sure we have to learn all parts of torah and keep mitsvos. and this is what lubavitchers do like all frum yidden. walk in to any lubavitcher yeshiva and you will see for yourself that most of the day they learn gemara and shulchan aruch. but with learning chasidus you come to the understanding that the purpose of the whole creation of the world is that yidden through learning torah and doing mitsvos will bring the world to the state how it will be when mashiach arrives, how can you not be obsessed with mashiach especially when believing/knowing/feeling that we are very close to the geula???November 5, 2018 11:11 am at 11:11 am in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1617441
why is it that there are so many yidden from different circles becoming close to chabad or even joining chabad and learning chasidus chabad, but hardly if any chabad chasidim becoming satmar or belz etc. or joining the litvish circles?
could anyone explain to me why are we even discussing this????????????
as mentioned before, we daven every day VE’AL TEVIANU …..vloi lidai nisa’yon.
also, its not enough to raise children sheltered, we must incorporate in the sheltered chinuch the strength and the tools to deal with challenges that come up in life. learning sifrei musar and chesidus is a necessity today. and children should made to be happy and proud to be frum and a yarei shama’yim.
i do know what a moment of silence is.
and sure its not going to stop murders היל”ת. but even if it stops one murder it was worth it.
are we done with ‘lubavitch hats’?
ok, lets go on to the velvet round hats. i have seen many have the bow of the ribbon on the right side of the hat. i think its more common to have it on the left side. anyone know the significance of having it on the right or the left?
lets think about the thousands of dollars spent on weddings, and the debts the mechutanim go into, for things not necessary, but EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING IT SO WE CANT NE DIFFERENT.
hakoras hatov is obviously very important, but how to show it or what gift to get? this depends on the host. the hakoras hatov or the gift should be befitting the host.
you may be surprised how the one you are jealous of is actually jealous of you, of all the good qualities you possess and of all the good things in your life.

LIGHTBRITE, every relationship is diferent. you may be a fantastic spouse and a horrible parent, or the oposite. you may be a fantastic friend but a horrible partner. there are diferent rulles and tacticts and tools etc. for evry type of relationship.
so when it comes to shiduchim, you must do lots of homework. and the rest you leave up to hashem and trust Him.
and for yourself, today there are so much profesional therapy to help you change your character defects. and if you know your shortcomings and willing to seek help to chenge, you are already half way through.
CTL. thanks for puting a smile on my face lol
just went on this thread to see what the rich are talking about lol
calling it as i see it.
i encourage to talk about it at the table or with individuals during the week. just express in a nice way how you feel about it. one should be able to express his thoughts and feelings without fear. but it must be in a respectful way. not knocking them but rather just saying how you feel about it.
another good segula for shiduchim is to be in touch with good shadchanim and have bitochon in Hashem who sets up the shiduchim.
MAZAL TOV in advance lol
NEVILLE CB…..oihev lubavitch.
sure, the city NEVILE in russia was knowen as a chasidishe lubavitche shtetel.
the miteler rebbe expressed himself: HALELUHU BENEVEL……….
another advantage by wearing the talis katan out: the tzitzis have to be hanging on the KANAF – the edge of the beged. if you tuck in the TK then you pick up the tzitzis to be out of the pants and the tzitzis are not on the kanaf. unless you really have long tzitzis. by wearing the TK out the tzitzis are always hanging on the kanaf. i saw some also shleping the corners of the beged over their pants for that reason, but then they are loosing the shiur of the beged which should be spread out.
i am sure that years ago wearing the talis katan out was a chesidishe thing. most wore the talis katan tucked in, only the more chesidishe wore the TK out.
i will rewrite my drasha.
tosfos in soteh referes to the gmara about kalev kipshuto. it connects it to another gmara in taanis dealing with hanhaga lemaase.
תענית דף ט”ז ע”א למה יוצאין לבית הקברות פליגי בה….וחד אמר כדי שיבקשו עלינו מתים רחמים
not the gmara or rashi or tosfos in both places have a problem with this.
plus: rashi in parshas shlach brings this gmara about kalev. rashi explains peshat. rashi says many times “ani lo basi lefaresh ela peshuto shel mikra”.
plus” the rashbam in shlach also brings the gemara about kalev and says ” hagada nir’is peshat”.

the pri megadim brings the maharil and says:
ובסידור מענה לשון יש תפלות מה שאומרים על הקברים משמע קצת שמבקשים מאת הנפש שיליץ טוב בעדנו.
מנחת אלעזר חלק א’ סימן סח ודאי כוונת המהרי”ל דלא ישים מגמתו שהמת יושיעו באיזה כח דזהו בודאי עון פלילי אך כשמבקש מהמת שימליץ טוב בעדו להשי”ת בשמי מעלה בודאי גם המהרי”ל מודה דאין חשש וזהו כוונתו שלא ישים מגמתו נגד המתים בעצמם אבל לבקש להמליץ בעדו אין חשש.
בספר ‘הערות’ למסכת סוטה דף ךד ע”ב מובאת הכרעת הגרי”ש אלישיב זצ”ל דמזה שאנו אומרים תפלת ‘מכניסי רחמים’ שכביכול אנו מתפללים למלאכים, משמע שאנו נוקטים כדעה שניתן לפנות בבקשה אל המתים, אלא שצריך להזהר בזה שהבקשה היא שימליצו טוב בעדנו ולא שנחשוב שזה בכוחם להרע או להיטיב.
וכן הובאה דעת בעל הקהילות יעקב בספר ‘אורחות רבנו’ חלק א עמוד שה ”אמר לי מו”ר שתפלתנו על קברי צדיקים היר שאנו מבקשים מהם שיתפללו עבורנו”.
About what Harav Kook said: That’s for one to decide about himself wether he is on the level for this chumra, not that one should judge someone else if the other one who does keep the chumra is on that level.
Plus: I can understand if an individual takes on a chumra which is not common practice, but I am talking about minhagim and hiddur mitzvos practiced by thousands of yidden for generations, and they are doing it by instructions of their Rebbes, Roshei Yeshivos, Gedolei Hadar, or at least with the full knowledge of their Rebbes, Roshei Yeshivos and Gedolim.
What kind of a derech is it to be mekatreg on thousands of yidden that ‘maybe’ they are doing something wrong? Why not use the time and brains and energy to be melamed zchus on thousands of yidden and find sources to their minhagim and hidurim?
I wish you all the best.
about untucked shirts:
maybe maybe it comes from many older chasidim that had and have their talis koton untucked. beacause according to the alter rebbe the shiur required for a talis koton should be spread out and not folded or creased. thats why chabad wears a bendel on the talis koton to keep the talis koton spread out all day, but many of the older generation had their talis koton out for that reason so they can always make sure its spread out. so if their talis koton was out so obviously their shirt had to be out too.
its a good sign when you miss a family member. its shows your connection and feelings and love to that member. unfortunantly many people do not miss their mother or other family members who live far away.
yes sure its not easy when that family member is not with you but im just pointing out a posotive point in this.
a freilichen yom tov.
תוספות in סוטה refers to the גמ’ about בלב כפשוטו. us connects it to another gemara in taanis dealing with הנהגה למעשה.
תענית דף טז ע”א למה יוצאין לבית הקברות פליגי בה ……וחד אמר כדי שיבקשו עלינו מתים רחמים. not the gemara or rashi or tosfos in both places have a problem with this.
plus: rashi in shlach brings this gemara about kalev. rashi explains peshat. rashi says many times אני לא באתי לפרש אלא פשוטו של מקרא.
plus: the רשב”ם in שלח also brings the gemara about kalev and says: הגדה נראית פשט.

כתיבה וחתימה טובה לשנה טובה ומתוקה בגשמיות וברוחניות
WOW! we are talking about a מנהג practiced by thousands and thousands of yidden for generations, many who are rebbes, rabonim, roshei yeshivos, talmidei chachomim muflagim, shomrei torah umitzvah who are medakdek bekala uvachamura, mekayemei mitzvos behidur, 2 pairs of tefilin, big tefilin to be yotze the opinion that אצבעיים על אצבעיים is the בית itself not including the תיתורא, wearing only wool talis katan evem in the summer, big talis katan and making sure the beged is spread out all day as the opinion that the shiur has to be spread out, not shaving as most פוסקים hold, not drinking even water out of the sukka, wearing a gartel during davening as it says in shulchan aruch and not looking for קולות, etc. etc. etc. and not being satisfied with keeping all this themselfs but going with מסירת נפש to all corners of the glob to bring yidden closer to yiddishkeit, are you saying that these yidden are being oiver a safek d’oraita??? and how didnt it enter your mind that maybe maybe maybe these yidden have a מקור for this practice, and maybe some of the yidden know how to learn just abit better then you?
The truth is i wasnt sure if i should reply to you. it seems to me that you are not interested in finding out the source to this practice. you are interested in just attacking heiligge yidden that may have diferent costoms then yourself. and whatever source i will bring you will knock it and twisted to your agenda. but i did decide to reply, because you are a yid and your essence is good, and maybe you will change your attitude. plus maybe some readers realy want to have some clarification on this matter.
so lets start with 2 sources (one i mentioned above but for some reason you ignored it). מסכת סוטה דף לד ע”ב ויעלו בנגב ויבא עד חברון ויבאו מיבעי לי’ אמר רבא מלמד שפירש כלב מעצת מרגלים והלך ונשתטח על קברי אבות אמר להן אבותי בקשו עלי רחמים שאנצל מעצת מרגלים.
תוספות there brings 2 more sources. this גמ,is brought down in רש”י פ’ שלח.
קיצור שולחן ערוך סימן קכח סעיף יג נוהגין לילך בערב ר”ה אחר תפלת שחרית לבית הקברות להשתטח על קברי הצדיקים ונותנים שם צדקה לעניים ומרבים תחנונים לעורר את הצדיקים הקדושים אשר בארץ המה שימליצו טוב בעדנו ביום הדין.
avi k i wanto wish you a כתיבה וחתימה טובה לשנה טובה ומתוקה.
i strongly suggest you visit the rebbe’s ohel before rosh hashana. (no one will know :))
I am a few generations chabad. i dont know anyone davening to the rebbe chas vesholom. people ask the rebbe to daven for you to hashem. as kolev did visiting chevron etc. etc. the opening words in ones kvitel to the rebbe is אנא לעורר רחמים רבים ………anyone davening to the rebbe is not chabad.August 22, 2018 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1579022

just because they looked in chumesh, doesnt make them not tinok shenishba. they didnt go to a cheder, no real frum chinuch, no frum parents, not learning chumesh from a frum teacher.August 14, 2018 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm in reply to: If a pig was genetically modified to chew its cud, would it be kosher? #1574199
there is a chakira whether the simanim are the cause that makes the animal kosher? or its just a sign that the animal is kosher for other reasons?
listen my dear friends. we are avoiding the main issue.
we all know that there are many yidden would never go to a place where there is no minyan and no mikva to be used before davening. and there are those that they would go without even thinking its an issue.

dovidBT. achdus does not mean you should give a hechsher on something or someone that does not deserve it. achdus does not mean you eat in someones house where the standarts of kashrus is not your standart. achdus means that you show that any yid is special to you and you love him and you are friendly.

the fact is people dont have sech a TAAVA to eat traif or mechalel shabbos etc. but the tava to gilui arayos or avisreihoo….is very strong. אין אפיטרופוס לעריות. and its so easy to fall. one press of a botton and you are deep deep in a mud whole, and then its even harder to keep back ה’ ישמרנו.
and the fact is that many many finne yidden who do not eat tyraif and do not mechalel shabbos and daven 3 times a day. and have mehuderdige tefilin etc. etc. unfortunantly have fallen in the mud whole through computer and phone, and have caused so much tsoros for themselfes and their families. people have lost their families, jobs, health ה’ ישמרנו מכל צרה
ADAM NEIRA. about D in your post, please look in Sanhedrin p. 98 b, and in rash”i there the first pshat. its very clear that there is an opinion in gmara that moshiach ‘has already lived and will return a second time’.
