How stupid people are!

You are saying they shouldn’t have put in goyishe music, when you watch goyishe movies?! Shut your mouth, you have no right to say that.

You are right they shouldnt have put that music in, but YOU have no right to say that!

It took my breath away to see live footage of the Rebbetztn .Could you imagine being at the Ohel with both th Rebbe AND his mother – Royalty personified . Thank you for the love and inspiration .

Great work, JEM!

We always appreciated and still appreciate the Rebbe perfectly well, we continue to follow his hora’os and learn his Torah as best we can, we are greatly inspired by this video, and we can’t wait for the Geula!

One does not have to be an Einstein to recognize that this music was not taken from the nigunim that the Rebbe taught, nor from the many Nichoach tapes available. Whether it’s from a Walt Disney film, Paramount pictures, or Yanni, it’s definitely not from any Jewish source. Yes, the Rebbe was maleh a number of non-Jewish tunes, then again he is a Rebbe! Hopefully, going forward JEM will stick to nigunim within the daled amos of Chabad.

The video is beautiful. As a bal teshuva I can say that the music definitely sounds like it comes from a walt disney movie, but incredible stuff none the less. Keep up the great work.

pleeeeeez kinderlach.. stop fighting. I recall quite vividly when the Rebbe taught shamils niggen and that was from a goy..He elevated the niggen.. the niggen had a message and it was a proper message. so let’s not get bent out of shape and look at the good part of this presentation- consider that we are fortunate to have this. Since I already opened my big “mouth” I think it would nice if everyone remembers who it was that thought to record everything.. R. C.B. Halberstam really should be appreciated for his incredible foresight.. Let’s try and keep this positive –… Read more »

Beautiful and Inspiring Watch!

Let’s concentrate on the Beauty and the Holiness of our Dear Rebbe! Let’s appreciate the many Glorious moments we had and I”YH will have, once again, really really Soon, with the coming of Moshiach immediately Now!

Noach Heber!!!!!!!!!!!
You look good! 🙂

I love you!

I love reading the stupid comments about classical music being termed “goyish” in the society we live today, it makes me laugh how ignorant some of you really are.

May 14, 2012 4:42 pm

moshiach now with our rebbe at the lead!!!!!

6 is right
May 14, 2012 4:37 pm

how in the world would u know if its not jewish? or maybe your just making that up

May 14, 2012 3:58 pm

Give them the benefit of the doubt perhaps avremy Get wrote some new music that gives you the wrong vibes but it’s not what you are saying it is..

May 14, 2012 3:40 pm

vos mient oscars? All I know is that during sifiras haomer everyone is discussing weather or not the music they just listened to is goyish

May 14, 2012 3:04 pm

This is a beautiful video, and it hurts me to see that the first response so many people have is to criticize the music. When will we get sick of filling this website with negativity after every article? Honestly, the JEM team could have set this film to gangsta rap and I still wouldn’t have been half as disturbed as I am after reading how so many nitpicking armchair critics ignore every beautiful moment we just watched to bicker about the soundtrack.

May 14, 2012 3:03 pm

No 6, are talking foolishly! To the rest of you, this is definitely goyishe music which should NOT have been put to this video of the Rebbe! a chassidishe nigun would have been more in order!

May 14, 2012 2:21 pm

🙁 🙁 🙁
how can you put this music on a rebbe video???

to #6 you dont need to watch movies to be able to tell that the music (while nice) is not jewish music…

it is sad because there is really no need. with the smallest effort they could have produced beautiful jewish music with the same affect.

May 14, 2012 1:36 pm

the music is a bit hmm ‘not so fit’ for a Rebbe video

That’s such an obsurd comment!

yes this is amaizing, unreal but we have nigunim that can accomplish more
May 14, 2012 1:12 pm

we have nigunim that can accomplish more
perhaps this discussion will bring about jem .. music singing with the rebbe wow how powerful that would be
let us all stay positive jem does wonders and we are sooo proud and thank-full for and i am sure the rebbe has much nachas too

Beautiful video…some footage to dark…hard to see.

Great Video
May 14, 2012 11:56 am

To 1&2 there’s nothing Goyish about this music, the fact that it was (if) used in a none Jewish production means nothing.

This is a mistake, the screenshot is of the Rebbe walking on Eastern Parkway, its the alleyway between what is now Chitrik’s house & Drizin’s house which has been rebuilt and changed.

How would you know do you watch Goiyeshe movies??!! If yes than who are you to comment what JEM can put with there videos?

May 14, 2012 9:47 am

beautiful video, watching with tears..

May 14, 2012 9:40 am

Just brings home how much we miss him and didn’t really appreciate him enough while he was here !

so emotional!
May 14, 2012 7:26 am

it brought back such amazing times from my youth growing up in C.H.. missing the Rebba !

the music?
May 14, 2012 6:14 am

If I’m not mistaken that is clearly music from a goyishe movie, I don’t think that should go together with a rebbe video,
I expect better from JEM,
the staff should be keeping to only jewish music, and not this goyish mishigas
(this is not the first time they do this, and I sure hope it’s the last)
