We can help!!
November 20, 2012 12:10 am

We have to stop sitting around moping and do something! We have to improve our tznius and aha as yisroel, because that is all we can do! What else will Hashem have to do to make us see that we need to do better?!? If it is our job to bring moshiach, we better step up and do a better job. How much more innocent blood will be spilt before we see?!? Bnei yisroel, our brethren are suffering!!!!

YOU KNOW WHAT!? ACHDUS IS GOING TO BRING MOSHIACH. AND WE NEED MOSHIACH… IF EVERYONE… I MEAN EVERYONE… WOULD TAKE A GIANT STEP BACK AND ASK THEMSELVES: “DO I WANT MOSHIACH?” IF U DONT WANT MOSHIACH THEN….. */!!!-**!????? IF YOU WANT MOSHIACH THEN YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SWALLOW YOUR EGO AND PRIDE AND HAVE ACHDUS WITH THE OTHER GUY EVEN IF YOU DONT FEEL THAT ITS NECECARY, RIGHT, POLITICALL OR WHATEVER THE HECK U THINK… BECAUSE GUESS WHAT???

You are right. That would be a beautiful project to do in her memory. I am going to try to think of how do get it happening. I am not sure about a competition… but schools and high schools would be a good place to start.

Tznius Protects Jews In Eretz Yisrael!
November 16, 2012 1:42 pm

The Rebbe always said after each terror attack about checking mezuzos. People got upset there also! How dare some Rabbi in Brooklyn blame this one or that one… Today, we have a serious situation that didn’t exist in Lubavitch with tznius. People used to run to dress properly! There was a certain excitement that is missing today due to attention to internet, cell phones, ipods and laptops. Over and over and over again, the Rebbe discussed making a mivtza out of tznius protecting Jews in Israel! It sounds like an odd way to win a war, but this is what… Read more »

true theres a difference between making excuses for H' & finding ways WE (my self included) can do our part to prevent further Bad news RL
November 16, 2012 9:56 am

its not our job to make up excuses for Hashem however where the Rebbe specifically said there are things we in NY (& Chutz-Laaretz) can do to prevent blood shed & tragedies like these from re-occurring, we need to take his words seriously! its for our own well being that the Rebbe alerted us as to WHAT WE CAN DO to stop such things & instead bring all sorts of blessings to our family & communities: 1. Daily Chitas Rambam (even 5min is better than nothing) 2. Regular du”ch ch”hn to Aseh Lecha Rav (personal mentor) 3. Make time daily… Read more »

no gr8ter Ahavas Yisroel than Tznius
November 16, 2012 9:33 am

since Tznius brings soo many brachos & brings Hashem’s protection to all the ppl in a Machane besides most of the (well publicized” machlokes is very very overblown & involves ver very small fraction of our overal poprlation the reason it seems much bigger is bec it gets exaggerated publicity but in reality 99% of mature functional ppl in chabad are too bizy leading productive lives to get involved in these petty machlokisin the real obvious issue plaguing us is “self-esteem” issues which translates onto the street with nebach cases having little else to feel good about themselves & their… Read more »

a clear message for achtus & ahavas yisroel..
November 15, 2012 5:03 pm

Lubavitchers, including a Shlucha in India, are killed on Rosh Chodesh Kislev, on the 4th Yahrtzeit of Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg and the other Kedoshim! Well said… to add to it two women, both pregnant doing the Rebbe’s work have died with such a connection… Hard to believe anyone can ignore that ….rather than pointing fingers and arguing who is to blame… look inside you and work on achtus and ahavas yisroel …. The next time someone tells me they wouldn’t daven “there” in 770 because they wont’ daven with people who say yechi… i may lose it.. Get a… Read more »

First the storm (24 Chabad Houses damaged or destroyed), now this. So many calamities!

Our Celebration turned into Tragedy!
November 15, 2012 3:49 pm

Rosh Chodesh, the same day that the our Rebbe’s HEART was healed.

is the same day of the MUBAI TRAGEDY of murders, including Pregnant Rivki holtzberg a shlucha in India.

is the same day that Lubavitchers in israel are murdered, including Pregnant Mira Scharf, a shlucha from India

Our Celebration turned into Tragedy!

we need to fix our HEART.

we need AHAVAS YISRAEL NOW!
Moshiach NOW!

lack of tznius
November 15, 2012 3:20 pm

is clearly our fault. we have the power to protect our bros in EY, and we are failing. and innocent babies are being killed for it.
so tragic. how much will it take to learn???

intelligent country
November 15, 2012 2:38 pm

TO #9
we are great! most rockets were intercepted! and you know how much more intelligent one dome is than 100 rockets. besides only 1 out of 1000 of their rockets hit! the last time they got a direct hit was on a school bus, and only one child died. oh, and I forgot to mention all the launchers that we destroyed! and Hamas leaders! doesn’t our prime minister learn from tragedy and take proper and timely action!
am yisroel chacham!

oy!
November 15, 2012 2:34 pm

what a tragedy!

agreed the biggest Ahavas yisroel is via Tznius since it positively brings soo many blessings for the entire community
November 15, 2012 2:21 pm

there are very few things an individual can do that have such a powerful affect on the entire good of a neighborhood as does Tznius

its ok to be politically incorrect in order to save lives!!
November 15, 2012 2:19 pm

re #11
your surely correct for bringing up the perspective from our “Rebbe” since Moshe Rabeinu is Hashem’s mouth piece
however, you must be careful not to sound like your judging those who struggle with the YH of immodesty (despite that Torah teaches that immodesty causes the removal of h’s protection etc etc to a community’)

try to Judge the act without judging the person doing the wrong act

this is the way chasidus teaches us,

hate the sin not the sinner!

Tznius &Unity!! Something we all can agree on!!
November 15, 2012 2:11 pm

re unity, most of the dis-unity is a lot more noise than reality 99% of chabad are too bizzy to participate in these childish games by ha (noisy) handful of mecharchevei riv
….. .,.
the reality is that Ahavas Chinum is always a segula

but lets not forget that Dressing modestly = Ahavas Chinum since it prevents Tragedies like THESE R”L

Tznius brings Hashem’s protection & blessings to all memebers of a community! what greater act of Chesed & Ahavas yisroel to dress in a manner that helps an entire community have Hashem’s brachos & protection etc etc

Unity
November 15, 2012 1:29 pm

1. ACHDUS – AHAVAS CHINOM! Enough of Machaloikes! ONE UNITED KINUS HA’SHLUCHIM, ONE UNITED CHABAD BEIS DIN, ONE UNITED SHOMROM/SHMIRA, ONE UNITED COMMUNITY; ONE UNITED NATION IS OUR ONLY SALVATION! 2. TZNIOUS is directly connected to health (each know what they need to do) 3. MOSHIACH! WE NEED TO TELL THE WORLD THE REBBES WORDS AND MESSAGE. WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION OF GALUS AND THE FIRST GEERATION OF GEULAH! Consider this: 3 MAJOR Tragedies in our community in the past 4 years happen on Rosh Chodesh Kisleiv! A day of Joy and miracles (on the heels of the Shluchim… Read more »

I want to add that I agree with some of the comments. It’s important to mention that she was a shlucho in India. No time for politics!

Post sources
November 15, 2012 1:23 pm

Bsd
Many above comments discuss the Rebbe’s views! Post the link, source, Hebrew and English, for people to learn for themselves, and then MAYBE it wil “hit home”

what a shocking twist!

Agree with #19
November 15, 2012 12:50 pm

I think everyone has to make a cheshbon – what can s/he do, where is s/he might be going wrong.

Saying “Tznius” points a finger at someone else. They’re at fault, they need to fix themselves. I’m ok.

Yes, there is a major tznius problem. Yes, most people – even those who are ok in this area – can find room for improvement. But there are so many areas that need fixing. None of us are patur.

Everyone must do a personal cheshbon! Whether tznius, ahavas yisroel, achdus, etc.

May we hear only besuros tovos.
Moshiach now!

Shluchim of the Rebbe - Ahavas Yisroel

They were active Shluchim of the Rebbe doing work on behalf of all of us in India.
Can we say “yodeinu Lo Shafchu es HaDam Hazeh?

The building in Nachalas Har Chabad is my family’s building !!!!!
Thank you all.

3 Lubavitchers, including a Shlucha in India, are killed on Rosh Chodesh Kislev, on the 4th Yahrtzeit of Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg and the other Kedoshim! If we don’t believe in Hashem, then we can just close our eyes and consider it ‘fate’. We do believe in Hashem (we do, right?), isn’t this clearly directed from above?! Hashem demands that we take notice! It’s not just “another” tragedy. Frankly, I’m shocked that in the face of such clear Gzeiras Hashem, in many places they are not even mentioning her Shlichus work in India! I’m a Shliach and I see the… Read more »

November 15, 2012 11:38 am

thanks for channeling us in a direction so that we can DO SOMETHING to stop these tragedies to our Machaneh!

fyi:

its not just the Rebbeh who links specifically Tznius to Protection

many mefarshim on the Pasuk “VeHayu Machanecha Kadosh” explain it the same way

that Hashem doesn’t punish but rather REMOVES his protection from a group that has in it’s midst the opposite of Modesty

similar to Mezuza being pasul = its not a punishment, its a natural affect of not having Hashem’s protection R”L

just bomb gaza
November 15, 2012 11:34 am

Stop with the politics. Just bomb Gaza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Any Israeli politician who is contemplating giving up any more land should be sent to Gaza to live.

we can do something!
November 15, 2012 11:22 am

The Rebbe said clearly that being careful
with tznius k halacha brings shmira protection to
yidden in Eretz Yisroel. So tehillim (neged tillim and )tznius.

so sad
November 15, 2012 11:16 am

bde there are no words for the pain

reality
November 15, 2012 11:10 am

sad it is hard and dificult to say this. but it must be said. the Rebbe said numerous times that what happenes “here” reflects on what happnes in eretz hakoidesh. the fact that many pepole and schluchim can not walk safely and freely in 770 including leaders and pepole who were put by the rebbe in postions of moisdois, this fact means that we have a lot of work to do on our end. isnt it odd that after many years of rockets the first time anyone was killed as a direct result of a rocket were members of Anash?… Read more »

On the same Yartzit as the other Shluchim !

Ad mosai!!! Hachlatos!!!! in the interest of STOPPING THESE TRAGEDIES ALREADY!!!!!
November 15, 2012 11:01 am

Oy vey!!!!!

We must all do all in power to stop these tragedies!!!!!!!!!!!

althought the Rebbe almodst always refrained from justifying G-d’s actions in tragedy
non the less the Rebbeh attributed unexpected calamities in our midst SPECIFICALLY
TO lack of Tsnius!!
….. .,.
yes as uncharacteristic of the Rebbeh to attribute specific causes to calamity & tragedy, re Tznius the Rebbeh took no chances & MADE THESE CONNECTIONS VERY VERY CLEAR – in the interest of protecting our community from harms-way!!!
