Another explanation which might not go so well here is that 7 is within the bounds of Teva as it represents a week which is teva while 8 is beyond the limits of teva, the miracle of chanukah was a miracle that was higher then nature which is represented by the 8th day.
I heard several explanations.
1. They put in a little oil each day and it still lasted even though it was an 8th of what they really needed
2. they didn’t even have enough for one day and the little they did not only lasted 1 day but also another 7.
3. Beating the yevonim is commemorated by the first day and the other 7 are in addition to that day (I don’t really understand this one)
Of course we are missing something! what happened to good old latkes!
you call this a living?
The real question is what does Reb Eliezer have to say about this?

>There is no way he will run. He is in it for the money at this point.
If that’s true he lost half his wealth over presidency.

Reb Eliezer please can Coffee Addict have a heter to give me a brocho?
I think that now I understand that some people here are anti Chabad inside and they don’t plan on changing, I think I’m going to leave this discussion if this is the way you treat a tzaddik.
So…. what is a godol.
I find it hilarious that a bunch of zundels on the cr the rebbe is not considered a godol. Have you read his reshimus on nigleh? He was a genius when it came to gemerah and such, Talmidei chachamim came to the Rebbe to ask shailos they had on pshat of a gemerah. The rebbe never showed off his genius as other individuals have. There is a story that at the rebbes chasona, rebeim from all sects and big gedoilim came to the wedding. They mainly came for the kalahs side as it was from a rabbinical dynasty. When the previous rebbe told certain gedoilim to talk torah with the rebbe they where blown away. When they came back from telling the previouse rebbe what a great son in law he has, to discuss more torah, the rebbe said that he was told to discuss with him torah by his father-in-law but now that he left and came back he wasnt instructed to discuss torah and he didnt want to because of his humility.
So… what is a godol?
cmon please. one brocha
>And in fact, in some litvishe schools, they put the lubavitcher rebbe down!
i can attest that litvishe bochuim have come up to me and mocked the Rebbe in disgusting ways that they would never say about other gedoilim or even poshiter yidden.
>Buddy, you can’t make things worse
> “but he is listing things he has legitimately learned and experienced from living as a chabadnik (if I am remembering his story correctly)”
what do you mean
Avira Chabad has enough politics and fights and they don’t see a point in having more. the rambam says that if someone’s not going to listen to you, your not meant to tell them off.
Im a righty because… i write with my right hand

As the head of the “Australian team” I’ve gotta say here in Sydney is a pretty good community.
>It’s just kind of obvious.
I wasn’t trying to hide anything.
“A neighbor who is lubavitch came to my house for something and did not recognize the gedolim who’s pictures I have in my living room”
we have nothing against other gedoilim (not including…) but we do tend to know about our personal Rebbes because they are our rebbes. There are enough non lubavitchers to know about other gedoilim. i do think its important to educate ones children on other gedoilim but i do think its more important for LUBAVITCHER children to be educated more on their rebbes mainly because of the ideology of chabad and their understanding of a godol.
>What you reallllllly don’t want to hear, but you kinda proved it yourself in your extra post, is that you are the ones who come to shtuch
didn’t I make it obvious that we also have this issue.
Reb Eliezer I have a feeling that is a completely diffrent case. Reform is not a way of serving hashem
Syag, give me a second
We went to the outback once in australia to a small town and found a person who didnt know he was jewish.
Yabia, did you put on teffilin with him?
Im a little biased on this issue because of my upbringing, but in my community mussar is extremely frowned upon. You gotta be positive not negative. some times you gotta give mussar but even then it should be in a soft way while injecting chizuk into there.
