Can someone please tell me what's the original problem between the Rabbanim?
Guest
Can someone please tell me what's the original problem between the Rabbanim?

I read Meir Schreiber’s letter (boy he seems like a nice guy, never knew him before), for years I wanted to know – what happened betwen the “2 Rabbanim” and what does he mean that the “Vaad didn’t make an anevironment for them to work together…” Does this have anything to do with “Yechi.” Really, I have no clue and it’s kinda hard to make decisions on current elections without knowing what seems to be obvious to everyone else. Thanks in advance

this whole "only new guys" campaign is a ploy
Guest
this whole "only new guys" campaign is a ploy

don’t be fooled by the “new guy’s ONLY” campaign, its just an election tactic to get one side in.
everyone that is running has an opinion and a side, some more and some less.

i think it is important to point out that there is one candidate, Michoel Chazan who wants to work on tznius-this is a serious topic, people aren’t dressing or acting properly,

NEW people? The members in this Vaad ARE new people.
Guest
NEW people? The members in this Vaad ARE new people.

Bar Reb Chanina Sperlin (who is an Asken with a great heart); all the members ARE new people, working in the Vaad for the past year.

This NEW Vaad speaks with one voice and all have asked for the participation of Reb Chanina.

This NEW Vaad moved mountains and brought the Shchuna to this point of POSSIBLE sholom.

We must give this NEW Vaad the opportunity to forge ahead; they have a NEW track record to run on.

This NEW vaad (of the past ywear), will bring Crown Heights back to it’s OLD glory.

Tznius?
Guest
Tznius?

I believe that Tznius of the mouth is the first and most important part of Tznius. so i would advise candidates that before they lecture us on Tznius, they should work on himself to improve on Tznius and watch his mouth before he attacks and (attempts to) embarrass another Jew in public.
And while on the topic of Achdus, I wonder how anyone thinks that he will foster Achdus by attacking others in public?
An apology is order, including to Rabbi Osdoba. And teshuva is always accepted

Sorry to say this, but the ‘New Crown Heights” planes are imposable to accomplish. The people who put them together a asked them to run are people that don’t want the Psak to go into action The current Vaad said something last which seemed imposable but it worked because the Rov who was stopping the election realized that he had no hope besides to go to Bais Den so he agreed. Now the current Vaad is saying something that both sides could do, but to many and a lot of others the other side is the to make sure that… Read more »

They dont attack other people as their campaign, even though THEY SAID NO DIRT, what a shame. How can you talk achdus and show sinah?! It is not about power, it is about leading the community so start showing your worth at that.

The cnadidates i am voting for have shown they have one goal – OUR GOALS.

AND PLEASE DONT JUST VOTE FOR ONE PERSON, YOU MUST VOTE FOR AT LEAST 3 EVERYONE – OR IT WONT COUNT.

Anyone think it’s interesting that women can not vote in these elections? Here we have activists who are trying involve people from all parts of the community, but half of its members do not have a say at all…

Wrong Priorities
Guest
Wrong Priorities

One candidate after the next stands up to talk about how they are going to facilitate access to welfare programs, yet not one of them talks about how they are going to create an environment in which future generations will not have to rely on the government for handouts. It’s almost as if welfare has become so institutionalized, these candidates are afraid to speak the truth. The US government, along with most state governments are quickly going broke, and unless a cultural of self-reliance is promoted, the problems of the current generation will pale in comparison to the problems of… Read more »

Same thing different name.

To the people with out experience, they speak of lofty possibly unattainable goals. They do not know what awaits them.
To the people with experience (perhaps besides Chazan who was involved in getting some programs set up) what did any of them do?

Every time there is a new board there is a new CEO in the council. How can you get anything done when you change CEOs that often?

Current Vaad Gets my Vote

The current Vaad has accomplished an incredible amount in a really short time. I keep out of politics, but I’ll never forget (as many pple seemed to have) the toxic environment in our community just a short year ago. The Vaad has managed to completely change the nature of the conversation. Because they refuse to stoop to the level their opponents have operated on for years, our entire community dialogue is elevated. Now all the opposition can think of to campaign on is “change.” As if we are little children who need a shiny new toy every year. For this,… Read more »

weird head coverings , beards. etc

I think that even though the capacity of leading and doing a good job is the most important thing in an election, nevertheless, those positions should be filled by people that are committed Chasidim, so weird colored yarmulkes, hats, and not having the minimal commitment to have a normal growing beard, for example should be an automatic disqualifier. To understand what I’m saying take it to an extreme: for example if most of the electorate would not be frum or somewhere in between, there is a big chance that the vaad hakohol would completely stop being the vaad hakohol that… Read more »

Proof? It’s easy to blame it on the Rebbe…
The reason they don’t have women vote is because it’s easier to do what’s always been done instead of examining why it had ever been that way at all…

I tracked him down to South Africa where he is for Shabos. He vehemently denied the quotes Schreiber attributes to him and said he told Schreiber the exact opposite! You can either try to reach him in Johannesburgh or ask his brother Moshe Meir or his son-in-law Shlomy Sternberg.
