I wouldn;t want Immanuel to be my critic either! 🙂

But I hear Immanuel is pro-Rambam. (At least it seems so from the video.)

Thank you

Thank you

Thank You for producing this series. Thoughtful, interesting video lectures on historic figures and their works by our own modern day scholars.

Thank You to whomever recorded this, and thank you Rabbi Schochet for agreeing to produce this.

Don’t be so touchy. He’s Zaidy to you. That’s all that matters to you.

Go, Zaidy, you are absolutely correct. If people can’t show a little bit of Derech Eretz, it just shows how shallow they are. (These people should look at what the gemoro Sanhedrin says about people who don’t show proper kovod to Talmidei Chachomom.)

To Rabbi Shochet: words can not begin to describe the great service you are providing to yidden all over. Your presentation is not only informative and entertaining, but I am (and others are) being educated.

It’s cool that y’all are proud of your Zeide and all that, but honestly, he’s not just your grampa. He’s a relatively famous public figure. Nobody is diminishing his respect by calling him Immanuel. All the great mashpiim were known by their first names. Actually, if anyone is making the rabbi look small, it’s you by posting comments on COL that are more appropriate for a family blog or Facebook.

Am I crazy or is anyone else with me on this?

You are not (presumably) crazy, but I am definitely NOT with you. Had Rabbi Schochet wanted to, he could have been counted among the “Gedolim” in the Yeshivishe Velt. He is a world class Talmis Chochom, and just because he chose relative obscurity, the rest of us do not have license to refer to him without the proper derech eretz. No matter what the prevailing culture is (“All the great mashpiim were known by their first names”), being mezalzel in the kavod of a Talmis Chochom is a harsh thing. As far as the einiklach are concerned, let ’em have… Read more »
