    He probably had more parnassa as a drug dealer.

    Here is just one example where you see the positive in the Tzfatim society, they provide people who have very strong spiritual needs with something to be “High” on.
    Although we may disagree and it may be annoying to some of us we can still see the beauty in what they do, instead of being a crack-cocaine user they get high on other things.
    If you want to hate you can hate, but if your looking too love you can always find it.

    on a side note:

    ever wonder:
    how many shluchim out there actually produce lubaitchers? I mean, with all the works, (as they used to do going back 30 years)? very few…
    and those crazy tzfatis make them by the dozen (sure, they are all nuts, but tachles… they have results while we are sitting in our own ——)…
    L’chayim!

    can tell you are a typical farmer. the shluchim today have plenty of beutifull and great bal tesuvas, the part that you dont see is that since they dont stand out with flags and bumper stickers you do not notice them. the so called BT’s from maschistin are only that “maschistin” which in fact is realy a danger, if you look on the web you will find videos of some of these BT’s which become mushrooms and your hair will stand up with some of the things that they do. for the most part most of them arent even knowledgeble… Read more »

    Each one of us must do his work without judging and evaluating eachother.
    The question you and I should be asking ourselves is: “How many chassidim have I made”?

    2. Success is not necessarily in quantities as you write. The Rebbe mentions in a Sicha the value of quality Chassidim/Baalei Teshuva. The difference between stam fruits and a vineyard.

    3. If you are not a shliach….

    Der iker iz m’zol zain freilach, freilach begashmius. Dos iz chassidus 🙂

    Everyone has diff personalities

    Everyone has diff personalities

    Some people may be inspired by the Tzfati behavior and become frum but more sophisticated pple will not!!
    Every shliach has diff personalities which attract people in their community. I’ve seen this firsthand. Some cold shluchim are not that successful and warmer shluchim are more successful, because MOST people are attracted to the “varemkeit”.

    your not getting the message:
    he has life now
    “Learning Chassidus puts you on a ‘high’ without a ‘down’ and without ruining people’s lives,” he tells them.
    you are focusing too much on gashmius 🙁
    rely on Hashem for all your needs – that is true freedom

    be positive!

    How many campus Shluchim have students that not only marry Jews yet become frum and even wear Shaitels! Chabad all over is doing great work and i know the Rebbe is proud. We can always to more thats, true.

    would be a good story if....

    you don't know

    you don't know

    most of you don’t know what the Baalei Teshuva have been through, and how much they have to offer!!
