I've decided to go all out here in regards to CH Rabbonim election and the ensuing politics. From Day One, that is.


?ר' איד, וואס לאכט איר אזוי? אויף וועמענ'ס חשבון


?ר' עמרם? איר זענט אויך דא

? איך גלייב נישט. וואס זוכט דער בורשטינער צדיק דארט? ער פלעגט דאווענען אלץ קינד ביי אים אין שול?

.....דער גרויסער פאטער , היינט שעפט ער שוין נחת פונעם זונ'דל


DALOY HUNGARIANS IN LUBAVITCH!!!!

I'm not sure what brought this on now. Maybe it was the passing of Reb Moshe Morozov, who was once very actively involved in the whole process, before old age prevented him from continuing. Or maybe it was the fact that people ask me all kinds of questions and I figure that if they get their info elsewhere it might not be as good as if they get here. But I want it all here on the table, going back to ששת ימי בראשית. Why, after years of using Rav Osdoba for their agenda, they decided that he isn't good for them anymore, and especially why the Russians decided now that a young Hungarian is good for them and their agenda? I'd like your input, please. I know the answers, more or less, I just wanna hear ALL the details here. Years ago they needed Rav Marlow for their power struggle and they got him and used him, but what good is Braun for them now?

I started this thread on Thursday, when we weren't sure if there would be a Hachtoroh or not, but now that there was one last light, and they brought out anybody that RYYB had a shaychus with as a child until he joined Lubavitch, I'm even more intrigued. I look around at those in attendance and all I see is rabblerousers, troublemakers and those looking to destroy Lubavitch for personal reasons. And, of course, locals looking for a bite to eat and a way to pass the time. And some bachurim. And they too were sent to the coronation by the leadership of OT, which also is part of the troublemaking crowd, as was the MC, one of the first to make himself big by destroying what others built with their sweat and tears, and using the "Moshiach" issue to the appeal to the ass - , I mean masses. I don't usually discuss internal Lubavitch politics, but I'll do it, and may G-d forgive me, for I know not what I'm doing here.

I thought so too, but R' Braun looks like he's in their pocket.

He will screw them all both sides!!!

and I spoke to reb amram today he said he wasa tricked into coming and was told that all parties are in agreement... he was lied to... but as always hopefully he will give out a letter saying so.

Last night was truly sad. While repeating calls for achdus, without the Braun family friends all we'd see there were the same old partisan faces. Sad.

The lesson of why Moshe Rabeinu had to spend all that time in midyan is brought out very clearly here. Braun won simply because he was a fresh new face that wasn't (yet) mixed into all the filthy local politics. The masses voted for him out of disgust for the locals and a naïve hope for the future, and here you have him laughing all the way to the bank. The problem now is that osboda will be forced to resign as per not obeying the psak din, like it or not. He should have showed his face and taken r rosenbeg et al to a din torah starting this morning for the issues raised.
Truth to be said, braun does make a nice first impression as someone who will take his job seriously and try to raise the banner of Kan tzivo once again.

The arrival of R. Braun is a "tipping point" in contemporary Lubavitch affairs. Please give us your analysis in a clear and comprehensible manner. You know the actors on the stage-let's hear what's really going on.

all the infighting? haha. Please. In Satmar a "coronation like this would have cops from 123 precincts rushing to the scene. Here we had bulkes and Yechi. And I was talking about the town of Lakewood, not BMG. Lakewood is far bigger than BMG.

Gedalya said...

Shvei is a nice man.Anybody who knows him will tell you this.Including yours personally who knows him, despite my personal problems with Lubavitch and their theology
BUT
The problem is not Shvei's.It's lemaloh bekeidesh.People who know Lubavitch well, know that The Meshichisten are the ones carrying on the problems started years ago when Lubavitch decided to go on their strange path.
If you keep up with Lubavitch you"ll see that slowly but surely their theological issues are coming out of the woodwork for all to see.All those sichos that had been shushed up.What other Yiddishe group has ever had a "shlit'a" problem???With so many people "rabbonim" not accepting gimmel tammuz?.This is only a precursor of the "borenuniks"
Sad, but true.
Marlow , btw, was also a Yechi zogger

Gedalya said...

"And I was talking about the town of Lakewood"
Lakewood has it's share of problems like anywhere else.If anything it's in better shape than most frum places.

One thing we have to realize is that of the derech youth, human passions are something innate to humankind, since Odom Horishon.This is a Satmar,Litvishe,Chabad and everyone elses "problem".I do believe that Frum infighting makes ALL youth less respecful of their beliefs

Gedalya said...

"He just sold his soul for the job.."

He did not sell his soul, he is a feineh mentsch.The problem is what is worse for a manhig in a public role:Someone who believes in this trash or a faker who at least knows wrong from right?

HT, I'd love to set u straight but don't have the time. So I'll just point out a few things.
1. The first comment is onto something, IMHO the yechis r going to regret bring braun on. He's an independent thinker and won't tow their line.
2. Shvei is a gentleman, major talmid chochom and no fifth chelek or (for lack of a better word) testicles of his own. He's a puppet of some major baalei macholokes who put him in as their front man. He can't think for himself and will do whatever he is told.
3. NS is an unterveltnik baal machlokes who uses his position to advance his agenda. He may have overplayed his hand last night, and that might be the most interesting thing to watch for the next few weeks.

stating my opinion doesn't make me an Anti-Semite, my friend.

Anybody who knew him knew the Meshichism wasn't real. Nor was it by R Osdoba.

"stating my opinion doesn't make me an Anti-Semite, my friend.

That's correct. Your underlying vile opinions do. (where did i state otherwise?)


"Anybody who knew him knew the Meshichism wasn't real."

Talk for yourself! You sound ridicules! I actually knew an erliche, chassidisher yid who actually took his rebbe's words at face value (sorry you weren't told about this when joining Lubavitch, but that's the custom here).

Again, i implore you to stick to topics you're familiar with! (I'll appreciate it - if i could still get myself to return to this blog again...)

HT, shmerel is partly right. RM was a meshichist thru and thru. He wasn't into the chanting and flag-waving, but he was definitely a yechi guy. This blinded him to to the company he kept and they used him to kasher their drek and political agenda. His biggest fault was not seeing where the fisher mess will lead to, and by the time he caught on to what he was being dragged into, it was too late and he was stuck with it.

You're right about one thing, shmerel is probably some 20 yo shnook who only knows what some "mashpia" fed him and we now know which side his loser mashpia was on.

Reminds me of the old vort, when Klal Yisroel thought Moshe died, why did they make an Egel of gold, they had Aaron, Yehosuah, Chur etc. Answer, “better a cow from afar than a Gadol from here”. There is also a Shut Chasam Sofer about certain towns not allowing a loacl to become Rov.

Braun won because Rabbi Bogomilsky was an older person who has arbitrated hundreds of DIn Torahs and the people who lost in his DIN TOrahs voted against him..

CH is not a majority of Michichits.

Look on the bima last night Reb AMram was lied to and was told the both Rabbis would attend.

Were there any ROshei Yeshiva from any yeshiva there? were there any member of Tsach ( Butman etc ) were there anybody from Bais SHmuel of Kolel Yungerleit , were there anybody who didn't wear a yechi pin there.

Take away the bochurim who came just to watch the spectacle ( which was a 25 to 1 ration bochur to yungerman )

You have a total of maybe 150-200 yungerleit also most BT's who attended....

Look closely....

Was Rabbi GOrelik a michichist rov who speaks each week in 770 there? was Rabbi Heller there?? Abir Shababrim... ???

Was any of the mazkirus there??

THe answer is NO!!!!

The Braun side won with close to 100 votes, his side was more aggressive and was leading a dirty campaign vs. the other side, I don't think the din torahs of Rav Bobemilisky had anything to do with his loss, but you saw from the votes that the Meshichstin are not the majority of the vote in CH

Anonymous 7:53:00,

You remind me of a story i recently read:

Yossel was known as the town Mishugg’ne. He walked with his head down, and kept pretty much to himself. He smelled pretty bad, and was very, very simple – without much brains, thus he earned himself that title.

One day, Yossel was walking along the road, and as he was walking, a Goyishe Nobleman was riding by on his horse. As he passed near Yossel, the nobleman mistaking dropped a purse full with money. Picking up the purse, Yossel ran after the horse screaming “hey, you dropped your purse!” at first, the nobleman brushed “this Jew” off, but Yossel didn’t give up, and kept on chasing him. Finally, the nobleman stopped to find out what “this Jew” wanted, and Yossel told him about his purse. Without even giving a thank you, the Goy grabbed his purse, and rode off.

All the townspeople started laughing at Yossel, saying “wow, you must really be a Mishugg’ne, you had a fortune in your hand… you could’ve done so many good things with that money, and instead you gave it to that Goy who is going to do who-knows-what with!”

Yossel then picked up both of his hands and cried out: “Ribono Shel Olam, oh, how I thank you for making me a Mishugg’ne, for if I would have a “normal” person; I would’ve been a thief!”

Rabbi Braun is a nice person. My personal impression is that he is a raving raving Meshichist and that he is of the view that the ONLY person who can be Moshiach is the last Rebbe z"l. Ask him that question with a simple yes/no answer and you will see what I mean. That reflects Chabad today, though; the vast majority are (still) Meshichisten, it's just a question of how open they are about it (or covert).

Does anyone in Melbourne, for example, think that because Rabbi A. Blesofksy took down his huge Moshiach awning that he has changed his opinion and he now is "unsure" if the last Rebbe will be Moshiach?

How can a rav with a ounce of yiras shomaim leave a case so unsolved as this? there was a din torah but with no solution.

Is his son of North Miami also a Meshichist?"

He definitely doesn't proclaim it & keeps it to himself. He's a very learned, intelligent yungerman who decided after his father's petirah to not pursue the rabbonus in CH as a yerusha bec he saw where it was heading with the machlokes and the agmas nefesh his father had.

In general, there's different levels of meshichistin.

1. People who believe the Rebbe is moshiach, but proclaiming it is irrelevant, and it's not important in the big scheme. The main thing is to prepare the world for Moshiach thru Torah, mitzvahs, outreach. Most chassidim fall in this group.

2. Our avoida is to get the whole world to know that the Rebbe is moshiach, but it has to be b'oifan hamiskabel, and only if the receiver is a keili to it.

3. If u don't wear a yechi yarmulka and pin you're not a chossid and we have to proclaim it wherever and whenever we can

4. There's nobody at the ohel except the FR, the Rebbe is alive and well and we are stopping his revelation by not saying yechi 1,000 times a day.

RM was mostly in group 2. I think braun is also in #2. The meshugoyim in 770 are in #3 or #4 with the hardcore in #4 making the most noise.

This is a b'kitzur breakdown, and there's plenty of arichus to write about this, but I gotta go make some $$ today.

One last nekudah: Like everything else, nobody is pure. We have political agendas all over the place, and people say things that they don't believe for a NY minute to advance themselves. For example, RK in cincinatti believes in yechi like I believe in the tooth fairy. But he's at every asifa since he had a fallout with the HQ people & the yechi crowd gives him a platform to sit on.

Why are the meshichestin and non-meshichisten fighting? The differences are just nuances. Every Lubavitcher believes that the Rebbe is Moshiach (except perhaps for Rabbi Heller, if there is someone else, I would like to know).

Is the question of whether to keep it secret or proclaim it to the world worth fighting over?

The only sane????? conclusion one can come to after this entire "intelligent" discussion that is mevaze the name of the Rebbe with inane ploidering, specifically those who feel that they have the "wisdom" and are "empowered" to decide who is or who is not Moshiach,is that your'e all nuts.

Sam, halvai I had the zitsfleish to learn a maamor like i have for shtusim like the internet. We probably believe the same thing, but bottom line, if u don't believe that the Rebbe is coming back as moshiach in some form, then it's over. We can recast chabad as ncsy with beards, but as a chassidus it is over. Look in Tanya perek 42 "ainai haeida", perek 2 "tzaddikim vchachomim...", perek 1 "omad vshoslon...".
This is before we look at L"S V26 shmois, and many other places.

My point is that we have to believe that the Rebbe is coming to lead us from golus. Is he Moshiach now? No, bec Hashem will reveal to moshiach his mission when it is time for it, not before, as the Rebbe told LG once. Is he chezkas? Not sure, depending if chezkas can be said after histalkus. Our main avoida today is haftozas ha'maayonos, in our own hearts and families and to the world at large. Flags and statements are a distraction and stop people from learning chassidus, that's why I hate them.
I've got more to write on this, but I need some sleep tonight.

"Not sure, depending if chezkas can be said after histalkus"
To say cheskas moshiach on a halachic dead person(not Midrashic or Rashi al hatorah regarding yakov ovini)is the same Kefira as the Rebbe said regarding the Aschalta Degeula movement.It is Megaleh Ponim Betorah Sheloi Kehalocha.

Ad Mosai, (and all meshichisten),

U didn't understand my post. I don't understand and I'm not a maiven in chezkas vs. vadai, but I'm clear on what our mission is today. Therefore this entire argument is a distraction from our avoida of hafotzas ha'maayonos. The tanya and sichos make the question and are not the answer. In V26 shmois the Rebbe says that the nossi has to be someone u can see with gashmius'dike eyes. No one has ever given a straight answer where this is now. So we have 2 options.
1. the nutcases answer, "open your eyes (& smoke some dope) and you'll see it"
2. we don't know the answer but we know what our avoida is, and just like we can't answer the holocaust, Jewish suffering, kids dying R"L, we can't answer this and Moshiach will answer it.

I prefer #2, and don't call me a meshichist, the meshichisten in our town can't stand me and you're offending them.

Please clarrify why Chabad always claimed that Breslov was not a legitimate derech in avoidas hashem because they had no Rebbe.

Growing up in Chabad they were mocked as the 'Toiter Chassidim' with no Rebbe to guide them in the nisyoinois of the present day, because he was no longer in this world.

Contrast this with bochrim and yungerleit who never saw the Rebbe or heard a sicha live or were in Crown Heights in the good old days...

Re:Grainom 7:19
Along with the great BT Revolution that overtook Lubavitch in the last 40 years came an influx of eirev rav culture and ideas that are completely foreign to Lubavitch and Judaism in general.These ideas include many concepts from eastern religions and from American hippie culture. Lubavitch doesn't need a third dayan; it needs a second Ezra Hasofer to figure out what to do with the erev rav and their ideas which have infiltrated Lubavitch in a big way. Very sad.

Thnx for the link about yoga. It really is a mitzva lefarsem this article. I knew Gutman Locks when he lived in CA, drove a hippie VW van, and he still is a bissel meshuga (like all us californians).

Various admorim and Torah giants were known for asking morei horaah, halachic adjudicators, to pasken that Moshiach should come. These rabbonim would say that a morah horaah, a posek, is given certain powers to issue a halachic ruling that can impact the metzius, the reality, of the world.It was with this in mind that Rav Menashe Klein, noted posek and author of the Mishneh Halachos, who currently resides in Eretz Yisroel, posed a request to the posek hador at his home in Meah Shearim.Rav Klein, during a recent visit to Maran Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, asked the centenarian gadol to pasken that Moshiach should come. Rav Elyashiv politely refused, stating, “We cannot pasken [that the geulah should come], but rather, we should believe in and anticipate [the coming of the geulah].”

we had a rebbe whom, with some major issues at least, only the bt's perhaps got?

one more point: ir megt zich alle shemen. this gil locks, according to some estimates, put on tefilin with THOUSANDS over the years at the kosel. while you were all fressing on 13th avenue. farmers.

gil told me that the rebbe sent lchaim with bochurim on their way to melbourne for the person who runs the tefilin stand at the kosel. gil received the mashke after shkieh on shabbos and walked home with it through the arab quarter and was attacked by arabs, who turned to beat gil after knocking down his friend. gil flung the mashke at the oncoming arab's face and they all ran away. gil reported back to the rebbe at dollars the mashke saved him....
