    If my husband would be 1% aware of everything that I have to put up with, or as this guy said it,even in a joking way, because he didn’t sound to serious, I, maybe, wouldn’t feel so revolted that he is a hero to thousands and thousands of people, because when he comes home,he behaves like an animal. Usually the public service men are the WORST husbands. So it’s nice to hear someone say my hero is my wife.

    i thnk its time to think about this YYJ – he may be the rov mit a kapoteh vos frest ve a chaya on the table for shabbos.

    the quotes of such prosteh goyim in your high holiday speeches the quotes on this video — the question is vos tuts zich mit dir??? you are making a charpeh and busha of yomim noroim and of yiddishkeit in general.

    vi past far a mashpia to openly quote and revere arailim and the lowest of them noch and to mentoin them on achas bashano?????

    search throught the 22+ pages. There are many Lubavitchers that were recently added, like Rabbi Yerachmiel Gorellek (Colorodo), Moishe Feiglin (ALIYA), and many others.

    It’s nice when someone notices that a person close to them is a hero. It doesn’t need to be a famous activist, it could be your spouse, sibling, parent or friend. Lucky wife, whose husband is smart enough to appreciate her!

    What are you talking about. I know of about 20 bochrim who have become more frum because of YY. His speaches on the yommim noarim don’t have to be used by you if you dont like them. But all shluchim use them BECAUSE THEY ARE AMAZING. If you don’t like it than go back into your house and have ARAFAT be your hero. You obviously hate jews just as much!!!!!!

    Albert Einstein ???

    yyj speeches are very good as a speech. Have Chabad Chassidishe Rabbis become speech zogers. If his speeches were prepared for other occassions I agree they are fantastic and inspiring but this is yomim noroim and we are supposed to be shluchim – spokepeople for the Rebbe and chassidus. You think in your wildest dreams YYJ would present a speech like this for the Rebbe to be spoken by his shluchim on yomim noroim? You can use all the terutzim in the world Chassidim should be preaching chassidus not jokes kirk douglas, parrots, people married to goyim, goyim themselves, and… Read more »

    maybe but than that is up to the shliach (who buys his speech) to edit it out. but his material is good. and on the yomim noarim you do needspeeches. for lubavs maybe not but for shluchim its great.

    He didn’t say Einstein is his hero. Can’t you hear the editing?? He was in middle of saying something about Einstein and they cut it!!

    What is the matter with people?? This isn’t even a case of Dan Lkaf Zechus it’s simply about listening!

    YYJ –
    I totally agree with #3 and #6.

    this is not what Chassidus teaches us!

    Shlomo Carlebach wasd also “Mekarev” Many people to “Yidishkeit”!

    you say: “I know of about 20 bochrim who have become more frum because of YY.”

    Well: Zalman Schechter שיחיה And Shlomo Carelbach ע”ה were Mekarev many Yidden! but not in the DERECH of CHABAD!

    chill out people

    YYJ is making a point – it doesnt mean Einstein is his hero…
    No reason to get bent out of shape – he is saying it to get noticed…it shows that rabbis can admire scientists…

    I think everyone should go chill out. YYJ came to our Chabad House and rocked the place with Yiddishkeit.

    No cookie cutters please

    To number 6 and any other naysayers — I didn’t go past that post — I had no appetite for more. I am part of the community, not an outsider and I think many chabad chassidim have a real problem with “fargening.” We all have flaws, mine are probably worse than that. But it always crops up on these websites. There is always a stuch to someone successful in any area of life . I apologize — don’t mean to criticize, but ti got to me.

    to #6 - your zealosness is embarresing me

    I am a fellow lubavicther, a shliach.

    I read all of YYJ HH speeches and was moved beyond words. Dozens of men and woman, young and old, from all walks of life that were in my chabad house this past RH & YK were moved beyond words — listening to the rich message that was real, alive and meaningful.

    Your zealousness to criticize is embarrassing to me – and you should be embarrassed to have reacted like a true behiema.

    tsk tsk

    how do you know that he was asked who his hero is? maybe they asked him to name the 20th century’s greatest scientist. The clip of him was him saying Albert Einstein with no context. (ps. I am not Rabbi Jacobson, or even a family member)

    What Jacobson Really said

    What Jacobson Really said

    I was there when it was filmed. He was talking about how he admired the little people which are rarely recognized, noting that many of the ‘big heroes’ were hated by their own family. He continued, ‘take for example Albert Einstein……….’ Deceptive Editing. Dont believe everything you see
