    Aish In Tribute to Chabad

    Rabbi Dr. Daniel P. Aldrich, Political Science, Purdue University, writes about Mumbai Shluchim in a feature article on aish.com: "Long before I stepped onto the airplane (to India), I knew I'd be in good hands -- friends contacted the Holtzbergs to ensure that I would have a place to connect with other Jews, pray, and have a warm, home-cooked meal."

    really impressive that aish wrote something so nice about chabad well i guess its hard to deny when you’ve personally benefitted from it….really poorly written though

    To #1:
    In merit of the Holtzbergs, maybe you can take on not to judge and criticize others. The Aibeshter does enough judging for all of us, and rampant Ahavas Yisrael will do you and everyone you encounter a lot more good than criticism will.

    ANYONE WHOEVER MET THE REBBE WOULD COMMENT ON HIS EYES. HOW THEY SEEMED TO LOOK RIGHT THROUGH YOU. THAT WAS BASICALLY TRUE, ALL THE REBBE SAW WAS THE YIDDISHE NESHAMA, HE DID NOT SEE ANY TITLES OR LABELS. IF ONE WAS WEARING A LABEL THAT SAID AISH OR WHAT HAVE YOU, TO THE REBBE IT WAS THE SAME AS ONE OF HIS VERY OWN CHASIDIM. IF HE IS OUR REBBE THEN WE HAVE TO EMULATE HIM BY FOLLOWING HIS WAYS. THAT MEANS THAT IF AISH HAD THE SENSITIVITY TO WRITE WHAT THEY DID ACKNOWLEDGE THE KIND WORDS AND LEAVE WELL… Read more »

    THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL article. We are Chabad shluchim in Germany. We aplaud this article and this show of Jewish brotherly love and Achdus. WE ARE ALL BROTHERS and SISTERS. Its over. We are all on one team. We are all G-d’s equal children. We each have our own expression of service to hashem. Let’s respect, love and selflessly care for each other.
    This is how we defeat evil.
    This is how we bring goodness.
    This is how the Geula will come.

    Daniel Aldrich came to our Chabad House a number of times. He became frum through Aish and carried their torch, but was always genuinely grateful for the Shluchim and Chabad Houses from which he benefitted. It is unkind to accuse and label people that are different than you are. Not in the spirit of Rebbe.

    Now is a time to try and bridge gaps bein Yisroel L’Yisroel. Yidden were killed hy”d. Let’s use their memory to help bring yidden together. Terrorisim and evil is not mavchin between one Jew and another, why shohld we? We are all in this together=bachdus. Let’s not give essov another victory!

    I was moved to tears by this article. In tragedy, we are truly unified and our differences fade away… may this have a lasting affect on everyone. Many people in out-of-town communities benefit from both Chabad and Aish, and to see this article on Aish will help heal many of the rifts that exist, whether they are there because of their criticism of Chabad, or our crtiticism of their methods. This should be the first step towards true Ahavas Yisroel and the coming of Moshiach.

    Many years ago, I was mekarev someone who later went to Aish in Yerushlayim and then became (and still is) a hot shot in the Aish organization. (He also went to the Rebbe for dollars and proudly keeps that dollar.) More recently, I met a young Jewish student who had become frum through Aish. I learnt with him etc. and he later became a Chosid. Today he and his wife are Chabad House directors. There is nothing good to come out of mistrust of fellow frumer yidden. Thank you to COL for sharing the Aish article with us! (By the… Read more »

    At a time like this! What we need now is unity among ALL jews, not just those who are like you. This is what will bring moshiach, and will wipe all tears from every face!

    One, has but to contemplate, who was murdered Al Kiddush Hashem at the Chabad House….Chabad Chasidim, Satmar Chasidim, just an ordinary Israeli Jewish woman….to be jolted into reality. The ruthless cold blooded killers made no distinction between the captives. They cared not if they were Chabad, Aish, Satmar, Israeli Jew, American Jew, religious or not. All they were thirsty for was the blood of Jews…ANY JEWS! Many of us have finally realized the raw, brutal truth….WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER. If we are to have a chance to distroy these animals, we must work together, live together, love one another… Read more »

    I was first picked up at Aish Old City, I was later picked up by Chabad and met my wife in a Chabad Succah. I needed both. If we do not Love and respect each other then we missed the point completely. I cried and prayed for days over Holtzberg like he is my brother; we never met . I will always love Holtzberg and what Chabad and Aish stand for.

    To #1 and #4 – now is the time to finally put aside your (mistaken, I’m sure) hard feelings towards another Jew. We must grab this opportunity, time to clinch the deal – bring Moshiach now. We thirst for the Geula, we need Moshiach, for the world to survive. Nothing less will do: Not for our security, for our lives, for our economy. We MUST have Moshiach now. And we all can do it. Let’s continue being united, as we all were as we prayed, said Tehillim, for ALL the hostages in Chabad and the hotels, in Mumbai everywhere, and… Read more »

    The Aish site has over 180 comments on the original article each one better than the next in their praise for Gabi and Rivki Hy”d and Chabad in general. Why must it davka be a Chabd site that introduces negative comments into what is otherwise an amazing display of achdus? The moderator of this site should removecomments #1 and #4 immediately… and help maintain the Ahavas Yisroel that this tragedy has engendered for as long as possible…
