    My suspicion is that EJMBro IS a moderator (or something like it), and he creates topics because he’ll get fired if there are not enough new topics every day, so he creates silly threads and they are let through.

    Just a few months on this coffee room, and I already know everyone’s political views just from all of the tens of politics threads (which everyone says the same things).
    If nobody knows my view (everyone else feels that the whole wide world needs to know their opinions) on politics, then here it is:
    Biden is an old, sloppy loser, a puppet for the left to check off the things on their agenda.
    Trump is not the best speaker, but the best president he was. Anybody who can say that he was not good for the jews must be drunk or something like that, anyone with a human brain can understand how good trump was for the yidden.
    I think trump should run for pres and desantis for vp.

    There are sadly some yidden who got brainwashed by the media and left, and they suffer from a loss of knowledge and an overflowing of fake news.

    And NO, I am not sick of trump.

    “We need frum doctors, lawyers, engineers, computer scientists etc. and they will not magically appear from graduates of yeshivos who can only mimimally function in language, science and mathematical disciplines.”
    That’s funny, I’ve always been hearing and saying that there are enough frum doctors and lawyers, they need to get better jobs. Its funny how you think we need more. I don’t know which country you live in, but there are plenty.

    Indian rhinos have only one horn.
    Plus, chazal say the Tachash had only one horn. So it is possible.

    It is not like the “unicorn” is described by the goyim, rather a thing that they may be basing it off. But if it did exist, it is not around anymore.
    Why can’t it be the tachash? It was colorfull with all the colors and the most beautiful animal. It also had one horn, but it was not a horse. And the goyim made up many details that are not true, but it is pretty much like the tachash. I don’t believe that the Tachash IS THE unicorn, but there could have been something like it.


    @smerel

    There is a mysterious kind of a deer mentioned in the Torah called a “Yachmor – 蚳” (it is not a donkey, it’s a mysterious animal which some hold is a type of deer) Maybe this animal that your talking about is the Yachmor?

    Ok, I’ll rephrase it: The Lubavitcher Rebbe, R’ Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, Zecher Tzaddik V’kaddosh L’vrocha Zechuso Yagen Aleinu, was the Nasi Hador when he was alive on earth. Avraham Yitzchok and Yaakov and Moshe and Dovid and Shlomo and Rava and Abbayeh and Rav Hai Gaon and all the tzaddikim are still alive, just not physically.
    And if anyone complains that we can’t call the Rebbe the Nasi Hador, since not everyone accepts him, then you can have the same taane by calling someone the Gadol Hador, even though not everybody accepts him.

    I know the stories are for sure not true. The person who wrote them in his book said that they were made up. But that is not where we know the golem of prague from. I don’t if know if for sure it’s true, but it’s not for sure not true.
    I know of a story that the Rayaatz, the fifth lubavitcher rebbe, once went to prague with his father, the Rashab, when he was a kid. They were visiting the Altnue shul and the Rayaatz was so filled with curiosity that he snuck up to the attic, and looked around. I’m not sure what he saw, but the Rashab was very harsh with him and told him that he suffered for months after because of what he did.
    Now, even if there weren’t any remains found, it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen – we can’t either find a the aron or any of the keilim, they were hidden so well.
    The maharal wanted nobody to find his golem, he knew how desrutcive it could be. It’s very possible on of his talmidim hid the remains so nobody could use it again.
    I think he hid it between the seforim.

    @GadolHaDorah
    If you have a problem with this thread, then go tell all your freinds to become more tzniusdik and start an organization encouraging women to keep the halachos of tznius. I don’t believe you don’t know anyone that isn’t following the halachos of tznius properly. Go and get them to follow the halachos properly, and then tell the coffee room members to be quiet. It seems like you yourself have a problem with tznius. And discussing it on the coffee room can actually bring a good result.

    Hashem sees the future. If someone is a ger, Hashem knew he will become a ger and create a bashert for him.
    And everyone marries their bashert. If you think someone is your bashert but you don’t end up marrying them, then they were not actually your bashert. Bashert means the one who you will marry. Hashem will lead you there.

    I agree that Hashem’s ratzon can never be a chilul Hashem. But you can twist Hashem’s ratzon and claim and believe that what your doing is Hashem’s ratzon but it isn’t actually.
    I don’t go around thinking that as long as I’m doing Hashem’s ratzon, then I shouldn’t watch out that I could possibly be making a chilul Hashem. I go around trying to not make a chilul Hashem, period. If you go around thinking that whatever your doing can’t be a chilul Hashem, because in your mind your doing the ratzon Hashem. Don’t take me wrong, I believe that you do the ratzon Hashem all the time. But the mindset that whatever you do is okay, since its what Hashem wants, even if its a chilul Hashem is not lechatchila. Better to watch not to make a chilul Hashem, but of course, always, every single second, you should be doing the ratzon Hashem.

    Chabad shluchim, in order to attract non-frum college students and alike, to bring them back to rheir roots, do compete against the goyim. And do you disagree with that?

    “When chabad writes about the rebbe, they can be talking to goyim, and hes the rebbe, because hes everyones rebbeh, the nasi hador, a messianic candidate, and some say more.”
    Are you agreeing with that statement you said? Why then are you saying it as if it’s true?

    My rebbe is the lubavitcher rebbe, and in my world he is the rebbe. And in my view, he was the nasi hador when we were still zoche to have him alive physically. I’m not sure what kind of stuff ou know about the rebbe, but he cared about all the yidden. The other gedolim and tzadikim cared fore a lot of klal yisrael-or most of the frum- but not all. And that’s why the rebbe was so into kiruv and sent thousands of shluchim across the world to connect every jew with torah and mitzvos.
    And if you don’t agree with that, then you don’t have to agree.

    I’m just telling you why we think that the rebbe was the nasi hador. And you won’t really change our opinion no matter how many posts you write saying lubavitchers are wrong to believe in their rebbe as a great leader. Nobody is imposing on you that you have to call the lubavitcher rebbe “the rebbe”. Your now trying to impose on us that we can’t believe or say that the rebbe is the nasi hador. (Let alone the fact that some people view some gedolim as the Gedolei Hador and making everyone else view that the same way because he is is the gadol hador, and if anyone says that he isnt, that a different gadol is, then he is shaming the gadol hador! How dare he!)

    Avira,
    I can tell (I knew a long time ago) that you are not chassidish from any chassidus.
    Ask a satmar chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the satmar rebbe.
    Ask a gerrer chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the gerrer rebbe.
    Ask a belzer chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the belzer rebbe.
    Ask a bobover chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the bobover rebbe.
    Ask a breslover chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the breslover rebbe.
    Ask a sanzer chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the sanzer rebbe.
    Ask a vizhnitzer chossid who “the rebbe” is, and he will tell you the vizhnitzer rebbe.

    My point is, that lubavitchers call him “the rebbe”, because he is our rebbe. He is the closest of all the rebbes to us, and to us he is the rebbe, he is our rebbe and that’s my rebbe. And since he is our rebbe, we believe that he is the rebbe.
    And to a belzer chossid, the rebbe is the belzer rebbe, and he is “the rebbe”. And he is the rebbe, more important than all other rebbes, because he is their rebbe.

    Think of it like this: Your rosh yeshiva, you have much of a closer relationship with him than the rosh yeshiva of a different yeshiva. In your mind, he is “the rosh yeshiva”.
    It’s not so hard to understand.

    I was trying to clarify what you were saying, so you seem to be saying that you’re like a hindu?
    If a yid would be davening on an airplane, if he would davening out loud, not caring about anyone else around him. B’emes, he is doing the ratzon Hashem, meaning, he is davening with a lot of hislahavus and energy.
    But the other people on the flight are getting annoyed and this paints a picture that religious jews disturb people in order to do their commandments and make everyone else need to get irritated by it.

    Your saying that it doesn’t matter whether you make a kiddush Hashem or a chilul Hashem, they are both great, as long as it’s ‘the right thing’.

    Sounds like a pretty foolish thing to say.
    So you’re saying, in some cases (when you’re doing ‘the right thing’) making chilul Hashem is CH”V a good thing?

    (Even though this conversation is long over,) you won’t find every frum community accepting one gadol to be the Gadol Hador. There doesn’t “HAVE” to be one Gadol Hador. It won’t happen until we get out of galus.
    For Example: I might say that in the later 1900’s the Lubvaitcher Rebbe was the Gadol Hador. A Satmar Chossid will believe that the Satmar Rebbe was the Gadol Hador. A Litvack will say a different posek. The Sephradim also. To have one posek who everyone follows will simply not happen until moshiach.
    Everyone should follow their own Rov to pasken halacha.

    Having a special dinner on thanksgiving is considered celebrating it. Because why have something special on that day? Have it any random day. So then you would be celebrating it. It’s like giving gifts on chanukah. If you give gifts all year round, and you happen to give gifts at the time that falls out on chanukah, then no problem. But if you do it just on Chanukah, because the goyim also do it, then it’s a problem.
