Who says we don't do אתכפיא ?
This is what I had to listen to in the car tonight on the way back from Manhattan, and it was a 2 hour trip!
"I don't know how to say this; but when the Rebbe was alive" etc.
"They don't know how to sing Niggunim"
Son: "Totty, what does Lubavitch do today on Yat Kislev"?
Father: "eh, who cares"!
Man in back seat: The shluchim are in all far-flung places and they struggle BeRuchnius and BeGashmius, it's mamesh a pele! They have such Koyches!
Father: "Yeeees, but they do a lot of harm in Russia to other groups who work there."
MIBS: "why is that"?
Father: "They're Amiratzim".........
And all this from a man in his 60's, a scion of many Chasidishe dynasties, although his education came from -------------------
You guessed it, Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin!
Go speak to such people...............
And all the while the Tzig sat there and didn't say a word!
