    sounds fishy and excuses

    this is inexcusable that their work should go in vain because of some short term visas

    i bet most probably theres something under the surface
    but this is “capitulation” to terror i find it hard to beileve that some yungerman looking for action wont want to sit still and do this

    That's fine... that's the basherte thing to do..... why

    why should the new couple go back to Mumbai? Mumbai is compared to the new post-Poland, where all the Jewish sparks have been elevated to their extent and now let the city of Mumbai appreciate what chesed and tzedek was in their midst… In Yiddish they say: LOZ ZEI BROCHON DEM KOP” whatever…. let the goyim handle their own affairs….. Let the Israeli backpacking tourist teenagers go to a more quiet, cleaner area to find their roots. Like 770 Eastern Parkway!!!!!!!

    poland there was a directive from the Rebbe (maybe…). Mumbai is not a tourist area…..

    Why don’t they take the short term visa in the meantime?

    Let all the jews come to 770! lets not have shluchim at all! think before you speak.

    Who are you to judge?

    You have no idea what this couple has been through. It is there life, their decision. Who have no right to judge them for what they do and where they decide to live!!!!!

    I would also have doubts going back to the spot where family members were bludgeoned to death Hashem Avenge the Terrorists’ Blood amen…. but I’m not saying everyone head to 770 – the starting pt. where Moshiach will lead us out….. I’m just saying places like Mumbai and Far Eastern – Middle Eastern Extremism areas are not for young jewish couples and their babies… I totally am against it. When my own son was touring China and Vietnam, he wanted to do mivzoyim in Turkey… He thought nothing of it, like hey Bro, like man, you just don’t go into… Read more »

    There is a letter of the renne printed in chelek 14 I think writing tons young couple that they should not go to India because of his tumo

    NO 12 THERE YOU GO!!

    NO 12 THERE YOU GO!!

    You see, there is something to it. The minute you step off a plane in India / Turkey / etc. you feel there is a danger lurking in the air. The tumo has been saturated over the centuries, or from the beginning of time for that matter…. “The Ocean is large and beautiful, but Don’t go inspecting squids and monster crabs in THAT section of the ocean” got the picture?

    Maybe Rabbi Yaakov David and Sara Leiter had a personal reason why they couldn’t go. That none of us know.
