My, how times have changed!
Reb Mordche Doovid in the Hamptons
In the good old days when the Ungers lived in Crown Heights and when they were about to leave and wanted to sell their shul things were not so "איי איי איי" between them and the Lubavitchers. [I mean RMD's father.] RMD spent the summer weeks in the Hamptons, and his religious needs were tended to by, who else? the local Shliach, Leibel Baumgarten, a relative of RMD, who brought Bochurim to complete the Minyan. In other words, if not for them וואלט מען געדארפט ברענגען באבאווער בחורים to the Hamptons!
Nowadays, it seems like we're letting bygones be bygones, and that's a good thing. Cooperation and co-existence between our peoples should be encouraged.
After all, aren't we all G-d's children?
