    its very nice that this young man received this prestigious award..but, why are we publicising that he learned in oholei torah? he doesnt have a beard and must we keep showing our impressionable children that money is everything?

    huh?!
    Guest
    huh?!

    whats the diffrence how he looks the main thing is he is a proud jew a supporter of jewish instututions and acyually it also shows that even some one who had learned in religius schools with out going to collage can also be sucsessfull and use ot his abilitys for the right things!!!!!!!!!!!

    That guy gives to way more organizations than the 3 mentioned. He gives charity all over the world. We have never met a more charitable person in our lives. And his suit is beautiful. I wouldnt lecture him on fashion.

    in response to your comment, there is nothing wrong with this article and the impression it gives to lubavitch boys. teaching lubavitch boys that they can actually become successful and make a living is not a bad thing…it’s funny how a person is judged based on whether they have a beard or not…how sad. There are plenty of men with beards who do not measure up to this man’s good deeds.

    waht r u doing

    i agree
    enough showing that the most important thing is money
    need we co0nstantly show our children – not just here but everywhere that lubavitch honors and respects those with monew???
    where have our values gone?
    we seem to celebrate all of our ppl that put yidishkiet and chassidishkiet on the back burner
    sseems that we respect the wrong ppl
    what have we come to?

    do you have to show your impressionable children that you are a bored soul that has nothing better to do than insult a lubavitcher in public forum?! go use your time contructively by posting on some goyisher website dedicated to lashon hara. Explain to you children the importance of scouting the web for opportunities to insult lubavitvhers in a place where their entire friends and family can see. In the meantime, the rest of us will be proud of a lubavitcher that is successful, has a heart of gold, and is a huge baal tzedaka.

    The posts on this board are an example of why Lubavitch today has so many problems and issues. These pathetic people use this message board as a means to insult a fine individual, a man who gives and gives and gives some more and instead of honoring him and being proud, they write ridiculous things about his “lack of beard”? If only these people with the time on their hands to write such garbage were out there doing the good that David Schottenstein is doing. I can personally say I have benefited from him. My Chabad House was to be… Read more »

    no beard- it is a problem

    if you people had any clue about what the rebbe and our previous rebbes said about how essential and important is is not to touch one’s beard, you would perhaps be sensitive to tha fact that some of our adolescent boys arre reading this and getting a message that not ideal.
    an article like this minus the picture would have been preferred.

    the comments on this article are truly sad. if anyone knew some of the amazing things that Dovid Schottenstein does that people don’t know about they would think twice before writing such horrible, close-minded things. i cannot believe that there are lubavitchers who are judging a person by how they look, not by the good deeds they do. how can lubavitch reach out and fundraise to people who don’t know a thing about yiddishkeit, when they are so ungrateful to the chessed of another lubavitcher next to them? there are many people in crown heights with long beards who haven’t… Read more »

    Let’s hope that by being positive and focusing on the strengths each of us contributes to the whole, Hashem will judge us all favorably.

    We are all works in progress. No individual can do it all. Focusing on the positive and encouraging each other we can hopefully strive to reach our full potential.

    i wonder if the people who are mad for posting this article because of chassidishe reasons, go on mivtsoim every friday?
    and i wonder if the people who are defending him, care and see a beard as an essential thing?

    as for me (someone who see’s the beard as an essential thing) even if “b’shita” i dont agree with posting this article i would never go out of my way and publicly say something about somebody who “taake” help the rebbe’s “mosdos”

    in any case, moshiach now!

    To those people who rationalize about the lack of a beard,its about time you wake up and see what the world has come to,and how open everything is to all children-religeous or not,and its you,the narrow minded lubavitcher’s who are living in denial by ignoring the fact your kids and grandchildren are slowly going off one by one or not as MEKUSHAR as you say. So by all means,continue to condemn your kids and others as you see fit,just remember that every time you post a comment or write an article or spread a horrible rumor,there are always teenagers,girls or… Read more »

    What is important to us ?
    Guest
    What is important to us ?

    All those that are insulted about the beard comments are missing the point. The emphasis is that this is not what we as Lubavitchers should be celebrating. I don’t know who he is and I’m sure he is a big Baal Tzedokah. If the article would read Chabad MEKUROV wins Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award, I don’t think you would see those comments. We are upset with the Editor for celebrating the fact that an Oholei Torah Bochur “made it” in the fashion industry, not with Mr. Shottenstein. It’s not the first time that articles like this… Read more »

    why should we say he is from OT?

    bc he did
    bc we dont hide emes
    bc this is the big wide world
    we all need to make choices in this big wide world, there’s no escape.
    the comment, why say he went to OT….gives our children the wrong message…reminds of the post cereal boxes – if you buy them in BPark – a picture of the box depicting an American family – father mother, children – they put duct tape over the picture – PLEEEEEZ

    Ladies and gentlemen! Time to wake up and take care of your own families. Walking on Kingston Av has been the most traumatic sight in the last many years. Some are interpreting the success of some the wrong way. What message the Crown Heights Tsinius sent tp those who are trying to become more religious. Everything goes lately. Time to leash out some type of supervision. Sadly enough, they wear a sheitl, suppose that does it….

    Money Is Everything

    Money is the most important thing. If you think its chasidish to have a ton of kids with no money than you are mistaken.First you have to have money then you can afford to be chasidish with a bunch of kids and learn all day. Its more of a hilel hashem to live off programs and gemachs in the community even if you are learning all day then it is to be a frum jew who trims their beard. Go David!

    David has given way more tzedakah than anyone can imagine. It is not only the big places that we all know he supports, but also the individual people and centers he has helped… I know first hand that he not only gives, but also will follow up to make sure that the people are taken care of in the future. He is someone we should all learn from. He is the most generous person and really cares to help. He should be blessed with the most success and his business should only continue to grow. If anyone deserves it –… Read more »

    he may be a nice man, but to identify a shaven man as a lubavitcher, as the article does, is a problem!
