(Chosson saying al cheit BeYom HaChasunah.) Mottel's blog
Maybe I am too sensitive, but that's what makes me the person I am. It's not the most perfect makeup of a person ever created but it's a lot better than some of the other nasty, bitter, unkind and rude creations out there on G-d's green earth. Maybe I do owe RYGB an apology, especially after he opened his home to me, albeit only for some watermelon on a Shabbos afternoon. Maybe it was the fact that his comment came at the heels of the other ones who were poking and prodding at the Rosh's time of grief and sorrow. I know RYG is a great, warm-hearted guy, so to him I'll definitely apologize. As far as the other nosey bodies who couldn't help but ask if he's Lubavitch, his wife, his kids, how much? All I can say is get a life, a life of your own, that is, not based on other people's ups and downs, but based on your doings and accomplishments. Yes, people can make life's changes 50 years ago and still stand by their decisions, even if some of the circumstances have changed.
Oh, and I attended another non-hesped levaya today. I think the rules need to be changed, Lubavitchers. There's No time to mourn, and people want and need to be inspired. The Rosh did it in a very non-hesped way, why can't it be done other niftorim as well?!
Oh! and for your Shabbos table; a mayseh with the Modzitzer Rebbe and Reb Chaim Ayzer zt"l about kashes affen eybershten..
