Thank you

For posting this Hakaras Hatov. People are very quick to write op eds and stuff when they need to vent and complain, it is refreshing to see a plain and simple thank you!

…of the weiss’s. Seriously though, Mendy and Tzippy Weiss are without question the most amazing people on the planet. Their incrediblism is only surpassed by their awesomeness. I wish i could’ve been in crown heights just so i may bask in their majesty.

yes . KAN TZIVAH HASHEM ES HABROCHO

let me tell you,
for every one AHAVAS YISROEL act that is published and appreciated,

ther are at least 50 more acts
of genuine AHAVAS YISROEL
being done,
without anybody ever publishing it.
i wittiness it over and over again and again.
yes the the shchuna of the rebbe could definitely be very proud with the goodness and kindness that is constantly taking place in a very discrete way.

Go weiss's!

attention collive: can there be a “random act of kindness ssection starting for the new year?just a small box where ppl can write a nice thing someone did for them, we need more stories like this and i am sure they acure often and go unnoticed!(sort of like “i was touched ” in neshei chabad

thank you for posting.
Guest
thank you for posting.

its nice to see something positive being written about on collive. there’s so much much focus on the minority: all the constant infighting etc. and for some reason that usually gets the spotlight on col, and sadly that’s the picture that is painted for shluchim worldwide. thank you for showing what the real majority of c.h. is truly about.

Once where on the ahavas yisroel topic I would like to share a small story that happened to me. I was at kahans before yom kippur buying some food. when it came time to pay I noticed I was a dollar short, I was about to leave the store without buying the item that was a dollar over when the lady standing next to me offered to pay for it. She told me that someone once helped her when she was a buck short and she wanted to pass along the favor. I was very touched.

I was thinking the same thing – that this is the kind of thing that would go in the “I was touched” in the nshei.
really beautiful!

Perhaps only in Crown Heights can one get a “a unique – perhaps typical – response.”

With the amount of residents in CH there should be 1000 more not 50
But as many as it is kein yirbu
Kol hakavod to the hosts and I thin that for the upcoming kinus hashluchim and later in shvat for shluchos there should be a way that if you can host you should let THEM know, I know many that don’t come because they don’t have where to stay.

Thanks COL

Thanks COL

For the positivity. Fortunately with close to 3,000 residents in the community there are many great deeds done on a regular basis that go unnoticed. Unfortunately many news agency focus on the few negative. Please keep posting the more positive ones.
Thanks
