A wonderful article

A wonderful article

I particularly enjoyed the fact that Rabbi Krinsky answered every question about the Rebbe. There was no Yeshus. A true Chosid and true humbleness!

Contrary to the Rebbe's will????
Guest
Contrary to the Rebbe's will????

So when the Rebbe said ” Hegah z’man geualasainu” or that the nasi of the dor is the Moshiach of the dor. Or that the mem of Meyad stands for Moshiach “Menachem sh’moi. when he encouraged the singing of YECHI ETC. ETC. I guess it was our imagination (B”H for videos)

The man means well

The man means well

But not versed in the sichos as reb yoel who openly admits that according to chasidus and sichos 51-52 that the rebbe is THE moshiach and that it’s only a matter of nichseh aka nisayon stage that we are in right now just before. The process of geula is completed!

Btw see the countless sources predicting the unfolding process of geula

R.shlomo majesky compiled all the original sources in 1 booklet

Learn = see for yourself why the rebbe begged us all to learn inyonei moshiach DAILY as a means to open our eyes

nice article, a little more about the rebbes tzidkus would have been nice though

everyone is missing the point
Guest
everyone is missing the point

1. The Rebbe wrote in a tzetil: there is no inyan of searching Moshiach identity (meaning: who he will be is not important, but rather how are we bringing him closer)

2. The younger ones won’t remember but the Rebbe once threatened to leave a farbrengen in 770 when Rabbi SB Wolpo (or was it Dovid Nachshon) started singing moshiach

was woundering?
Guest
was woundering?

any ideas why rabbi krinsky didnt call 911??? if he saw hatzolah was taking long?????

Now you can understand
Guest
Now you can understand

why the Rebbe favored Yudel over the Rest like every one knows that by Matzos 5751 he gave yudel a Pack of matzos saying “far gantz mazkirus”.

this is a man who had a few hour interview and barely said a word about himself only spoke about the Rebbe. Think about it the thing he has is the Shlichus/Shluchim and sincerly says (cause its true) that this is NOT the Rebbes main thing b/c every thing to the rebbe was dear not trying to promote him self…

its been a long time coming
Guest
its been a long time coming

thank you rabbi krinsky. i finally have something to show my kids that they can be proud of when they are surrounded with so much garbage that is very special. you have done us all proud.

Like always, Reb Yudel represents Lubavitch and the Rebbe in the most humble an dignified way,

No wonder why he was chosen as a very young man, to join each and every one of the Rebbe’s institutions, with people many years his senior, and why out of all the chasidim in the world, the Rebbe chose him to be the sole executor of his will. He trusted him. Simply.

His few detractors (from “within” of course!) were simply jealous. But that was the Rebbe’s choise, not his or ours, his chasidim.

A little bit more on the open miricles daily

Ikar choser min hasefer!!!

The oilomishe-velt needs to hear about the supernatural side to reallize that it’s a “moshe” not just another gadol!!

Why avoid portraying the rebbe’s full gadlis as a Baal mofes and Baal ruach hakodesh??

That would surely = a kidush Shem lubavitch!!

It’ll explain the exeptional reverence afforded to the Rebbeh as different from other “gidolim”

This article is a must-read for anyone who is a true Lubavitcher. This is our heritage and this chassid is one for us to emulate.

“His few detractors (from “within” of course!) were simply jealous.”
So sad that there has to be internal dissension and with a peace-loving man like Rabbi Krinsky!!! What a pity! What a waste! People stand together and then you stand strong. Line yourself up with Rabbi Krinsky-dignity, honor, refinement, Chassidishkeit,, etc.

Ryk is no less a believer in sichos nun alef nun beis than the biggest mishichist, he is merly semsible enough to understand that the media loooves to misrepresent and vilify orthodox as cooooks and radical

Guest
19 is spot on

No chossid doubts his Rebbe’s words.

All chasidim who payed attention to the sichos over the yearsvnoticed the clear shift in policy from tkufa to tkufa

Starting with the rebbe’s strong resistance of the nesius itself at first

Thank you

Thank you

This is a very precious article. R’ Krinsky thank you for your continued dedication to the Rebbe.

To look at this article in a positive light it will pacify the litvacks and get them off are backs .And balance out the ultra mishichist activists.

too much self serving
Guest
too much self serving

The parts about the Rebbe’s davenning, anivus, etc. were great. However, he is very misleading about his relationship with the Rebbe. Without going into the internal politics in mazkirus, his role was not so clear cut as he makes it. Also, he was not with the Rebbe in the Ohel as he claims. He sat in the car most of the time, reading and writing. He implied that he was standing next to the Rebbe at the Ohel, when in reality, nobody was with him and krinsky sat in his car. After shkiah, he would go in every 10-15 minutes… Read more »

Because of Krinsky’s humility, many in Lubavitch have believed that he was “merely” a driver. He never before spoke about how the Rebbe chose him as his representative in the court case and even now did not mention how in all money matters the Rebbe made sure that Krinsky took care of it.
Krinsky was not seen by davening near the Rebbe and so got the reputation as having a lesser connection than the others, when in fact the opposite was the cases, although kulam ahuvim, kulam berurim.

how dare you? and you cover up by saying “just woundering”.

don't agree
Guest

sorry 23 but you are way off the mark. what shines through the whole article is the humility, the selflessness of r’ krinsky that is quite the opposite of self-serving. if we served hashem the same way he served the rebbe we’d be doing pretty well!

What did the Rebbe say?
Guest
What did the Rebbe say?

I’m very curious what the rebbe said to him on the last visit that he says he cannot repeat. Why can he not disclose it if it was so momentous?

momentous
Guest
momentous

He cannot disclose because the Rebbe spoke to him about indvidual shluchim, and that is confidential.

The article is a small masterpiece. Kudos to the interviewer as well as to the interviewee.

Ich halt em far zich

The following episode told publicly by Rabbi Dovid Schochet in Toronto, gives in great insight into Rabbi Krinsky’s relationship with the Rebbe.

Rabbi Shochet said that when he was being sent by the Rebbe to Toronto on his shlichus, he asked the Rebbe in Yechidus if Rabbi Krinsky could join him there (after his wedding) and work together with him.

The Rebbe told him: Ich halt em far zich, I am holding him for myself.

The rest is commentary.
