I didnt know there were still Lubavitchers who stand up for the Rebbe’s agenda. I thought mihu yehudi is not important when it comes to money. nice to see I am wrong.

Schochat Power!!!

Bit of a misstep.

R’ Shochat generally speaks well, but when he said, “…the ruling…essentially suggesting…that G-d is a racist, and that doesn’t wash!” he walked into what I see as a minefield. Of course Gd is a racist, from a Jewish perspective. Unless his opponents are incredibly daft, they’ll pick up that ball he threw at them and run with it.

No, G-d is is not a racist , anyone can convert to judaisim and become part of the “chosen nation”.

G-d a racist? you don’t know what you are talking about!! He may be an elitist, but a compassionate one, if you you know the laws of the Torah. Ve’ohavto ess ha’ger, doesn’t sound racist to me.

so impressive

it’s unusual to see such leadership, clarity and conviction.
a real role-model for standing up for Yiddishkeit even when it’s incredibly unpopular and risky. it’s awe-inspiring.

Typical Shochet. Not nispoel, says what has to be said and does what has to be done. Not afraid of his own shadow of what others will say or how it might impact on his own Balabatim. Truth has to be fought for truths sake. Such Rabbbis are a rare breed these days.

i listened to the program and been following story closely. shochat provided answers that even a seasoned politician couldn’t argue with. there are no holes in truth!
good luck for the future!
