Why Chabad Lubavitch?

If i am not mistaken, this should not be b’shem Lubavitch!
Those signs “A project of Chabad Lubavitch don’t belong.

Chabad in Israel needs to protest more

Chabad in Israel needs to protest more

Chabad in Israel needs to approach Netanyahu and tell him that they will see that he and his party will be defeated if he has “peace” talks with America or Arabs.

Rabbi Schneerson of blessed memory (a Rabbi of some influence in Chabad)did not approve of going to demonstrations .It puts Chabads primary goal of outreach at risk .And turns left leaning Jews away from Chabad

#7 since when did eretz yisroel and safety of jewish blood and flesh become a fundraising liability

shame on your opinion and your brain! eretz yisroel is not politics its a integral part of the jewish torah message and a conduction or a obstruction of jewish continuity spiritually and militarily if you want money become a lawyer if you want fans open up a chabad news website or become a singer and dont say the rebbe didnt approve of demonstrations at all besides influencing russian political astuteness or understanding to religious convention and freedom is one thing fighting against surrender and jewish body endangerment is totally another especially when judaism in its modern application is begrudgingly in… Read more »

People have told me they get SO inspired seeing Chabad stand up for Eretz Yisrael. Many times we are only a few Chabadniks? But people get excited and knowing that we are there gives them strength to go on. Everybody knows the mesirus nefesh that Chabad has to stand up for what is right and to not leave our fellow Jews in the lurch. Every time I go to rallies people tell me: “Where is Chabad?” Because they know how much the Rebbe stood up for the Jews in the Holy Land and never let up emphasizing that we should… Read more »

Since When Is Chabad for Making Money Off Of Others Suffering?

I totally agree that Shlichus is so important. But I must take issue with the absurd thought that Shilchus means ignoring Jews in danger and silently leaving them to rot. If anything, this is part of our Shlichus! Just as we stood up for Jewish life in Russia, in Eretz Yisrael, this is not only Jewish religious life and so many Chabad houses, but a clear danger to Jewish life! When is it that we consider our comforts (Our “Kol tuv Olam HaZeh” so to speak) and “what will people think” over a clear danger to Jews losing lives and… Read more »

Israeli flags?!

Israeli flags?!

The Israeli flags at a supposedly Chabad sponsored event make me very uncomfortable. Though I’m not a Chabadnik, but a friend and admirer Chabad,it is my understanding that the Lubavitcher Rebbe zt”l was no Tziyoni, that he spoke against Zionism, that he insisted on referring to the land as eretz-Yisroel, not medinat-Yisroel, and that he said the Zionist phrase “reishis tzmichas ge’ulaseinu” pushes away the true geulah. His firm opposition against giving away land came from the Torah, having nothing to do with the Zionist nationalism reflected by the Israeli flag!

If people bring flags, we don’t have to like it, but at least they are coming to the rally out of love of Israel. It doesn’t mean we agree with the State wholeheartedly; if we did there’d be no reason for a rally.

Author: I think you meant “crystalize” not polarize.

There is no proof for the claim that the Rebbe is against public protests for shleimus ha’aretz. Though the Rebbe was against protests for Russian Jewry, the two are very different.
