    In Conversation: Rabbi Krinsky

    In 1957, Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky was recruited by the Rebbe to serve as a member of his secretariat. He recently spoke about those days in an interview with Baila Olidort. Full Story

    Very interesting! I was just wondering what the Rebbe said or did, that let them know the Rebbe would be living in 770. Did the Rebbe ask to bring a bed? what exactly happened?

    inspiring and incredible – yet it appears this does not even scratch the surface of the stories Rabbi Krinsky and his colleagues could tell of the Rebbe and their connection.
    If only they could be persuaded to write all their memories down for us …

    Very moving.

    Kol hakovod to the Rabbi for sharing. He’s been quiet all the years, and for good reason. His job demanded it. But I think he would agree (looks like he did!) that he should do at least some talking.

    another fabulous interview by Mrs Olidort. The question of the wise is itself half the answer. Perhaps a book of her interviews is in the making?

    though the growth of chabad membership and outposts growth model doesnt neccesarily indicate a sense of being current in the diologue for jewish connectivity are people learning more or less are bochurim knowing more or knowing less

    You should interview Rabbi K more often and grill him with lots of questions. Maybe we can have a special post where everone can submitt a questoon and he will answer them every so often.
    We all want to know more!

    Nice article, but the Rebbe made it very publicly clear on 28 Nissan 5751 that since and if there is no explicit and complete Moshiach, everything he did was for “empty air and spit.” He did not assume his role nor aim for just revival of Jewish life. His bar was set, from day one, above exile and into redemption. From a Peace Corp, corporate sprawl perspective R Krinsky can be pleased to be part of and somewhat atop Chabad, Inc. but to say “the Rebbe {absolutely, yes} lived to see a big part of his vision realized” is not… Read more »

    Rabbi Krinsky has /is doing a sterling job administering Lubavitch Inc.
    Who is steering and leading Chabad as a derech in avoidas Hashem?
    Why has no one (or group) called for information the Rebbe may have left (said or written to a private person) regarding these times. This would seem to be a normal procedure (for 15 years ago!!)

    AMAZING ARTICLE!!!

    Wow!!! VERY INSPIRING!
    Thank you so much for sharing!!!

    for clarity

    There were 2 wills. One in English that left all the Rebbe’s personal items to Agudas Chasidei Chabad. The second in Hebrew that described the Rebbe’s main 3 organisations and who should lead going forward. Before tis starts a whole dialogue, remember according to Halacha a document needs to be signed ONLY by the witnesses in order for it to have validity (if your not sure look at your Kesuba! (or Get)!).

    Maybe the trash can be soon cleaned out of 770?

    Serious Mistake To 26

    Serious Mistake To 26

    The Rebbe never said that “everything he did” was for “empty air and spit.”

    He said that everything he did to make everyone clamor for Moshiach was for “empty and nought.”

    Chas v’sholom to suggest that the Rebbe’s entire avodah of 94 years was for nought, G-d forbid.

    take that for honesty and integrity

    Lubavitch.com interview of Krinsky is like the Pravda interviewing Kruschev

    Number 26 doesn’t seem to know the difference between rik and roke. (naught and ‘spit’)

    Understand your terminology first, before mis-translating.

    As for the comment that Rabbi Krinsky doesn’t “sound Lubavitch,” Yes.. isn’t that wonderful? What a breath of fresh air.

    AD MASAI!?!? If he already called himself “the leader of Lubavitch in the post schneerson era” WHY???? can’t he just become a new rebbe of lubavitch also?
