Some people just don't get it, they look at these human beings, men of no special characteristics, who make it their life's mission to seek out and teach other Jews about their unclaimed heritage, and they see monsters. These are not scions of Chassidic dynasties who live off the masses because they're not allowed to procure paying jobs, they're regular guys, sometimes less than average, who do great things. Many have flaws, but they've attained greater things than we ever will, and their merits are immeasurable.
