Rushishonoh's In the House
Who says being frum and wearing a white shirt can't be fun?!
I've sort of become immune to displays such as these. A few years ago I'd be upset at such videos, no matter whom it came from. Chabad especially. But now, after years of being exposed to this on Chabad and other "KIRUV" sites, I'm not upset anymore. I guess that's what you call being "desensitized." I'm not in the "kiruv" or "shlichus" business, so I don't know what it's like out there. People that ARE in the biz say that you need to be 'hip" and "cutting edge" to get people, especially young people, involved with Yiddishkeit, otherwise you can talk to the wall. It's also very easy to sit in Monsey or Brooklyn and criticize those that "do," so I guess I should hold my tongue. Maybe I'll join some kind of dance class and learn to make my "thing" like they do. I sure could stand to lose the weight, and maybe my kids will think me "cool."
