Hirshel: surely you read about Reb Yoel Kahan's visit to the Belzer Rebbe. And after the visit you must've been surprised to see - and even more so, to hear - that Reb Pinches Friedeman attended a farbrengen with Reb Yoel and spoke (in his Rebbe's name?) about Chabad and Tanya. Anybody who knows anything about Belz knows this are truly groundbreaking events. Belz speaking in praise of the Chabad Derech?! Belz was about Tor/Beis Yosef, not learning Chassidus. Anyway, what got me was how come R' Pinchas the chusid knows very well why Yud Tes Kislev is celebrated vs. all others arrests of other Rebbes like the Holy Ruzhiner, and his Rebbe plays dumb and asks Reb Yoel the difference? can a chusid know better then his Rebbe... the Ruzhiner was very holy,, but the question is shocking for a chuchem like the Belzer. As if he's asking why celebrate Yud Beis Tammuz and not celebrate Spinker Rebbe of BP's release????
