    Dear Writer,You wrote a very nice peice…although I take objection to the part that you like Crown Heights because of the “ccookie cutter”…… I beg to differ…Yes you are right surely when you say “its all about perspective”…. but that word is what made the issues we in crown heights…the ones that feel that what has been truly once Lubavitch…is no more…precisely because people are Lubavitchers or Chabad…a word that was never used when I was growing up…to do as they please because they have a “perseptive”… sorry I was taught that a Chosid is Bittul… Yeshes doesnt exsist,,, ICH… Read more »

    CH RESIDENT

    USED TO BE EVERYONE WANTED TO LIVE IN CH AND BE AROUND THE REBBE AND IT TOOK ALOT OF MESIRAS NEFESH TO LEAVE AND GO ON SHLICHUS.

    TODAY IS THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN CROWN HEIGHTS THAT HAVE THE MESIRAS NEFESH AND DESERVE THE CREDIT FROM CHABAD AROUND THE WORLD FOR KEEPING THEIR HOMES OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND AND KEEPING THE REBBES SHCHUNA A PLACE WHERE JEWS LIVE!!

    80% OF SHLUCHIM WOULD RATHER BE ON SHLICHUS THEN LIVE IN CH. (99% OF THE YOUNGER GENERATION)

    ask 80% of shluchim where they would rather be living. and its not just shluchim most lubavitchers moved and keep moving out all over the world, from monsey to miami to LA PA and more.

    i recently started going to 770 on an average night, not just to get a minyan for mariv, but to just hang out @ around 9:30, watch the bocherim learning. the place is packed with people learning, people that are interested, no wackos, check it out.

    Attn collive: let's be positive!

    Thank you for something positive! What a breath of fresh air.

    To the collive editors: why must you sensationalize –the heading of the article implied that there would be something negative coming up (–“…I’m glad I don’t live there”). As I read the article, in the back of my mind I was therefore waiting for the complaint….I was actually not even going to open this article because I didn’t want to hear negativity–and that’s what the heading implied!

    Please remember–what’s your message?

    whether a person goes on shlichus out of mesirus nefesh (i.e., he’ll rather be in CH), or he goes because he doesn’t feel like being in CH, or doesn’t like CH, – makes little difference. bottom line: he is doing what the rebbe encouraged each and everyone to do. those that are not up to leaving CH, no doubt that the second best option is to keep the rebbe’s shchuna alive. (but don’t convince yourself that you are on mesirus nefesh to do what the rebbe wants. just read the sichos and you’ll see what the best course of action… Read more »

    Regarding the title:
    Guest
    Regarding the title:

    There are two choices: 1. A title that highlights the positive viewpoint of the article 2. A title that is almost misleadingly negative. The first option would attract readers looking for positivity, and actually give it to them. The second option attracts readers looking for another dose of negativity to add to their daily reading, and instead gives them a taste of what they need most, positivity, while also giving them what to appreciate in hopes tomorrow they will be the person who would have been attracted with the alternate title, in search of a dose of positivity.
