    Merkos, why dont we have such successful shluchim speak to us at the kinus. You have many who have great names, we need tachlis, shluchim who are Mtzliach Poel mamamsh. We are going green, we need EMES in 5770, not just politically connected Shluchim. 5770 the year of Emes

    It was a great video and I really enjoyed it. yet I want to give a little constructive criticism. I hate to sound negative and i know that afterwards everyone will be cursing me out as chasidic fanatic. Never the less, you called this video “What is Chabad” but you never mentioned the Rebbe or showed a picture of him. You didn’t even say that its because of him that you all have this success. Or that chabad is “also” about Rebbe!

    A K’sivah Vachsima Tovah!

    Good question!

    A lot of us born into Chabad , ask the very same question. “What is Chabad” – So much is not recognizable unfamiliar and outright foreign

    This video was obviously made for a fund-raising-dinner and not as a substitute for a chassidishe farbrengen. For that we need an article (op ed anyone?) because there certainly needs to be clarification on the major components of Chabad and their interdependency and priority (which could/would vary for each individual.)

    Yes, I thaught that the Rebbe was connected to Chabad

    It's all in there

    I don’t know why you say that the Rebbe is not mentioned – Rabbi Posner says “Preparing for MOSHIACH”! Ha-rei Rebbe.

    Cutting and editing a video with prehearsed minimal clips is one thing. Speaking at the kinus would be over their heads. Even on the video, their commentary cannot be classified as eloquent.

    I couldn’t agree with you more.

    The question is, was it intentional or not? Either way would tell us a lot about the people who commissioned the video.

    So, you have an opinion. Therefore the entire world MUST, as preparation for Rosh Hashana, read your negative thoughts, k’mo shekosuv, “Exercising free speech is a chiyuv that is doche common sense.” (Common sense? What is that?) I am sure you elected to move away from your comfort zone and dedicate your life to bringing Moshiach, and you’ve similarly inspired so many people.

    how rude #7 erev RH 2 write something like that.

    Shluchim today are not looking 4 the hot pink shirt and yellow tie, who speaks like obama, and has NOTHING to show on his home turf, No Shul, No school, No camp, shluchim want emes, varemkeit, Taporah da placho.

    Look at the Rabbi & rebetzins and you get inspired.

    venizkeh the Rebbe now

    i agree with number 2!

    don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful video. BUT, all you had to add in the begining of the video was a small clip of the rebbe and say that, “R. Menachem…… the lubavitcher rebber sent R. posner to skokie in 1982” instead you have “R. Posner came to skokie in 1982” with out credit to the rebbe!

    T.O.T, it’s a beautiful video! but hey, it COL, you got to be critical!LOL

    The Rebbe not mentioned? SHOCKING!

    Beautiful video – lots of hard work put into it. Very nice pple performing, But please – take the constructive criticism from commenter number 2! I’m sure you didn’t realize it until someone pointed it out, but it’s pretty sad that the Rebbe’s name is not even mentioned! We are just the shluchim! The Rebbe is the one who started this all. The Rebbe is the one who loves every jew so much and thats why we are all out there on shlichus! I really hope your community knows that…

    This video reminds me of what Rashi says regarding “VA’Yovoi Amalek Va’Yilocheim Im Yisroel….” and the moshol Rashi brings about the boy on his fathers’ shoulders….I think these “boys” forgot WHO and WHAT thier “father” IS!!!!!
    Maybe Hashem will have rachmones and they won’t end up like the boy in Rashi’s moshol.

    WITHOUT THE REBBE’S KOACH BEHIND EVERY SINGLE SHLIACH THERE WOULD NOT BE ANY OF THE PROJECTS THEY ARE SUCCESFUL WITH, THEIR ENTIRE SHLICHUS FOR THAT MATTER WOULD NOT HAVE ANY SUCCESS. AND THE LAST SHLIACH TO SPEAK ON THIS OTHERWISE BEAUTIFUL VIDEO CONCLUDED CHABAD HAD A VISION. AM I MISSING SOMETHING? I THOUGHT THE WORD SHLIACH CAME ABOUT BECAUSE THE REBBE HAD VISION!!!! HEAVEN HELP US IF THE SUPPOSEDLY AMAZING SHLUCHIM OF TODAY HAVE FORGOTTEN WHERE THEY CAME FROM, WHERE THEIR STRENGTH AND SUCCESS COMES FROM DAILY.

    the Rebbes message

    the Rebbes message

    The Rebbes message was to spread Yiddishkeit- he was NEVER one to seek Kovod and take credit – I think the Rebbe is happy that these shluchim are fulfilling the shlichus of bringing Yiddin closer to Yiddishkeit- why the negativity? Good people, clearly doing good things. I think that the Rebbe might have more agmas nefesh from the fact that you insulting a fellow Jew than from the fact that he did not get an honorable mention. Did you not know anything the Rebbe is about?

    Mentioning the Rebbe
    Guest
    Mentioning the Rebbe

    It is common courtesy, besides being respectful & appropriate to give credit to the Rebbe for sending Rabbi Posner to Skokie. The Rebbe may not need the Kovod of being mentioned but it is the right thing to do. I think the Baal Shem Tov teaches us about this important mida when he mentions that seeing a body of water should inspire us to tell another that the Baal Shem Tov says water is a Siman Brachah.

    They should have mentioned the rebbe bottom line
