A group of bochurim went on Thursday night to Times Square in New York City and recited Kiddush Levana - even engaging some Jewish passersby. Photos

What’s First: Peeling or Bracha?

This was inspired and led by the mashgiach of 770 r’ kuta rap a”h for many years.

Go do it!

Whoever doesn’t want these guys to get publicity- go do your own mivtzoim!!! They’re getting publicity because they’re getting the job done. If you think ‘regular normal’ chabad needs to be more recognized- do the actions to get it!!! If you really hate on them so much, maybe see it as a competition for who’s gonna win this golus war and bring moshiach!! Step up your game. Do your part. Honestly whatever it takes we can only use more good deeds in this world- your cause for motivation matters less so whatever works.

in 1980 the rebbe spoke how bouchrim are complaining the fridiker rebbe never went to time square to do mivstoim so the rebbe said never the less there should be mivstoim done in time square.

in shabbos noach 5752 the rebbe speaks how it is very important to do mivtza kiddush levana…

im sure this boys if they say yechi or not, or making the rebbe very proud.

Lo am haeretz chasid

To #6 don’t miss quote the rebbe look up the sicha for your self (chay-sara 5752)

To #7 that’s the exact complaints that the satmer were saying in the 70s….. Which was addressed by the rebbe

#5 is correct

Agreed, I am totally mortified by this all too. Was actually sent a pic on this from a non-chabad guy and he mentioned how sad this looks in times square when you guys are so amazing outside that wild circle of extremes. For those that say about the rebbe this, and the rebbe wanted that, you have NO clue what he really wanted, and this would fall into the things he would NEVER be OK with. Talking about moshiach and all is great and would have been accepted even better had the wild eye message be removed from the get… Read more »

Go do mivtzoim instead of complaining. No one in the picture seems to be upset or bothered, on the contrary they seem happy to join. What’s not oifen hamiskabel? That YOU can’t accept it or that the guys over there can’t accept it? Because the guys over there seemed to accept it very well. Regarding doing mivtzoim in Times Square, the Rebbe himself encouraged it in the farbrengen of Rosh Chodesh Shvat 5740, son instead of complaining that they should get mashpi’im (whichoj i have to reason to assume they don’t) it seems like some people could use a little… Read more »

The rebbe said people don’t want to go on mivstoim to time square because they never saw the fridiker rebbe doing that… never the less they should go!

(Rosh Chodesh shevat 1980)

Times Square is not a place for Bochurim to hang out! Never mind, to daven there. Do these guys have a mashpia? Who approved this? What’s the point?

Boifen hamiskabel?
January 31, 2018 3:04 am

The Rebbe told us that inyonei Moshiach must be done boifen hamiskabel. I don’t know if this would be considered what the Rebbe had in mind…

Interesting

Not optimal that tzfatim are the ones that the velt gets exposure from and views and mainstream Chabad. That’s my opinion. Good to see a fellow Aussie wearing a Kathmandu jacket.
