    chabad was not in full force

    chabad was barely there. most of the people were either modern orthodox or not religious. there were maybe 5 bochurim/yungerleit doing mivtzoim and 2/3 women with candles. that’s not full force for a community the size of melbournes. even if not for mivtzoim, shouldnt chabad be there to show support?

    Wow what an inspiration! A real example of a chassidisher yid. No games just get the mission done… Melbourne is lucky to have you!

    I was at the rally. What a slanted article. Only tefillin? There were more women giving out neshek than there were men putting on tefillin there! The women gave out more than 300 neshek at least! And to ‘chabad was not there in full force’, since when is it a Chabad thing to run to political rallies? We had a very strong presence there and we focused on the most important thing which is to do mivtzoim, and that is much more effective in bringing peace than political speeches.

    It was a beautiful rally, and many men laid teffilin, and many sets of Shabbos candles were distributed.
    (#3, I’m not sure what you’re referring to with “only Tefillin?”. The article puts “Teffilin, Neshek and Tzedoka” in the same sentence…)
    (#1, the article does not say “Chabad was in full force”. It says “Chabad was in force”. Even one Bochur is part of the “force”.)
    Keep up the Mivtzoim!

    Chabad has always been active for the people in Eretz Yisroel. Yes, this is done in large by Mivtzoim and Torah based campaigns, but that doesn’t exclude other measures to help the situation.
    Oh, and when the photographer who sends in the info is also a bochur doing mivtzoim, there will inevitably be a focus on that.
