    stirring up unecessary controversy

    Creating rifts is NOT OUR WAY. Collive, this is inappropriate and I think you should think about repercussions before posting articles like this.

    That in Lubavitch we keep wasting efforts. Instead of doing things together and utilize each ones talent, we have competition

    I wonder which one is the best?

    why do you call this “controversy”? This is just reporting. Thanks COLlive for doing a great job

    Rabbi Tzinner:

    Someone needs to ask Rabbi Tzinner who does he endorse; many shluchim speak to him on a daily basis

    However, I won’t be surprised if he says that one would be better off not using online calculator at all [imagine you loose Internet connection or are in a place without any or perhaps there is a glitch i the program and you didn’t get the memo]

    You are 100% correct.
    Shame on you, COLLIVE, for sowing Machlokes, especially at such a shaky time, and during Sefirah…
    This is not great reporting, this is creating rifts and competitions…
    (I will not be shocked if you are too cowardly to post my comment.)

    Competition is always better for the consumer.

    I know for a fact that TH has been planning and working on an online calendar for about 7yrs. Actively for 5. I can give you the list of ppl they were in touch with over the years.

    the first time i heard of the calandar idea online was through our own local (crown heights) t. h. organization.

    The one from isreal, although under Rabbi Jacobs who wrote a fabulous book, i would like to say that i never heard of the website for the calandars till now.

    Thank you to our branch of T.H.

    great idea

    I am very impressed with the Taharas Hamishpacha online Calendar. I used to use their hardcopy of the Calendar and the online calendar is similar and easy to follow. (I still copy down into the hardcopy just incase…) Thank you Tahras Hamishpacha and Hatzlacha!!

    Love it!

    I dont know… im still skeptical about using a computer program. how can you trust it 100% and know that it will never mess up?

    Great job – we waited soooo long for this

    Its for backup

    1. If they were doing it for 5 years, I’m glad somone else started. Maybe that’s why they finally finished it. And now it’s free.

    2. TH website looks to be the best and it is approved by Rabbi Chaikin.

    3. As it says on their site, it is only meant for double checking and learning how to do it. There are some opinions that you must actually make the cheshbon yourself.

    Thanks to all 3 of the sites for making it easier for myself to calculate and to get others to keep the laws of Tahras Hamishpacha.

    The only one I would recommend would be Mikvah.org/Calendar I would not trust those other FOR PROFIT sites.. Who knows who they might sell my info to for a profit.

    Although I see there is much controversy over using an online system, I do believe the benefits outweigh a regular calendar.
    I for one have made mistakes with my dates before, and would rather trust an automatic system.
    There are many women who are not as committed to spending much time figuring out the proper dates, and if this can help them be more accurate its worth it!!!

    After having read all the comments for this article, I have to say that I’m a little saddened by the lack of ahavas yisrael displayed here, and on other news sites in the responses on similar articles. I created MikvahMinder with the intent of making Taharas HaMishpacha easy for people to fulfill. What is not mentioned in the article, is that I did do it for personal reasons as well. My wife an I have had nearly 10 (or more) miscarriages, and we learned that a way to get a Bracha for children is to be more exacting with your… Read more »

    Subject: Competition -- Detrimental

    B”H I have just seen this article. I oppose the base assumption suggesting an underlying competition. I supplied an approbation to the http://www.mikvahcalendar.com site, not as a competition to any other holy site. Simply because the developers have consulted me for years during development. And I have examined the site’s capabilities. I have not had time, due to infinite responsibilities, to look over the other sites, those which have asked for my approbation. That is a technical issue of time. All of these sites, from what I have seen, are a tremendous kiddush Hashem. Suggesting there is a competition is… Read more »
