    he has agreed to come farbreng on the condition that he leave at 9:15 – 9:30 in order for him to be home at 10:00.

    in other words if you want to hear him farbreng then remember that 8:00 means 8:00 real time, NOT 8:00 chabad time (8:30-8:45)

    It would only be right to mention the ones who first went to meet Rabbi Garfinkel, and caused others to visit him as well, and also interview him about Otvotzk etc. published in the Kfar Chabad and collive.
    Thank you Rabbi Moshe Heber, Rabbi Lazer Avtzon, and Rabbi Uri Ivry. Tovo Aleichem Brocho!

    It would be irght for those attention seekers to realise that they were not the only oones to have visited and been in touch with him. There were many of his other alumni students that visited and called him throughout and have held him with tremendous esteem always. Amazingly of most of my teachers from all the years at ULY (20 some years) he and ybl’c Rabbi Barnetzky a’h were certainly from the top. Some of the others wouldn’t even desreve a shiva visit. They taught with such love whilst the others besides for not even being qualified teachers many… Read more »

    I posted this article without mentionimg anyones name, who arranged it and who visited him. He is coming for the farbrengen and is the featured speaker, not for scoring points.

    Why did things that have nothing to do with the farbrengen have to be added?
    I will sign my name

    #3 is asking I good question. We know he was a teacher in OP – but why wasn’t he ever by the Rebbe – like the other Chassidim from Otvotzk Poland? Not by Farbrebgen, not Shabbos? Not Yom Tov?

    I remember very vividly when he used to visit Yeshivas Achei Tmimim (in the 1950’s & 60’s ) in Worcester, Mass. He was sent , I think, b’shlichus of the Rashag to test all the children in all the classes and to bring back to the Rashag a detailed written report. I think he must have visited the other Yeshivos Achei Tmimim as well.
    If I’m not mistaken, the reports were given into the Rebbe as well.

    what a ridiculous, inappropriate question.
    who do you think you are (who ever you are)?

    what are you? some kind of need to know all judge of other peoples lives?
    what about respect, common decency, mentchlechkeit….
    I don’t even know who Rabbi Garfinkle is and your questions stand out as totally inapropriate.

    To #3 and #10, go back and learn Pirkei Avos starting with Al Tadin es Chavercha , let alone someone who is on a much higher level than you can ever dream of.

    that was what they announced when they called my zaidee up to my bar-mitzva parsha he also has for many years been a chazzan for his congregation. My grandfather is b”h zoche to have us grandsons studying to torah in eretz yisroel. even though he has not been capable of reading sefforim for the past ten years- even if I call him now- the first question he asks me- what masechet am I up to. I would start with saying what the masechet- he would ask what daf- then what amud- and without me saying a thing- would “be’al peh”… Read more »
