Chabad minhag

The chabad minhag is to point out every year that this isn’t the chabad minhag! 🙂

Lol. I’m just waiting for the comments bashing this minhag since it’s not chabad. If theres a nice segula for parnassa, why not?

Is your question on the Rebbe who writes that it’s not the Chabad minhag?

Huh?

So maybe you should start doing all Peylishe “segulos” now?

not sure what “segulos” is supposed to mean, as most of the stuff they do comes from talmidei habaal shem tov and talmidim of them, but if youre interested in bashing another group of choshuve yidden in klal yisroel thats okay i guess

…the source at hand, but the Rebbe writes that it is not our minhag to do shlissel Challah.

There is a significant school of thought which contends that Goyim bake a cross-shaped “thing” onto a loaf after Easter to show that Yoshke “rose” (like the bread) with the cross being his symbol. Keys then were shaped like a cross. Sometimes they baked the bread into the cross shape, other times they put a cross shaped dough onto the top of their bread. From my standpoint, if you never had such a minhag in your family, don’t do it! If you did, go ask your Rav.

Huh?

Xtian? As in Xtopher Columbus and former NJ Gov Xt Xty? What about the flower Xthemum?

Can we just stop with this stupidity?
