    Better that he shouldn’t be, and instead the masses will think that Zalman Schechter was the most influential religious leader in America?

    doesnt belong there, the rebbe is bichlal not in that type of category, and its only because of an infeority complex of niheye kechol hagoyim, that some of us insist that the Rebbe get in, and by doing that it is actually a disservice to the Rebbe and lubavitch biclal.

    How many more Jews are going to learn about the Rebbe? The negative comments are always from ignorant people who don’t know that there exists life out of Crown Heights.

    he dosnt live anywhere near crown heights, or in the USA for that matter.
    the Rebbe does not belong between all those that trashed yidishkeit in the US.
    He rebuilt it

    What a real disgrace to true yiddishkeit our rebbas in gan eden or on this universe don’t belong in places such as these
    it minimizes their greatness. A git gebentched year.

    Alot of congressional gold winners are also shvantzyoren. But the rebbe got it for his positive impact on humanity. Also, it’s a Jewish hall of fame. Some of those figures are famous for bad , and some of them are famous for the good influence they had on yiddishkeit like the Rebbe.

    this reminds me of the results of a poll in 1936 to decide the worlds 6 leading jews. the frieriker rebbe was one of them , and the rest of them were louis brandies, albert einstien, chaim wizenman…..

    What the Rebbe's opinon?

    What the Rebbe's opinon?

    After being released from prison the Alter Rebbe wrote that it was a miracle even in the eyes of the ministers, The Rebbe spoke about this many times during farbrangens of 19 Kisleiv and asked: who cares that some anti Semitic Russian sees the greatness of the Alter Rebbe? the Rebbe said that this is the point that g-dliness penetrated the world even to the point view of a non-Jewish minster. I think that this might gives us the Rebbe’s opinion in this debate, that even though in truth it does not add any greatness to the Rebbe to be… Read more »

    Do you have more information about the poll in 1936?

    Its not about Crown Heights

    This is not about inferiority complex or superiority complex. It is not about OUR opinion about the Rebbe or to say that Rebbe belongs with these poeple. It is about the fact that millions of people will learn about the Rebbe and ipso facto, learn about Yiddishkeit and Moshiach. Like the Rebbe says: use my name if it helps (bring people to Yiddishkeit) I think this is a great moment. This means that the Rebbe is accepted as a Nossi not only amongst the frum yidden of the world, but also by the secular world. The Rebbe never wanted to… Read more »

    The whole hall of fame was build to glorify the greatness of the Rebbe. The Aibershter created a whole material world to glorify his name.

    This is OBVIOUSLY not about the Rebbe’s “Greatness” which of ocurse here is unneccesary, but rather exposure of the Rebbe and What he taught and stood for to many more Yidden

    Surely one can not compare THE REBBE to anyone!
    This is JUST and BUT one more way we can bring THE REBBE to people.

    a true shanda and charpa that a holy tzaddick is shown next to un-tzniusdiker women, and men who are KREINK to wear a yarmulkah! – and this…is a “kiddush lubavitch!?”
    Did ANY of the holy rabbeiyim ever compete for “Mr. Russia” or did ANY of the holy rebbitzens ever run for “Miss Russia”!? What’s next….? Time magazine, The Nobel Prize, Newsday? Is a holy tzaddick going to R”L end up on the front cover of the “National Enquirer”?!?

    I agree that it is sad that the Rebbe is being placed alongside such people as if chas v’shalom their efforts are equivalent…HOWEVER….I agree with Derlebt’s comment: “Better that he shouldn’t be, and instead the masses will think that Zalman Schechter was the most influential religious leader in America?” And in addition, remember when Elie Weisel said the Rebbe didn’t need the Congressional Medal of Honor, but maybe we do…Maybe we in Lubavitch also don’t need this “honor” but American Jewry, many of whom are assimilated, need this “honor” if it means that they will look at and think about… Read more »
