    BH. A child says “this is my home” so does everyone in the family say “this my home”, WE ARE ONE FAMILY BH.

    Wooow now I see clearly how biased collive is...

    I love how you make as if ur putting an unbiased article about the judge and then basically take sides with aguch & merkos etc… You slyly call one side representing chabad and the other is just the “meshichistim”. Since when did did one side become the sole representation of chabad. I think last i checked we are all chabad chassidim of the rebbe, wether we outwardly show our belief in him as moshiach or some of us are just too ashamed at the moment to proclaim the belief we know inside to be true. And your comment at the… Read more »

    This case is going on for years

    This is going on for years. The fight of rabbi yehudah krinsky against the gabboim over ownership of 770. When they get a judges decision i hope whoever wins will take some responsibility for the upkeep of 770!

    It is all of our home.
    But there is still the organizations the Rebbe made in charge.

    You are WRONG!! If some of those members step foot into 770, they will get beaten! and probably hospitalized. Do you call that Chassidim? I was a counselor years ago for Kinnus Tzierai Hashluchim. When we walked into 770, and for some of these kids it was their first time! we go pelted with Seforim, Chumoshim etc. the kids were at a loss and we just stood as a barrier between those Tzfatim so the kids shouldn’t get hurt. It’s not just “if we outwardly show our belief in him as moshiach or not” they have a different belief! Are… Read more »

    We can’t go to 770 for fear of being attacked by certain forces affiliated not with the Rebbe but with violence.
    I don’t know how old you are, but there was a coup in 770 years ago that made it dangerous for certain people to enter, even in the women shul.

    Once the case is done, 770 will be allowed to expand the way the Rebbe wants it. The keilim are ready.

    BS”D I side with the Gabboim but I agree with the comments that it is not safe for the other side to enter 770
    and I saw R’ Krinsky and/or R’ Shemtov pelted with eggs in a disgusting display

    labeling is biased

    I am an American raised lubavitchwe and used to think that tzfatun are the Talibani terrorists….. based on what I was being told. that all changed when I married a “tzfati” and we hosted many farbrengens in our home f or tzfatim. I saw first hand how nice they farbreng, they don’t get drunk, and they clean up after themselves.

    9 is completely correct and I stand firmly with his emesdike beliefs. Furthermore, its a chilul shaim lubavitch and issur from the Torah for these 2o something year old tzfatim to be mistreating the Rebbe’s secretary and the Rebbe’s appointed chairman of aguch

    Whaaat?

    Will chassidim please be chassidim? Let’s say חסידים איין משפחה with pride!
    It’s so not about the tzfatis, mishichistim whatever – it’s about being connected to the Rebbe, and the only way to do that is to have Ahavas yisroel.

    Judging by your spelling and grammar (or the lack of it), it seems that you’re not really an American. For example, an American wouldn’t write ‘talibani’. It’s plain ‘Taliban’. Also, your experience with Tzfatim doesn’t prove much even if it happened, because not every Tzfati is a radical terrorist. There are more moderate ones as well, who only financially support terror, but won’t engage in acts of violence themselves.

    first of all the “tzfatim” aren’t the only ones who are meshichist, the gabboim never did anything or attack anyone.
    i have also seen people who aren’t tzfatim attacking other chassidim.
    the point is that everyone should be (and behave like) a chossid and do what the Rebbe wants whether meshichist or not.

    Shame that this is what Lubavitch has come to today!

    Its amazing how in Lubavitch theres always an abundant amount of $$ for lawyers and courtcases to fight fellow yidden. While there are so many families in anash and shluchim struggling, and so many children that lost a parent this year rachmana litzlon, but instead of putting our $ to good causes and helping our own fellow chassidim and shluchim the $ is being WASTED time and again in court… For some reason its always the same few big names in Lubavitch going to court and then appealing time and again bc they cant seem to face the fact that… Read more »

    24 connecting to the Rebbe

    Also means that when the Rebbe says everything chabad should be controlled by Aguch, you follow the Rebbe and not hand it over to some other group. You can’t just be about love and ignore everything else the Rebbe stands for. I have ahavas yisroel for those who use that eruv but that doesn’t mean they are right

    1. I don’t know who is right and who is wrong. Chances are both are right and wring to some degree. But that is hardly the issue here. The saddest thing is that 99% of the community suffer because of this. The average person in CH struggles to pay bills, especially tuition bills. And here we have millions of dollars wasted on legal fees? 2. This is a Chillul Hashem of the first order on so many levels. 3. Wasn’t there a fight about the ownership of 770 back in the 1980’s and the Rebbe said that it costs dearly?… Read more »

    “Once the case is done, 770 will be allowed to expand the way the Rebbe wants it. The keilim are ready”.

    Baloney! If the “keilim” (and I assume this means the funds) are ready, why can’t these “groiseh askanim” use their “keilim” to make peace and compromise for the good of Lubavitch?

    Either, it is beyond their ability, and they are just “empty vessels” (“Keilim Reikanim”) spouting off

    Let the loudmouths, on each side, have a seat at the table (as the Rebbe said) but let the more responsible leaders, utilize their stature for the betterment of the community.

    Aguch and normal meshichistim should unite against the crazy meshichistim

    If Aguch and normal meshichistim unite against the crazy meshichistim the ones who give out dollars, kos shel broch and are violent then there is hope for 770.

    There SHOULD be “Yechi” in 770 as the Rebbe himself encouraged it. (End of story)

    But there should absolutely be no violence and the craziness aside from that. they need to be thrown out from there!!!!

    As Chasidim and Yirei Shomayim, dose it not behove us to adjudicate all our differences by the laws of the holy Torah, and when the judge decides the case is that the ownership we should accept, what ever happened to Darkei Hachasidus
