The Rebbe Rashab sent money to Chevron to buy the zechus of lighting the fire. So even if we didn’t see it done in Lubavitch, it can’t be dismissed as “andere kreizen.”

Fire lighting was is ONLY a Minhag Eretz Yisroel. In our “Kreizen” in Chutz Laoretz it was never done. Not in Lubavitch, not in Rostov, not Otvotzk, not NY. This is a new thing post Gimml Tammuz copying other Kreizen….

Think about it...

I am assuming you would only approve of concerts etc. because its not so common by Chaga'”s (and not to get overly involved in Torah learning as well for the same reason) LOL

Copying

Copying

As long as its a good thing it is mature and good to copy (see Pirkei avos). I hope that is what you teach your kids.

Ridiculous...

I have yet to hear someone say not to copy a good business model, food recipes etc. because its chaga”s. How much more so when it comes to ruchnius (as long as no clear instruction otherwise)…

Loved the music
