I don’t believe I am exaggerating by saying that Rubashkin’s freedom on zos chunkah last year was nothing short of the most incredible nes all of klal yisroel has witnessed since the actual miracle of channukah. I propose, and ask that all collive readers stand with me on demanding that batei din in every city establish a minor holiday of sorts to coincide with zos Chanukah that each and every year we mark this event with similar celebrations and farbrengans. This should have no less attention than yud tes kislev (an important yid was freed from prison), yud shevat (it… Read more »

You seem to have some facts confused (unless you were just being sarcastic?) *Yud tes kislev – Chabad chassidus was at stake, and the Alter Rebbe is not in the geder of just an ‘important yid’. No comparison *Yud shvat – I’m sure you weren’t thinking to compare the Rebbe to- lehavdil elef alfei havdalos? *Hey Teives – it’s about Hu bachaim, and also was a gzeirah against Chabad chassidus; not just about winning a court case Please do not confuse and compare That being said, B”H we are so happy the Rebbe’s Brochos came through and R Sholom Mordechai… Read more »

I am very happy that he was released, but seriously you are lacking some perspectives of Jewish history

The Purim ness happened entirely through Achashverosh, and yet we honor Charvona but not him.

One day you will understand the importance of the miracle. To be clear, no DT is not being compared to Rebbe MHM, G-d forbid! But we can make the link between one leader rising to greater heights. One was tumah and the other kadosh but still the relationship is there. yud tes kislev is everything. so is here. hei teves was lemalah min atzmius but clothed in a court case. So too shalom mordechai’s yeshua was clothed in the trappings of the American legal system.
The connections are plain. Wipe away the dust and see!

And, to use a word that you employed- you are “lacking” something else. Or do you live in a world where you need to judge every overwhelming expression of joy by pretending to take every word literally? How sad for you. This is not a historical record keeping association and I fully sympathize with the expressions used by comment #6 and, unlike you, I know what he/she means.
