    thankyou and yashar koach for your words. I would vote for you or come to you for guidance gratefully. Thankyou so much.

    AGREED!

    ad mosai… I think we need real true achdus. If the rebbe stressed ahavas yisroel for 43 years…. i think every single community, every single person must stop and put everything aside, it’s not enough that we love and reach out to our communities…but we need to love every lubavitcher in out city, even our ‘competition’ …and even people who have different vies since gimmel tammuz….of course we are confused now but achdus and true commited ahavas yisrael will bring moshaich now! SO CAMPAIGN TRUE ACHDUS AND AHAVAS– lubavitch together as one!

    let’s have achdus!!!

    Yes achdus!
    Guest
    Yes achdus!

    Exactly, achdus must be improved but we need concrete peulos to show that we are b’achdus because just a hachloto, I am afraid will not get us anywhere. Something like the rabbonim getting together and having a hisorrus event, or some regret and apologies from the Shmira to Shomrim or vice versa. Action . We must bend and give in for our OWN GOOD, Hashem Yerachem, I am afraid to pick up my head!!! Please Hashem have rachmonus!!!!

    we all agree on one thing- the Rebbe said “UT UT Kumpt Moshiach” …. if we each do a little bit MORE– of fixing up that ONE broken relationship, whethere it is an old friend, relative, colleague, or even staunch ennemy (ch”v)….just trying to see things from the other person’s point of view…. and expecting and preparing ourselves that at any moment Moshiach CAN come… (and behaving that way)…. iyh soon we will be together with all the beautiful children who were so suddenly torn from their families, The Rebbe, The Holtzbergs……. let us be who the Rebbe believed we… Read more »

    why do we always have to learn the hard way?!

    Yes Yes Yes...
    Guest
    Yes Yes Yes...

    This is what we need. But not just to TALK about achdus and ahavas yisroel, but to actually do it and live it. Personally, it is very easy for me to sit here and type this, not just to ask it of others, but it is easy to tell myself, “Of course I will work harder on my ahavas yisroel”. The challenge comes AFTER we get up, go out, and come into a situation where we can show ahavas yisroel. We need to remember, we need to make it real.
    Moshiach Now!!!

    # 9 said it all

    enough of these deahh zoggers, if YOU think this is the solution and option, you go to Kinkos and go print up a sign with a time and place and I WILL BE there! TALK is not the solutin..u remeber what the rebbe told us a 1000 times HAMASEH HU HA’IKKAR

    do teshuva
    Guest
    do teshuva

    we all need to do teshuva askforgiveness from the ones we wronged, more importantly ask Hashem to forgive us for all the wrong we have done,also we all must STOP talking lashon harah!!!! think good about other and say good things to everyone, also i think it is important to stop having competition with family members and friends when it comes to material things! we all must behave like tne REBBE! and then yih moshiach will come tonights!!!!

    you ARE RIGHT IN WHAT YOu say but the words …. and there the problem begins is very negative and discouraging to others. remember tthe Rebbe always said think good and itt will be good, so also do good and it will be good, each person reading this should try their bes to do only good athings mamash try as hard as they can as if their life depended on it , and this will give a great example to others! remember every small deed coounts!

    Excellent.
    Guest
    Excellent.

    Let’s keep doing more of the same.
    Achdus. Peulos. Confronting Hashemm with our “demands”.
    It always worked.
    So now, more of the same.
    OT OT.
    Ai Maamin.
    It happened before.
    They complained to Hashem. “We cannot take this any moree.”
    But that was only in Auschwitz. So it didn’t work.

    too much!
    Guest
    too much!

    Dear Hashem
    You did it again
    You haven’t even waited
    till we recuperated
    from yesterdays tragedies
    and this morning’s calamities
    weve cried our hearts out
    we have no more words to shout
    youre hitting too hard
    we’re torn apart
    we don’t feel your love-
    just anger from above
    were so helpless and insecure
    you took away the young and pure
    we have no more strength to continue
    our worst nightmares are coming true
    we demand with every fiber of our bodies:
    stop these terrible decrees!
    we can take it no longer
    our desperation is growing stronger
    we’re so afraid and alone
    please, take us back home!

    what is Hashem really trying to tell us, is there really a reason for these sufferings? it is a capara? one cannot even TRY to have a logical answer- no one can truly understand the greatness of the One above, just trust that He knows what He’s doing….

    we should hear of no more tzoros for any yidden, only simchas all around. moshiach now!!!

    #16 you cry out to Hashem but are you – are any of us – doing our part? Machlokes? Violence? Abuse? Lack of ahavas yisroel? Chillul Hashem… until we stop, how can we have taanos on Him. It is too easy to cry out – and you are right – but we must mefashfesh bemmaseinu

    AGREE TO DISAGREE

    I once heard, that when Hashem takes children, its bec. of machlokes. Open your eyes and look around at all the machlokes going on. You dont have to win every argument. AGREE TO DISAGREE. Then you’re both winners. You have your ideas and thoughts about YECHI, your neighbor has his thoughts. So what if he wants to say YECHI and you dont, or vice versa. Let him do what he wants and you do what you want and STOP the fighting. Enough is enough!

    Our doors, our shades, our eyes are shut but what is going on behind closed doors?! The importance of Sholom Bayis does not seem to matter although it is the fact of the matter. Peace in a Jewish home, appreciating the self-sacrifice of each partner, care and concern, begins at home-where no one is looking and no one knows. How can G-d’s presence be in the home, in the community, amongst ourselves, when we don’t let the Shechina in! If we want the Beis Hamikdash Hashlishi then let us begin with peace in our homes, in our own sanctuaries. More… Read more »

    i personally think that the only area where we really got it wrong is the extreme meshichism, it is man made, causing untold damage and MUST stop. i am not naming anybody cause that is not my intention here, it is the actions that are dangerous and doing untold harm.

    WOW.
    Guest
    WOW.

    It is amazing to see an article where FINALLY someone has something positive and productive to say. I hope the leaders of this community take a stand and we collectively come to a conclusion on how we can make this world and community better and stop all the tragedies R’L.

    #28 “…where we really got it wrong…” What would (should) be normal procedure after a Rebbe is gone, is that Ziknei Anash announce “If anyone heard or was told, about what should be done in such a situation, would they please come forward…” This did not (has NOT YET) happen, although there are at least 2 people who were told certain things. So we are left with a leaderless chassiduss of cry-babies who would have left yiddishkeit under Stalin and in the Holocaust. There is no guarantee of reality in the “virtual world” under what to most people has become… Read more »

    Recently I have attended a number of Simchas where members of the family were not there because they do not talk to each other. How can the Rebbe and our Aibeshter bear to see this? If any one of you reading this, is a mother or father ,try to imagine the pain you would Chas vsholom feel if your children would not talk to each other. Our father, our Rebbe, and the father of all Jews., the Aibeshter cannot bear this either. If you , reading this letter are chas vsholom someone in this situation, pick up the phone and… Read more »

    MACHLOKES/MESIRAH IS THE PROBLEM

    The Beis Hamikdosh was destroyed bec. of sinas chinam. Anash is slowly being destroyed likely for the same reason. If we have no leadership – the Rabbanim in CH don’t even get along – who should the youth look up to? How can Anash be b’achdus with the Rabbanim fighting and ALLOWING FIGHTS, MESIRAS, etc?!?!
    The 12 pesukim is a nice idea, but let me tell you people, without AHAVAS CHINOM – it isn’t going to help much.
    IT’S ABOUT TIME PEOPLE PUT THEIR KOVOD ASIDE – lives are being lost, people are SUFFERING!!!

    Recently ,I was sitting at a Simcha and overheard a conversation . One woman was saying,sadly to say she was boasting, that she does not talk to her Mechutanim and should they call before ROsh Hashona to wish them a gut yur she says they as well as everyone in the family I would not take the phone and their good year wishes are answered only by her husband who refuses to stand by her in her fight against her Mechutonim. Her friend asked her what caused this friction and she said in these words “My Mechutonim are not the… Read more »

    you can cry, you can sing, say tehillim, do what you believe is right and good, but never convince yourself you know why someone lives and someone dies. some “good” people die young and painfully . some “bad” people live long and happily. there’s nothing you can do to guarantee another tragedy will not happen, and there’s nothing you can do to guarantee something good will happen. but you can choose to busy yourself with things that you think increase chances one way or another. it will make you feel a little better, feel a little bit more in control.… Read more »

    There is no doubt that these terrible tragedies are not by chance. After Shmuly Chitrik was in a similar accident Tammuz Tof Shin Mem Zayin, (1987), the Rebbe said by the Farbrengen the shabbos after the accident that there the reason the accident happened was due to Machloikes. Every Lubavitcher has the responsibility to end the hatred and machlokes . It is very simple the people that you would never say hello to , you need to say hello to.

    the lesson in this perek should be applied to all Yidden, especially the ones who annoy you, don’t agree with you, or you just don’t like. komocha means mommosh like YOU!!!

    in order to keep SMIRAS HALOSHON we must learn the HALACHOS. it’s not “litvish” or “snaggy”, it’s basic yiddishkiet. we need to stop making excuses and live it. THIS IS HOW WE WILL ACHIEVE ACHDUS AND MERIT REDEMPTION!
