    Why such a negative article?

    Why such a negative article?

    I’m suprised at the tone of the article. Unfortunately much to be desired. As Chasidim of the Rebbe we have been taught to look at everythig in a positive light. Why dwell on the negative when we can dwell on the positive? Chasidus teaches us that when there is “light”, (“kedusha”) there is always the “opposite that is attracted and in this case we get “negative” comments, etc. No Jew deserves what is happening.

    I personally know of many Russian Jewish families who got kosher meat from them for free just to keep them kosher and to stop them from buying treif meat.

    Who can claim they did the same on a weekly basis?

    Yes, the article is nicely written (as others have already commented).

    I am not judging him. The article that he wrote speaks for itself.

    All I am saying is that negativity shouldn’t exist on both sides of the forum.

    Who doesn’t have a critic?
