New Year, New Tank

Rabbi Levi Baumgarten's Mitzva Tank, regularly parked on Kingston and President St. in Crown Heights between 'missions,' was replaced by a new and colorful motor home. More

who are you to talk ???????
who said that the rebbe does not endorse the slogans.
ITS THE 10 MIVTZOYIM AS YOU SEE,
HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT THIS TANK DOES NO GOOD!
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ON MIVTZOYIM, PUT TEFILLIN ON ANYONE, ANY PLACE WITHOUT SHAME. THIS IS THE WAY TO GO.
GOOD LUCK TO THE NEW TANK, MAY YOU HAVE MUCH HATZLACHA

Embarrassment to the Rebbe

Just wake up and smell the coffee. The Rebbe is the one who sets policy in Lubavitch. And if you are embarrassed with issues that the Rebbe raised and from things that the Rebbe said, that’s your problem. Everything on Levi Baumgarten’s “new” tank is based on the Rebbe’s Sichos. Why don’t you guys just “get a life”.

Way to go!!
And to all the negatives…
Have you ever been to a “simcha” that Levi Baumgarten makes? There are hundreds of “mekuravim”. All from the great work that he does on the “tank”. I guess the only people who are embarrased from the “slogans” are the “negatives”…..

Even though you have the new one the old one an still serve a Purpose why not use both? Manhattan is a big place NYC is even bigger! A roving tank for all of NYC? A rolling chabad house? The possibilities are endless!!

STOP..

STOP..

AD MASIA, ENOUGH WITH THE NEGATIVE COMPLAINTS AND FIGHTS. IS THIS IS GOING TO HELP BRING THE GEULA, FIGHTING..? NO! LOOK AT WHAT RABBI BAUMGARTEN IS DOING, BRINGING HUNDREDS BACK TO YIDDISHKEIT. ARE YOU GOING MIVTZOYIM EVERYDAY LIKE RABBI BAUMGARTEN THAT YOUR CRITIZING HIM LIKE THAT?! ARE YOU DOING THE JOB THAT HE IS..?! LET HIM CONTINUE IN ANY WAY HE FEELS HE’S ATTRACTING MORE PEOPLE. YASHER KOACH.. KEEP IT UP! MOSHIACH NOW!

He’s afraid to write Yechi in English because he knows it will turn away HIS Mikurovim. He doesn’t care about embarrassing us in the eyes of the frum world, because that doesn’t make a difference to HIS bottom line.

Thank You Levi

Rabbi Levi Bamgareten is one of a kind when I was a bochur and unsure of where I was going or what I was doing with my life he got me involved the Mitzvah Tank then with his Chabad House in the Hamptons always encouraging me to do more. All because of him my wife and I are now on the Rebbi’s shlichus now. I know that I am just one of the many Lubavitcher’s (bochurim) with the same story the impact this shliach makes in Crown Heights, New York City, the Hamptons and the world is enormous.

hachloto toivo for yr5770 for the embarrassed..

how’s this? “get a life”…

not everything that is embarrassing to *you* is embarrassing to the Rebbe. many were (and probably still are) embarrassed by the mivtza tfil’n – the Rebbe is not. same applies to yechi. ay, you’re embarrassed? nu, get over it.

Yasher koyach to R’ Baumgarten and hatzlocho rabo.

Yechi on the Tank Endorsed by the Rebbe HIMSELF
Guest
Yechi on the Tank Endorsed by the Rebbe HIMSELF

Are you aware that the Rebbe approved the Yechi for Levi’s Tank. R’ Leibel Groner showed the Rebbe the design with the Yechi and clearly told the Rebbe about the Yechi words on the Tank and the Rebbe approved it.

What type of source? He clearly stated R’ Leibel Groner so why don’t you just og and ask him

its is outside normative and authentic Yiddishkeit to present the Rebbe zy”a is such a manner.
It does nothing to hasten Moshiach’s arrival, it may delay his arrival.
These statements make a mockery of Lubavitch and denegrate the Rebbe.
The whole thing is brainless chitzonius and has no place in Chabad.
I am sure it will bleed on like a an oozing sore until Moshiach arrives.
May HaShem rescue us from this purial nonsense.
Let the world know that messianic madness is a cult no more authentic than jews for j or vodoo in Haiti

Hes not afraid of English. If you noticed it says Moshiach is coming now next to a big pic of The Rebbe. this is one of the best examples of how Yechi can be Boifen Hamiskabel. We just have to get the bug out of our collective …. and realize if the Rebbe encouraged something then its al pi Torah and can be explained properly .

This is the same tank…..just repainted.

TO ALL THOSE CRITISIZERS
Guest
TO ALL THOSE CRITISIZERS

YOU ARE SIMPLY REVEALING TO THE PUBLIC THAT YOU HAVE NO IDEA IN REALITY HOW THE PEOPLE OUT THERE ACCEPT THE MESSAGE,
WHEN PEOPLE WERE FIRST APROAHED TO PUT ON TEFFILLIN IN THE STREET, THERE WERE THOSE FEW DEPRESSED LUBABS THAT WERE ASHAME TO BE PART OF IT, BUT MOST HAPPY LUBAVITCHERS WENT FULL FORCE WITH MIVTSA TEFFILIN, AND LOOK WHERE MIVTSA TEFFILIN HAS GOTTEN BY NOW….

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND WAKE UP.
STOP BEING SHY OF YOUR OWN SHADOW….

just some food for thought....
Guest
just some food for thought....

there are anti mishichists tthat have no idea wat they are talkin about from a torah perercpective like for example”get a life” but there are many famous rabbonoim that do not agree with the whole yechi mishugas for lshaim shomaim reasons….

i wonder why
Guest
i wonder why

Thai did not put a picture of label g on the tank / people give him kvitlach to take to the ohel

to #39
Guest
to #39

sorry the reason why ppl give him kvitalch is bc he goes to the ohel often and if they cant go they give it to him!! are u jealous that he was close to the rebbe? cuz u sure dont sound like u were too close of u can treat one of the rebbes secretary’s w such disrespect

go levi!!!!!!!!!
Guest
go levi!!!!!!!!!

i am a proud member of the baumgarten family. i fully endorse Rabbi Levi Baumgarten. he has touched so many people’s lives, all you “negatives” should be ashamed to say anything!!!

ironically, i did not even notice anything amiss at all. i clicked on the post because i saw 39 comments. i was wondering how many people stop to comment on a new mitzvah tank!!!

bottom line: ITS ONLY AN ISSUE IF YOU MAKE IT AN ISSUE

It's so beautiful
Guest
It's so beautiful

Bs”d
Makes me so happy to be a chosid of teh Rebbe-and my kids are so excited and proud too every time they see it or any other Mitzva Tank. Thank You Rabbi Baumgarten for driving one of the best Mobile Anti Terrorism Units in the USA!
Tizku l’Mitzvos-You will surely be in the front lines when Moshiach comes

wow
Guest
wow

it looks magnificent
may you be blessed with much hatzlacha and satisfaction and may your efforts which is appreciated by all jews bring moshiach speedliy in our days
i respect you very much for sacrificing your personal comfort for the sake of your jewish brethren.
kol hakavod.
