Wow – Rabbi Simcha is an amazing public speaker, I heard him at a Book Festival in CA – he held his own against some of the biggest names in publishing.

You know it all begins with a “kosher” movie and then what is so wrong with a movie about animals or one especially for kids etc. etc. How can anybody in the Rebbe’s Holy Shechuna allow a Jewish Film Festival. What sort of message are we sending to ourselves, our children and to the rest of the world? The message is aloud and clear: “Many in Lubavitch are just confused!”

And a movie about boxing. I hear so many say and what’s wrong with that. He’s a baal teshuva and he is doing good stuff. But why in Crown Heights. Is he really such a role model? Is this what we want our kids to see. Many now think it is even okay to watch him live. Where is all this going to end? Can’t people see a little further than what is happening now? Why don’t they think what will happen to our children.
