sad to say but 770 today is not a place that can represent Judaism, Lubavitch or the Rebbe in a positive light….

unfortunately, i would NOT recommend a tour of 770.
And in crown heights, you don’t exactly see elokus rolling down the streets.

Buddaism is a mixed bag, like the religion of Edom. Some worship idols, but in principle, it is almost more of a philosophy of how and why to escape from the world, than it is a religion. In any case, Chazal also talked to idolators to explain Judaism.

Have you experienced a MOTZEI yomtov expression in 770 lately?!

Have you experienced a MOTZEI yomtov expression in 770 lately?!

To the debtractors of 770 – why don’t you take your ignorant and negative selves and go to 770 between mincha and maariv EVERY motzei yomtov – Rosh Hashana, Simchas Torah, Pesachj, Shavuous etc. – and see a farbrengen WITH the Rebbe – but unfortunately you don’t SEE the Rebbe! You just FEEL the Rebbe. You don’t have a clue what’s going on there – it’s an opportunity to “BE with” the REbbe. It’s truly above “teva” to be by these farbrengens. But, to borrow a secular expression – “You can take a horse to the water, but you cannot… Read more »

Buddhism and Judaism: "Tolerance, self-understanding, and non-violence."

Buddhism and Judaism: "Tolerance, self-understanding, and non-violence."

Nope, Judaism does not preach that.

For sure not “non-violence,” that is Ganhdi, we teach that if someone comes to kill you, you kill him first. And the Rebbe in the 1960’s spoke about not taking terrorists prisoner, lest that give the arabs ideas of prisoner exchanges, v’dal

Batya where are you? I expect to see you in anything that shows Lubavitch in a positive light.

#2, Buddhists are not muslim or arab, they don’t even look it. They look almost Indian if anything. #1, They are ovdei avodah zarah, but so what? They can’t visit the museum? (#7) As far as 770, the question is, is it appropriate for the kedusha of 770 to bring a bunch of Buddhist monks in full regalia in there? (#6) And what are people kvetching about bringing them to Crown Heights? They were in Crown Heights! Last I checked, that’s where the JCM is! I think it’s a great and informative way to expose them to yiddishkeit. Do you… Read more »

to all u cultural amoratzim, bhhuddism isn’t a religion (even though ppl do worship buhddah, that is not bhudism)

bhuddism is a philosophy. it does not even talk about Hashem. it mostly talks about the teachings of mr. bhuddah whom his followers consider an enlightened teacher.

but buddah never called himself a prophet or a god.
bhuddists mostly teach about relating to this world- how to relate to one’s thoughts& 2 the world.
