All that wasted paper is Bal Tashchis too.

Stop complaining

At least people are learning something. The pamphlets add spice to one’s Shabbos and inspire people. Complaining is the yetzer hara.

“Yetzer Hara”?!

Are you actually calling a statement by a respected mashpia, who probably knows and practices far more Chassidus than you, something from “the Yetzer Hara”?!

Agree, for many reasons

At Hadar Hatorah, too much sheimos, most of us can’t read it, we have a huge library, and he is write, chitas and Rambam is already overwhelmingly, and shnayim mikra, forget about it!! These pamphlets are delivered without permission, and destination is stuck with sheimos disposal…

Go HMS!

I can't say I fully agree

While stupid content shouldn’t be printed and not every tom dick and Harry needs to begin a new publication, Torah and story paphmlets makes learning more avilable and accessible. While one may not go to the shelf to find something to read or learn and he may not even know where to look, here it is accessible. What’s wrong with a chassidshe story or vort for the Shabbos table? Not to detract from learning from seforim, rather to complement or for those who aren’t “big seforim guys”.

Shaimos cost

Waste of funds to cover shaimos costs
These pamphlets are printed so somebody can charge for the printing
Then the shul has the burden to bury it in shaimos

Shaimos

Some people hold that since these are not sifrei kedusha and do not have Hashem’s name
that they can be discarded, especially if double wrapped.

I concur ! Save the bookstores ! LOL

It’s out of hand and the shaymis is more then ever ! The word kavod is mentioned umpteen times during tefillos shouldnt Seforim, Shuls, etc be required to pass inspections per Halacha and derech Eretz !
Matza chen baynay elokim vadam is necessary for Brachos to manifest ! Shalom !

NO!

These pamphlets are targeted only for certain ppl in order for them to keep busy with Torah related material rather then talking between themselves. it’s like giving a lollypop to a child to keep quiet…

A disgrace!

Such a chutzpah! How dare we entice Anash to perhaps read some inspiring words or divrei torah! We must stop these papers in shul so finnally we can talks sports at the shabbos table instead of sharing the story or vort we read in shul. Say not to chizuk! Say not to divrei torah! Likutei sichos only! Also we should not have the easier sichos, only the more complicated sichos. That is the best way to ensure we eradicate torah from the home of our laymen.

Lol
