation I gave u guys. I was simply trying to explain to you close minded folk, that the concept of the rebbe being moshiach is a lot more complicated than you think
Unfortunately I underestimated your intelligence and you completely missed the whole point.
Your comments just go to show that opposition against Chabad has never ceased. There may not be people slandering the alter rebbe to get him in jail but there is still fierce opposition. Hopefully this will all end soon with the coming of Moshiach. Amen.
Sorry, it isn’t in Rambam i got confused. The Gemara discusses many times Talmidim that believed that their Rebbe is Moshiach. therefore we emulate them.
I am pretty sure there are other sources and as soon as i find them i will share them with u guys.November 18, 2017 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm in reply to: Does “Chasidish” refer to both Satmar and Lubavitch? #1405399
As a Lubavitcher, i can’t help but smile as I read your comments, discussing whether Chabad is Chasidish or not. Everyone knows (or at least educated people know) that “chasidim” refers to people whose ancestors goes back to the time of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of chasidus. highly chasidish cities in Russia include Nevel, Volozhin, Haditch, Berditchev, Lubavitch, Liadi, and much more. Lubavitch is by all means chasidish. In regards to levush, there is a separate story for that. The previous Lubavitcher Rebbes all wore streimels.
You should get in touch with Cfar Chabad, they’ll give you a list of Zals you can choose.
“Zal” is the Yiddish word that lubavitchers use to refer to “Yeshivah gedolah”
there is a Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim there you can go to.
Breslov or Chabad? big difference.
What shiur mesivtah are you in or are you going into Zal?October 15, 2017 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm in reply to: OMG 770Chabad, stop accusing YWN of hating Chabad! #1380847

go on chabad.org and click on the icon in the top right corner that says “Chabad locator” type in your zip code and it will bring a list of the closest Chabad houses near you. it will also tell you the name of the rabbi, their programs and a bunch of other details
and a few hipsters sprinkled on the top
The same person who wrote that comment also wrote a month earlier “Isn’t it obvious why they dont mix with other frum Yidden? they don’t want the children to learn their “evil misnagdishe ways”. they also will not participate in any non chabad events since they feel superioir and most likely these events will be anti-chabad in their minds.”
this is yet another example of “anti chabad”
MORE TO COME
there was an article about an anti – semitic attack in Crown Heights in which someone ripped a sheitel off of a frum woman’s head.
CR’s response? what does crown heights have to do with the litvishe world….
the same person that wrote that , opened up a thread a short while later complaining about YWN’s obsession with Crown Heights. i dont know about you but call that “Chabad Hate”

Of course, Rebbeim are gedolei yisroel but they are not referred to as such; that’s what I meant.
And there is definitely a difference between Rebbeim/gedolim and other veltishe leaders

Joseph, there is no such thing as Chassidishe Gedolim. Chassidim have Rebbeim; not Gedolim
and hanging the picture of a Rebbe or Gadol is very different than hanging just any leaderSeptember 24, 2017 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm in reply to: Is hanging pictures of leaders considered to be Avoda Zora? #1368343

Yes it was a different year. At the time it was one of the most common names in Mexico so it was an automatic “in”. Adolph was also on the list but it was taken down because it might have been considered offensive to some.
By the way, i heard that a tsunami is happening in mexico right now……
by the time im reading this topic, hurricane Irma has increased to category 5 with winds up to 175 MPH.
By the way did you know that it was really meant to be called hurricane Israel but some senate people had it taken down from the name list?

“An independent commission also issued a report recommended closing it”
Rebbyid, you come up with the weirdest topics….
Oh so that explains why your answer was a little different from what the Rebbe said. Who was the person that your friend quoted about the other answer?
very good oyyoyyoy! that is almost the correct answer! did you think of that yourself or you heard that from someone?
it is similar to the answer that the Lubavitcher Rebbe gave in one of his famous sichos.
The reason the yidden didn’t want to enter e”y was not because they were scared about losing the war but a different reason entirely.
yidden didn’t want to enter into a world of gashmius and business. in the midbar they were able to sit and learn without having to worry about financial matters.
I have a question for you guys to answer that is semi-related to this topic: After all the clear nisim that were surely maalah min hatevah such as krias yam suf, the ten plagues, the rolling stone, the “man” that fell in the desert and tasted like anything they wanted, an dozens of others, how was it possible that the yidden believed that Hashem wouldnt help them to get Eretz Yisroel from the giants? how did they come to believe the meraglim that it was impossible to attain the land? they surely should have felt invincible by the!
When Rav Elazar Shach gave a speech in 1990, lambasting secular israelis, calling them breeders of pigs and rabbits, (which later became known as the famous “rabbits and pigs speech”) the Lubavitcher Rebbe came out, calling for rav shach to apologize and saying that its not the way to be mekarev yidden.
the Rebbe’s approach to bringing yidden closer to yiddishkeit was very different to Rav shach’ s. it was not geared toward criticism as Rav shach’s approach (or reproach). telling them off and pointing out their wrongdoings did absolutely NOTHING to help the cause. So the point is basically to stop mocking Jared and Ivanka’s way of living a Jewish life. When they see the public’s opinion about them, one can expect them to drop their Jewish obsevance COMPLETELY. I, for one am sure that with time, they will gradually increase in their Jewish observance and all this talk about “open transgression” will drop dead.
