Crying For Klal Yisroel
People speak about Rabbonim and Poskim as being a Rabbon Shel Kol Bnei HaGoloh. They say that the fact that this Rebbe has the most Chassidim, or that this Rov is the greatest Posek is what makes him the leader of the generation. I disagree. This video clip isn't meant to show anybody up, or to pat myself on the back saying how my Rebbe is bigger than yours. It's the point that the Rebbe asks for Klal Yisroel. This is what makes one a LEADER. The fact that he feels a responsibility to all Jews - not just to his adherents - shows that he has at least the ability to lead. One that worries only about Bnei Torah, or Heimishe may be doing a service, but it's not on the farnem of a LEADER.
