    Shucks, now we can’t use those chickens (according to halacha) – and we’ll have to pay 10 a chicken!!!

    Thanks Dovid

    A Special Thanks To People who do these things! Also thought its funny to note how many ppl we have running to subsidize school tuition! If that was taken care of I might be able to afford kapparos!

    There are going to be many comments regarding “Fisher” what I would like to add. Is that it is over 20 years that Fisher was removed from leadership in Crown Heights. And my request to you is to think back when we were better off? When he was here, we had apartments, housing, and peace and tranquility. We now have a bunch of people who only have a personal agenda. The Badatz self destructed, as it never really did have a true and real foundation, it was only created by the rich to kick out fisher. The facts are. That… Read more »

    If Fisher is in Cherem – then don’t forget that so is Rabbi Osdoba (issued by Agudas Harabonim)!
    (As far as Rabbi Marlow AH – upon his own request, his Cherem was lifted before his passing) .

    The ONLY problem NOW with Rabbi Fischer is that he personaly davens VERY LOUD in his Shul (and mixes people up) – so some people don’t go there.

    Besids the fact that ONE TABLE of Mispallelim don’t stop talking during davening.

    i was by the fabrangens
    read up on what the rebbe said about david fisher!
    do we think after 20 years the rebbes words a just words?
    read the sicha(S) and tell me when the rebbe spoke like that about any1…………..
    so maybe u might be better off with fisher but the rebbe did not think so

    there is no mitzva to buy a chicken for every family member for kapporos u can use one for all the males and one for all the females instead you can give the money to real poor peop;e in the community!

    Don’t forget who fisher is and where he got lots of his money, yes he did do a lot of nice things, but it was, allegedly, with other peoples money, which is what led to him being called to beis din and becoming a musurav ledin when he did not cooperate.

    I agree with #9 too. And pardon my ignorance, but instead of pointing me in any direction, I challenge you to actually quote the Rebbe here, on this page, what the Rebbe said negeiah Dovid Fischer. I want to see it in black & white. If you are 100% sure the Rebbe spoke against Rabbi Fischer (#18 said screamed???!) then QUOTE IT HERE!! I am not a Fischer Fan, but what’s right is right & he’s helping large families today, like he helped large families 35+ years ago. So he got rich. And Drizin isn’t making a fortune?

    the sign is still up
    he is in Cherem
    and whatever you might say about him on this blog means nothing
    go read “tzadik lamelech” and see what the rebbe said about him.
    harsh words
    so say what you will if the rebbe is “nitzchi” then the rebbe is “nitzchi” no if,and or butts

    The Rebbe publicly said by Fabrengen and wrote to Rabbi Zirkind, “Whoever can claim the Rebbe spoke about a specific person is fighting the Rebbe and all previous Chabad Rebbes.” We agree to #25 The Rebbe never spoke about Rabbi Fischer and never mentioned his name. Stop using the Rebbe for these quotes. Prove the Rebbe ever mentioned Rabbi Fischer name shame on you for misinterpreting the Rebbe’s words. The Rebbe was never against him. Lets see what Rabbi Fischer accomplished Rabbi Fischer built the only womens mikvah in Crown Heights that all of Lubavitcher women use and has never… Read more »

    thats right. If a person is doing bad anything you do to validate this person is wrong. the problem is people who learn chassidus and gemoroh should know how to behave.

    why didnt Guliani take the money from the Saudi Prince??? after all it was tzedokoh for New York.

    Because Guliani understands what Chassidim who are supposed to be chachomim dont understand.

    When you take money from a bad man and you publicly acknowledge and thank him you are minimizing the terrible deeds he does.

    You dont take money from bad people period. Goyim undertand that.

    Well, it seems that only #32 accepted the challenge to say what the Rebbe actually said to/about Dovid Fischer. And I don’t see anything so bad. Funny how as soon as anyone asks these mavanim to quote they suddenly stop talking. I’m open-minded. If there is anything, I’m listening. i just had the same conversation with my son, also a maven on everything the Rebbe said. Halavai he really does know everything he’d be a star, an illuy. He may be my son but he’s just as brainwashed as every other kid round here. He wasn’t even born when all… Read more »

    Better to use 18 cents for kaporos, than all this loshon haorah against an individual and a community. I never know who Fischer was (except the chess player) before today.

    why dont we talk about love instead of hate. why are we harper on a dispute that happened 20 yrs ago. second he is a man that has chasidesh qualities, hes a talmid chachom and a yiras shmoayim. he is a man that does chesed for people and helps the community. he is a good person. people grow up and give praise where priase is due. perhaps if people would show the proper repect to reb dovid, he would help with the tutition crisis as well. let just all grow up. love is more powerful than hate….

    Whatever DF did or didn’t do wrong, he Rebbe and the community were repeatedly given very faulty information about DF’s activities. I’ve seen a letter from DF begging, crawling, to the Rebbe to help clear his name. And for people who think the Rebbe magically knew the truth about every situation, watch the video recently posted of that long-ago tashlich, how people who had changed their hats had to bring “eidis” that they had gone to the tashlich and deserved to get a l’chaim. The people behind DF’s ouster made a lot of money on that. DF has done for… Read more »

    For his decade of work on the Fischer case, Israel Weinstock has made about $500,000 from his share of the buildings he has won back for his clients in court. To date, David Fischer has not paid any settlements, and many of those suing him complain that he continues to pay his lawyers with rent money from the buildings they are fighting over.

    why? cause when a poor widow needed help fisher was there.

    if a big family needed money for yom tov he went to fisher.

    fisher helped float chevra shimcha up until today. right benji? on and on.

    carroll street got cheap private homes for almost nothing. right rabbi shem tov?

    president st and utica wouldn,t look the way it does if not for fisher actually risking jail time so jews could live at 1650 president. right rabbi groner?

    Definition of "Magic"

    any art that invokes supernatural powers. There is nothing “natural” about the Rebbe’s abilities in moifsim stories, so in English that is called magic. Do you like paranormal better? I can just imagine how you would react to the definition of Yechi… But that’s whole other story, and beside the point, the Rebbe didn’t put Reb Dovid in cherem, the rabbonim did, and they certainly could have been tricked, and they were. Because someone who does so much for a Jewish community, who’s osek btzorchei tzibbur b`emunah, should be loved and respected, not treated with contempt and cherems, at least… Read more »

    of all the ignorant comments yours is the winner. That is the stupidest conclusion in the world. when the beis din does something silly the rebbe not undoing it doesn’t in anyway show that he agrees with their logic, it just means that unfortunantly the inmates have taken over the assylum
