    What a stupid question. If you knew his father you wouldn’t have to ask.

    That’s only in CH, do u think Rav Yossi Shusterman of Beverly Hills & Rav Shimon Raichik of Los Angeles were elected ? It’s a Crown Heights thing only, not in any other city r there elections they r appointed & that’s the normal way of doing it. Less issues that way.

    The Chasam Sofer advocates elections in his T’shuvos. The Rebbe agreed to recommended elections for CH as well. It doesn’t mean that its a Chabad Minhag for every other Chabad community.

    I could be wrong though according to Shulchan Aruch Rabonis is handed father to son if a son is capable … In CH the Rebbe wanted a Bais Din

    A son who has Yiras Shomayim automatically inherits his father’s position. Uncontested Halacha. Stop with the election irrelevance.

    It's their neighborhood,

    not the internet’s neighborhood, so if they agree upon a leader its nobody else’s business. Even a minhag from the outskirts of a chinese mountain to hold a ballot by collecting chap sticks has no relevance to what these individuals choose to do. It’s their community, not my and yours, and they could appoint whoever they want.

    the tragedies we are experiencing in droves, can be greatly reduced or even eliminated, by practicing what what the Rebbe writes in todays Hayom Yom.
