    All I hear is the Orthodox Union O-U and the Star K speaking very respectfully of each others organizations. Dont know why everyone has to get worked up and start with name calling only because these organizations and Yiddishkeit in general have different views from one another.
    This story mostly blew up ONLY in the chabad world because as usual lubavitchers have to take everything as a personal attack against them.
    Everyone has their chumros and stringencies thats all it is!

    Thank you

    Thank you

    so beautiful to hear Rabbi Weinfeld tell the story.
    It shows how every Jew regardless of his Torah knowledge, responds to “neshama verter” neshama “words”
    “words from the heart enter the heart”

    So nice that Rabbi Lichtenstein discusses this so respectfully, what a gift.

    Who relies on a psak halcha from a “rov” who does not keep a beard? Why would anyone listen to a word from a rov who flagrantly violates issurei d’oraisa? Hamaaseh hu haiker

    The real reason they say it’s not good is because Lubavitch was the one to solve this sensitive issue.

    The reason they gave: They dont think its shayich for a non observant jew to sell his chometz while still keeping his store open – against everything we in chabad belive.

    Why they are wrong: In this case the owner sold the company, so even if he works, it’s not his.

    Besides the fact that we belive that he does really want to sell his chometz.

    There is an answer from the rebbe that backs up this mechira that it is 100% good.

    He didn’t really want to sell his business, if someone would have offered to buy it right then and there he most likely would have refused. What does beard have to do with any of this? This rabbi is a much bigger talmid chachom than you’ll ever be so don’t insult him based on your personal intimidation. As far as star k “hating” lubavitch, the same can be said regarding lubavitchers hating star k which is why they feel the need to attack them nonstop. How about attacking the satmar crc for a change? They were just as publicly against… Read more »

    Some comments i wrote on a group. Just beforehand, # 5 your comment is so full of Am Ha’arutzus, one does not know where to begin, you clearly don’t know how the Mechira works. ב”ה לאחר ששמעתי כל האריכות רציתי להעילות איזה הערות קטנות. א. מעניין שרב וויינפעלד טוען שבאמת עושים אותה סוג מכירה לכמה מקומות אחרים כל שנה, והחידוש כאן הוא רק על כל הdrama עד שעשו את זה. ב. יש כאן כמה דברים מעניינים. 1. מביא שרב בעלסקי רצה לטעון פשט אחרת בתוך דברי רב משה (הגם שהלינק של האוצר החכמה מביאים מרב בעלסקי לא כך). 2. הרבה… Read more »

    Your comment made my blood boil. To think that you are holier than thou and that thousands or frumme yidden are not reliable because their hashkafa is different from yours. It’s people like you who make me lose respect for the beard and what it stands for.

    It is assur to cut, shave or trim the beard. Nothing to do with holier-than. Why would you rely on a rov who clearly doesn’t keep halocho? And there aren’t “different opinions” on this. Look at Moishe Weiner’s sefer. Nobody is matir this and rabbonim, einei ho’eido are supposed to lead by example. Period. You can get as mad as you want, but your opinion doesn’t particularly matter here.

    So you cant accept other opinions that you need to resort to name calling and the like. Best defense is attack isnt it? Just accept the fact that you arent the only person on earth. There there are 70 panim latorah not just chabad panim latorah.

    they say that only this year did the problem arise while in the podcast we hear that their was an employee that was working there for years and that Kashrus agencies were trying numerous amount of times to get him to sell his chometz?
