    so he thought and he coughed and he thought and he thought… and explains – they were honored by that gd orchestrated their murder, and skirted the question about shluchei mitzva, by saying good came of it, and pain is not promised not to come of it. But the phrase/promise is “they will not be harmed” “there is protection from pointless murder” and since hashem orchestrates it, it’s not pointless. uhm, so there never is pointless murder (since hashem orchestrates all).fot that matter he could ahve said, they weren’t damaged – damage is when bad comes, and bad doens’t come… Read more »

    it seems you don’t need Manis Friedman. you need basic Judaism and chassidus. Go learn Tanya Ch. 26 and stop being so cynical and bitter.

    Thank you Hashem for Rabbi Mannis

    thank you Rabbi mannis for healing my pain. the wound of the murder is still so painful- and i feel so left in the dark. Yet your words are healing comforting and lift my spirits- with a beutiful messege of “Emunah and betachon- ” You are exactly what we need to hear now- Thank you for posting this and sending it to my email.

    labelling someone with valid reactions and unanswerable questions as bitter and cynical doesn’t make the feeble answers any stronger

    me again. my response was to the writer’s tone, not his or her doubts/pain/etc… The unanswerable questions are a matter of bitachon. For that you have Tanya. But the chutzpa towards someone who is respected by many and the “amaleik”-style cynicism is just ugly. P.S. its funny that #1 says “some people can not say “I don’t know””, i wsa at a talk by R. manis in chicago recently where most of his talk was about how important it is to say “i don’t know”… Obviously, #1 knows very little about him.

    I’m sorry I found this to be way over many of our simple heads. I ‘m a simple Jew… but obviously there is no simple answer to this tragedy. The one point I got from Rabbi Friedman was the fact that the world did change because of these people. Bottom line this is painful bottom line No more philosophical explanations….we need Moshiach.
