Just for a day I wish I was Lipa


ליפא שמלצר from bhol on Vimeo.

No, not because he gets to be himself all the time. Not because he gets to wear a rainbow tallis, I have no such תאוה, believe me. For me a snow-white Chabad tallis with wide black stripes is much more of a תאוה, and I can wear it without looking like a fool too! But because he gets to hop a plane, literally, and go back to the alter heim to see where his ancestors lived and breathed.

Maybe one day...

Biala Rebbe #83 just went to poland with his chasidim for 2500 bucks a pop. To Nevel would surely cost more but magyarland isn't too far, once your there...

snagville said...

To you have a Taveh to be Oiver on Loeg Lerush too or is that just a side benefit?

Hirshel Tzig - הירשל ציג said...

no such tayveh, snagville

Nobody else has a taiva to show off that they are nebach an ama'uretz midioiraysa midirabunon like lipa.

Why hasn't anyone questioned why Lipa is wearing Tefillin in a cemetery? According to the following link it is assur:

I love his tallis. I hear that there is a matching pair of colorful tefillin and eyeglasses in the works. And rabeinu taams...

Matching rabeinu taam are already made by fruit of the loom

I'd like to see all of you being MeHaneh a Yid and making him feel good, the way Lipa does.

Since you aren't constitutionally capable of Mekhazek Yidden, your talents emerge elsewhere.

As we used to say in Haight-Ashbury in the 60s, "If you ain't part of the solution, you're part of the problem".

There are people who do not tuck their tzitzis in (let alone a tallis) is Beis haCHayim?

zingur said...

like lipa's father said "i am not going back there" i don't wanna go back to that place where they killed my family

there is nothing wrong to ware a talis with colors the kohen gadol had full of colors on his begudim

pitputim said...

I went back to Poland with my father הכ’’מ and found them groise anti-semiten. They Beis HaChaim had been destroyed by THEM, not the Nazis.

There was mamash only one good thing about what we did: Hakoras HaTov. We visited the (now) old lady, who is listed in Yad Washem as from the Chassidei Umos HaOlam.

As Cohanim, we couldn't even go into the famous cemetries because the trees were all over hung.

And yes, Lipa should not have been wearing Tefillin

ex-hasid said...

I heard he put the colored talis on specially for the occasion so when one day his son will be old enough to realize that gantz klal yisroel thinks his father is the biggest fool since the goilam of Prague, and we never laughed with his but rather at him, the face of the poor kid will turn the same colors as that holy talis in the holy snowy cemetery in the holy photo-op.
BTW can someone confirm if lipa is taking over R'Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's shul and following.

moshe moshel said...

Should that r"l turn out to be true the tragedy will only be compounded further and further. Will sholi be roshakul?

berry said...

not sure if shouli and lipa are still part of the same religious belief.

ex hasid said...

Just to short fuse the statement about lipa taking over R' Zalman Schachter-Shalomi from becoming a bona fide rumor. The comment was a JOKE. v'hamavin Yavin.
It would be a great embarrassment to Zalman if a kook like Lipa would take him over.

Reb Tzig, I don't know who you endure as a blogger with such a group of cold-hearted, unkind, commenters for a chevreh... Nu nu.

Maybe he was wearing his Litvishe Chol HaMoed Tefillin with no parshiyos inside.
