Yohrtzeit - Reb Mottel Bryski (Chmielniker)

Yesterday, 14 Teves, was the first Yohrtzeit of Reb מרדכי מאיר (Mottel) Bryski, o"h, of Crown Heights. Since I am not of Russian extraction, as most of you know by now, I tend to like and "koch zich" in the outer trappings of people, often giving it way too much credence. His family took this opportunity to write a Sefer Torah in his honor and לעלוי נשמתו and will be מכניס it into the Chabad Center in Agoura Hills, CA, where his son Reb Moshe, is the shliach. The websites also took the opportunity to publish pictures of the niftar and his family, starting from when Reb Mottel was a bochur-tomim in Poland till very recently. His picture as a bochur is what caught my eye - which is why I share this with you today.

An article written at the shloshim last year.

A real Tomim it seems, he is still wearing pios, he didn't belive in neshtani huitim.

Any revelations on Gluttony*

כי ירחיב ה' אלקיך את גבולך - הורה שאין האדם הומה אחר התאוות כי אם מתוך הרחבה יתירה!, ואין ארי נוהם כי אם מתוך קופה של בשר!, לכך אמר כי ירחיב ה' את גבולך, וזה יביאך לידי הסרת מסוה הבושה מעל פניך!!!, עד שתאמר בפה מלא אוכלה בשר. ודומה זה קצת לפריקת עול מלכות שמים. --- על כן כל היום תתאוה תאוה גם בוש לא תבוש מלומר אוכלה בשר!... -כלי יקר דברים

תיקון תאות אכילה קודמת אל האדם, שהיא הקלה גם כן קצת אצלו!, וממנה יימשך אל תיקון תאוה השניה.. ולכך הקדימו חז"ל מסכת נזיר למסכת סוטה
ואם לא תיקון תאוה זו אז לא התחיל לתקן השניה! - מסתמא שאינו נוגע אצלו עוד-. -פרי צדיק

*Gluttony, meaning to gulp down or swallow, over-indulgence and over-consumption of food

This is what Chabad has become.

I see someone posted a link to the outrageous going ons every sunday and basically every day.This is off topic but this is a basic forum where sometimes such issues are discussed:
This is the result of decades of irresponsible, indiscriminate shlichus. When someone shows up at your door, you throw it open wide and assimilate him or her as quickly as possible. There is no intake process, no psychological evaluation. You've all been brought up to believe that Chabad is the only legitimate form of Judaism remaining, so it would never occur to you to evaluate a young person to determine whether or not he/she is suited to the lifestyle. I've never heard of a shliach who tells a young person, “This may not be the best fit for you.” I don't believe such a shliach exists.

Chabad, like all proselytizing religions, attracts a lot of fringe personalities. The end result is that you now have an entire generation of Chabad BT's who are profoundly mentally ill. They will be your destruction - and you did it to yourselves.

so what did the Real Lubavichers tell you? they were definitely scared stiff from your finger pointing.

I see that Rav Briski was from a Trisker chasidim family?
Did he know Reb Yossel Wienberg from those years who was also a Trisker chosid before he came to chabad

Bentzion is a troll. He is an unhappy, wretched excuse for a man whose nephew is a very well-adjusted Lubavitcher (from a Modern Orthodox background). He cannot stand to see how well his nephew, who recently married the daughter of a shaliach, is doing in Chabad and how happy he is. He is one of Failed Scotty's boys - there he is known as Jeff.

He posted his drivel on CHInfo under some other name.

As for this nonsense in 770, it's a sideshow and has little bearing on mainstream Chabad outside of Crown Heights (which indeed is declining).

Wishful thinking.

As to Jeff from Failed he is indeed a wretched soul.Unfortunately he is on the money many times

By the way, one of the dollar hooligans is a descendant of the Alter Rebbe and of Rebbetzin Menucha Rochel. Another is from a very well-respected Kfar Chabad family.
