    the true miracle and test will be when its all over and they listen to what the bes din says!! for some reason it sounds like other din torahs in the past where whoever lost had some excuse why they dont need to listen and then we are back at square 1

    Badatz Come to Agreement to put on Teffilin

    I don’t understand what you guys are so gaga over? These “RABBIS” made an “AGREEMENT” to go to a DIN TORAH?! … Isn’t that what EVERY JEW should do when they have a “disagreement?! So what’s the big deal that RABBIS “AGREED” to go to THE “justice system” THEY are a part of?! Its like a headline: Rabbi agrees to put on Teffilin/keep shabbos/ not steel/ not take shochad/ recues himself from a din torah he is nogea b’dovor. … v’dal

    It’s interesting to see that the only thing they can agree on is on how they will battle.
    But it’s a good first step, but just that.

    Too little too late.

    Too little too late.

    They’ve already lost all their respect from the community, in that respect they will gain nothing.
    Let’s hope that they will resolve their issues and start the long process of regaining their respect, because as of now they’ve made Rabonim look like a bunch of lunatics.

    I don’t understand why you don’t understand how difficult it is to make Shalom. Perhaps if you were in their shoes you would’nt crticize. Be more optimistic.

    While the new Vaad Hakohol is excited, they and all of us must be aware that part of the issues to be settled at the Din Torah:
    The Vaad Hakohol elections.
    The elections for the Gabboi’m.
    The organization of the Netzigim.
    Elections committee.
    The decision makers in election controversies.
    Credentials of candidates for Vaad Hakohol.

    it did NOT say they made sholom, it said they agreed to go to a din Torah … i don’t think that is news worthy about “RABBIS”

    What Leadership!!

    I can’t believe it – The Senior “Rabbis” of CH – have agreed to have other Rabbis argue over who is right and can control other people lives. – lovely – just lovely.. What childish behaviors. How the heck do you expect anyone to seriously consider this community and its leaders as real, when they can’t even agree to disagree? CH is an unsafe, political, corrupt, mafia run neighborhood. And the Shlita at the end of the document – proves it. Now let me see if you have the guts to print this post as well… or are you going… Read more »

    all the issues you are mentioning are not part of the Rabbies dues. They are strictly kehila matters. In case of a dispute or doubt that has halochical implications, ‘both’ parties should go to neutral Rabbonim in case the Rabbonei Hashchune have any kind of interest in the issues at stake. You do not need a DT for that. Its very simple.

    Just a PR Move by the New Vaad

    The new vaad just wants to score some points but everyone who said that nothing will come out of this is right. When Moshe Rubashkin took office, the first thing he did was he twisted the arms of the Rabbonim to force them to make a photo-op of so called sholom Handshake between Rabbi Schwei and Rabbi Osdoba. All the web sites displayed this photo as “big deal” finally Moshe Rubashkin made Sholom at last between the Rasbbonim. The Newly elected and disputed Vaad hakohol also needs to score such points – regardless if it is reality or fantasy –… Read more »

    To all the negative people. I hope you all get a life…. Judaism is about positive optimism. Like we beleive that Moshiach is coming today. Tracht Gut Vet Zein Gut. Kol Man D’Ovad Rachamono L’tav Hu. Gam Zu L’Toivo. etc.

    "signed"??? - so what?
    Guest
    "signed"??? - so what?

    Just because it was “signed” means nothing.

    We have had cases in CH where a Rav signed his name and then dishonored his own signature 2 hours a later and we have had 2 cases where a Rav of CH agreed to a Din Torah, then lost and did not comply with the Psak Din.

    You can enjoy your “pie in the sky” but just be aware, that this is not reality.

    Mah Sheloy Yaaseh Hasechel Yaaseh Hazman.

    Eventually we will all figure it out (the hard way) see that it was (to begin with) a big pie in the sky.

    In the meantime you can be like the ostridge who sticks his head in the sand to avoid reality and like the ostridge we can all play “make belive” that “it’s good”.

    Fantastic news!

    While it is great that everything is going to be settled how is it that the ” Vaad Hakhal is taking credit for something they had nothing to do with.They have been too busy suing everyone in court.The real credit Goes to Rabbi Mendel Gluckowsky for his tireless efforts to bring this together & to both Rabbonim for wholeheartedly agreeing to this in writing.Within a few months We will have a unified& strong Bais din & we will be able to strengthen & unite all of Chabad etc.

    WHAT HAPPENED TO "TRACHT GUT VET ZEIN GUT"???

    WHAT HAPPENED TO "TRACHT GUT VET ZEIN GUT"???

    THE REBBE STATED THAT IF WE “THINK GOOD”….
    IT WILL “BE GOOD”.

    THAT IS THE RESULT WILL BE “TOV HA NIRAH V’HA NIGLEH.

    WE SHOULD BE POSITIVE ABOUT THIS AGREEMENT AND CONFIDENT THAT IT WILL BRING SHOLOM.

    THEN AS THE REBBE ASSURES, THE RESULTS WILL BE “GOOD”

    THE PRESSURE WORKED WONDERS

    THE LETTER FROM THE NEW VAAD IS POOR SPIN AND DISHONESTY.

    RAV OSDOBA FORCED THE ISSUE TO THE TABLE BECAUSE HE PUBLISHED HIS OWN SIGNED COMMITTMENT TO AGREE TO A ZABLO.

    WITH THE TRUTH OUR HIDING WAS IMPOSSIBLE..

    NOW THE NEW VAAD COMES MERRILY ALONG AND TAKES DISHONEST CREDIT FOR THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT– WHICH IS 100% TO RAV OSDOBA’S CREDIT.

    LET’S SAY IT LIKE IT IS!!!!

    of course no one has the magic wand to miraculously fix everything in one moment. there are complicated matters at hand – probably much more then most of us know about. the mere agreement to sit down together – with the assistance of a neutral group of Rabbonim (Zabl”o) – and make a sincere effort to work out the problems. unfortunately, some people see negativity in everything. Lets look at the POSITIVE and hope and pray (if you have some influence – also encourage (by telling them that you and your family (friends) are very encouraged and hopeful to see… Read more »
