The Rebbe still influences and gives brochos to our lives
Every single Jewish man, woman and child who put up with all the life changes the past year

So inspired by her work, we need more Lubavitchers to step up with her!

No sense

Can’t understand why when Jews are being targeted and attacked constantly for NOT being black, some people want to pretend that the only problem is racism against blacks.
Where were these people when Jews were getting beaten up everyday?

Thank you for everything you’re doing for this community and for standing in solidarity with BLM. You represent true Chabad.

Standing in solidarity with BLM?!?

Standing in solidarity with BLM does not represent true Chabad. That’s a total joke.

Tell me where was Maayan and her lib friends when their Jewish brothers and sisters were being subjected to near daily attacks of hate crime, to the extent which officers with rifles were stationed on the corners of our streets?

I’m waiting…. still waiting….

That’s right, there were no where to be found.

It's a step up

They used to take a stand for saving chickens from kapporos so now at least they acknowledge that some human life matters

Representing Chabad in the best way, thank you for your work!!

BLM is an Antisemitic Organization.
They could care less about Black Lives. They are just using you to further there agenda.

You’ve been taught to reflexively reject even the simple notion that black lives matter and deserving of respect. You are convinced there must be a hidden agenda. What if they’re isn’t? What if black lives matter means simply that? Just the simple pshat. They were created by Hashem and their lives matter no less than you and me. Stop judging people by the color of their skin. Nobody’s saying that black lives matter MORE than anyone else or that ONLY black lives matter.

Read their website, what they stand for!!
Black lives matter, ALL Black lives Matter. BLM only cared about white on black, not Black on black, or black on white.
I respect that she doesn’t want her sons targeted for the color of their skin, but spk to respectful law abiding Black men, they seem to be OK.
Every Black male in these situations have had run ins with the law!

It does imply that

When you don’t stand up for Jews when they are being attacked and assaulted in your own neighborhood…you are saying that Jews don’t matter

Thank you Mayaan for showing the world what Judaism stands for! Black Lives Matter!!

Zelenko has long been discredited. I respect he was a news story and influential, but in the end, his medical claims were never proven and one could claim he did serious damage as people trusted his advice and did not look for more reputable medical advice.

The Zelenko Protocol (HCQ/zinc/azythromycin administered early in the course of illness) is an issue which is obviously brought up all over the internet. You claim that his protocol has been discredited. While I’ve seen studies indicating, at best, no benefit in severely ill patients, Zelenko and his proponents claim that his protocol was never intended for such patients. I’d like to clarify that I’m not strongly leaning towards either side. I’m just interested in the truth (a precious and rare commodity these days). The issue with claiming a protocol works or has been discredited is that such claims need evidence.… Read more »

The NIH says: ( https://www.covid19treatmentguidelines.nih.gov/antiviral-therapy/chloroquine-or-hydroxychloroquine-with-or-without-azithromycin/ )


  • The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel (the Panel) recommends against the use of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine with or without azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients (AI).
  • In nonhospitalized patients, the Panel recommends against the use of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine with or without azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19, except in a clinical trial (AI).
  • The Panel recommends against the use of high-dose chloroquine (600 mg twice daily for 10 days) for the treatment of COVID-19 (AI).

RationaleThe safety and efficacy of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine with or without azithromycin have been evaluated in randomized clinical trials, observational studies, and single-arm studies. Please see Chloroquine or Hydroxychloroquine With or Without Azithromycin: Selected Clinical Data for more information.”

Notice that you have left out the use of zinc which is a very important part of the zelenko protocol.

Zelenko’s alleged medical reviews are not real. One recent publication with his name on it (Elsevier) is not a study as several people have mistakenly thought. Rather, it is a compilation of his his earlier findings. The subject group is very small. No one has been able to get the same results as him. What are we left to believe? His extrapolations he made in one of his early videos was very questionable.

If anyone gets covid, I would ask for monoclonal antibody (MAB) infusion from Regeneron or Eli Lilly immediately. The president and friends.

This is SO FALSE! Ever read the book, (highly recommended by Bill Gates) – “How to lie with statistics”? The protocol works and saves lives! This is not one physician, but 100’s who are using it. The tests showing otherwise were “faked” – included the following mistakes: Gave the treatment too late in the disease course. Failed to include the primary ingredient; Zinc! Gave ultra high dangerous doses – nothing to do with the protocol. There are studies showing the effectiveness of this evolving protocol. Just looking at the dozens of high profile Republicans who exhibited complete full recovery from… Read more »

except that I and dozens of other people that I know had covid, and kept getting worse untill we took Dr Zelenko’s medicine, and that all of a sudden we started to get better.

circumstantial evidence of so many people is not something you just ignore.

Every Life Matters, that includes each human being.
I am sympathetic to each human I come in contact with and I need to say that I have been highly discouraged watching human beings use BLM as an excuse violence and hate. Bases on that, I cannot in good conscience support a group like that.

That is why we do need to send a message against all those abortion clinics that are killing all those black babies. Abortion rate for blacks is at a much higher rate than whites and we need to be together with our fellow black neighbors in fighting against this

January 3, 2021 9:50 pm

Last comment. I stand by my statements. I feel that he made some strong claims that he could never back up. Most doctors would strongly suggest not using his protocol. I’d rather use Monoclonal antibody (MAB) infusion from Regeneron or Eli Lilly immediately. This is what trump was given when he was sick. There are medical trials supporting it.

Regarding zelenko, .. . .

Actually the WHO quietly came out at the end of December, acknowledging that the HcQ, zinc combo might work when treated early. Remember it was done quietly because if people realize that that protocol and Ivermectin with doxycycline work, they would not be allowed to have emergency authorization for the vaccine. They also wouldn’t be able to keep lockdowns, destroying businesses, livelihoods, communities and mental health which was the global goal in the first place. Open your eyes and fight back before it’s too late! Look at all the different variables and put it together. Virus, lockdowns, masks, social distancing,… Read more »

Four things that put the matter of “The Zelenko Protocol” to rest. (at least for me) 1) https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0924857920304258 (Peer-reviewed) 2) Every report/study that culminated in failure has blatantly omitted one or more of the instructions for the protocol. (Surf online and see for yourselves.) The easy steps of the protocol are simple enough for a 1st-grader to understand and follow. 3) Every report/study that complied with the simple protocol has resulted in very remarkable success. (Surf online and see for yourselves.) 4) I, personally, am employed at a Brooklyn Nursing home that lost dozens of patients (and a few staff… Read more »
