    Peres: Half Lubav, Half Litvish

    At a banquet saluting Chabad Shluchim in the former Soviet Union, Israeli President Shimon Peres joked, "I'm half Chasid, half Litvak." Many Russian Jewish businessmen participated, among them Levi Leviev and Gennady Bogolubov. Full Story, Photos

    i do not say we should not invite peres to celebrate yiddishkeit but does this come at the expense of the support of chabad chassidim to our shleimus haaretz representative volpe and others who fight equally hard AGAINST these people FOR the jewish people

    first of all, with total respect, i think its time we wrote our names when we make a comment, otherwise, ken men shraiben un achrayus.
    my comment is: its really incredible what the Rebbe’s Army is doing ALL OVER THE WORLD, could we please have SELF RESPECT and not call ourselves “Lubavs”, please call us LUBAVITCHERS. sorry i am being small, but it really bothers me when we denegrate ourselves.
    thank you.

    When Shmeuly Boteach had Rabin is was a disgrace look how things have changed. If Shmeuly’s last name would of been Geza then it would be OK.

    since you mentioned your name proudly, why do you think the Rebbe said many times if it helps not mentioning my name then don’t do so. and why do you think the Alter Rebbe did not have his name associated with his first sefer on Halochoh. Sometimes more is accomplished without mentioning the author so please have more of a limud zechus on yidden. don’t assume people not putting their names is bli achroyois and don’t be such a groiseh deao zoger. I guess if you have enough comments with your name and they start attacking you you will either… Read more »

    the honorable shimon peres, has so much for the jewish people. his life is dedicated to the state of israel eventhough we might not agree with all his policies we cannot disagree with his service to the jewish people.

    is that you Mrs Swerdlow. you cant take the heat already. Then get out of the kitchen. thats why that person signed anonymously dont you get it. by the way my name is Joseph Korf now u happy??? ok now that this name shaded your opinion of my opinions I’ll tell you the truth my name is Boteach. Better??? you see. many times names do cloud the essence of the message. to 11. If Peres supposedly stands for so many principles against Torah and the Rebbe what does all the good have anything to do with it. we are legitimizing… Read more »

    Fact is the rebbe did not like shimon peres. and he gave the rebbe much tzaar. are we missing people to honor? why do we need to honor someone like him!!

    i dont get all these so called beg shluchim who travel around the world giving speaches and all, their job is to stay in their town and do the rebbes shlichus there is always more to do and more mivtzoyim that can be done!!

    no money?

    no money?

    and chabad is crying for cash??? shluchim in the US are in debt schools are closing down , jem wants everyone to send in $180 but chabad in russia is making a milion dollar dinner!! they could of made a regular dinner and used the million dollars to help chabad shluchim in russia and around the world!!

    Kinnus?

    How many times a year do we need to have a kinnus, what if each year the Kinnus officially saluted a different country. Money and shlichus time could then be well spent.

    So called big Shluchim

    So called big Shluchim

    They are “so called” because they are big Shluchim!! And the reason they travel is because…… they have so much to share!!!

    Is it jealousy??? Is it ignorance?? What is it that propels people like yourself to make such pathetic remarks.

    I know Rabbi S.B. personally. And this much i can say! He is an amazing human being selfless and does amazing things. so before you go ahead and make your comments on why S.B Lipskar is at an even please look in the mirror and see yourself. Because i bet you. you cant fill his shoes! or know half the good things that he does for people.

    Peres at the kinnus

    While at first glance, the presence of Peres at a Chabad kinus in Chevron is about as fitting as dovor acher being served there (chas vesholom), we need to look deeper before we criticize what seems like a poor choice of honored guest. Peres was in essence invited to take part in the kedusha of Chevron, and to be honored by the kedusha of Chabad. That is to say, he had kedusha, which we know full well he does not understand, “rubbed in his face”. And then, he admitted to his roots (forget the technicalities; by saying he is a… Read more »

    Did I make a mistake regarding Chevron?

    BS”D I thought I saw pictures of Peres in Chevron with the Chabad shluchim from the CIS as well. If this is incorrect, I apologise for my error. In any case, the idea of Chabad exposing Peres to the kedusha of the Rebbe and having him photographed alongside the CIS shluchim thereby showing that he is honoring them and the kedusha of Chabad still remains. #20 is total nonsense. We all wish we were as bankrupt as Levi Leviev! If there is a next year (meaning that if Moshiach is chas vesholom not here by then) next year’s event will… Read more »

    Sure they have alot to share but they are traveling on tzedaka from hard working people and their job is to do mivtzayim in their own town. the real shluchim are the ones that dont write articles about themself they work 24/7 to do the rebbes shlichus and dont go around the world telling everyone how great they are and how much work they do!!

    I dont understand these comments. There is not one article that does not have one fight in its comments. Adding that you argue anonymously, and nobody gives you credit, just stop.

    Unfortunately you do not have the knowledge about the Rebbe’s directives on having kinusim / conventions. The shluchim do not have to answer to you, or to the people who donate to them, they have to only answer to the Rebbe and the Rebbe has clear directives regarding having conventions and how the conventions should be treated etc.

    IF the Rebbe’s directives have any meaning to you, i would suggest you find out the details from the people to whom the Rebbe gave them before you ever comment on shluchim again!

    why dont you say your name. i will come stand in front of you!! there is nothing wrong with what is written. i give $25,000 a year to shluchim and have the checks to prove it. (i only make $120,000) but i give it to the hard working young couples working 20 hours sleeping 4. and dont have bread on their table because these so called head shluchim are running around the world with millions in thier bank so they could hire the young ones to do all the work without pay!!! the system needs to be changed!!

    The three weeks are coming…we know the beis hamikdash was destroyed because of sinas chinom. What if….. all the commenters on ColLive (of course myself included) made a group hachlata to show more ahavas yisroel in our comments to each other? And we’ll even make it just for these three weeks?

    ok first of all, You are really out of line, B”H you make a decent salary and you give the 10% which doesnt even belong to you away..the way you should, but if you loved your dear shluchim so dearly, you would fargin them a vacation…are you saying that you have no vacation days during the y ear, and that you work literally every waking moment like many shluchim and buisness people do, are you saying you dont fargin a shliach to take some much needed time off, if so, maybe you shouldnt give your $$ to shluchim, when you… Read more »

    Based on what you write a struggling Shliach who doesn’t have money to put food on their table for themselves and their children is dedicated balev vanefesh to the Rebbe but those shluchim who dare to pay their bills, take a vacation or drive a decent car are somehow not fulfilling their shlichus!!!! My father drove a broken down toyota corolla that would or would not start on any given day. He didn’t have $$ for groceries. Now BH he pays his bills and helps other shluchim who cant pay there’s. Is he less dedicated to the Rebbe because now… Read more »
