Sad but he is right. There were way over the “thousand” that you quote and very few lubavtichers.
There were families from Boro Park that participated for a man they do not know.
i was there. were you?

June 22, 2010 4:18 pm

I don’t get it. Why don’t they start HUGE campaigns against the live lobster and shrip eateries??? That is total animal cruelty! What wicked wicked people!

I JUST DECIDED TO TRY TO GET PETA’S ADDRESS SO THAT I COULD TELL THEM WHAT I WISH THEM ETC. AND THIS IS WHAT I FOUND. PERHAPS RUBASHKIN’S LAWYERS SHOULD HAVE A LOOK AT THIS. June 22, 2010 Exclusive: PETA’s Pet Killing Program Set a New Record in 2009 Public Records: PETA Found Adoptive Homes for Just 1 out of 300 Animals Animal lovers worldwide now have access to more than a decade’s worth of proof that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kills thousands of defenseless pets at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters.

There were a thousand people, yet you say only a handful of Lubavitchers? What are you basing it on? You saw the whole crowd? Maybe where you were standing there was only a handful of Lubavitchers.

June 22, 2010 2:06 pm

Don’t give up

Getzel said last night at the end of the rally to support his father quoting from last posuk of todays Chumash:

Balaam said to Balak, “Behold I have come to you, do I have any power to say anything? The word God puts into my mouth-that I will speak.”

I am still davening that even now Judge Reade can give over a different sentence — Hashem controls the word — he can make her say anything her wants.

June 22, 2010 9:43 am

The do gooder liberal jewish media such as the forward and the do gooder liberal jewish groups such as magen tzedek, have played a similar role in this case, as the one the cappos and the judenratt played in Nazi Germany. The self destructive capablities of the jewish community are simply astounding. Had it not been for the misplaced zeal to hound the rubashkin family conducted by a very unholy alliance of secular Liberal Jews together with a clearly antisemitic leaning prosecution, judge and jury, combined with the unions, Peta, and the state and federal government, the reality on the… Read more »

Shame on you CH
June 22, 2010 8:05 am

The bus from Crown Heights to this rally was almost EMPTY.
Shame on you. I was there.

WEas there
June 22, 2010 7:37 am

It was just unbelievable to see the amount of people coming out to support Sholom Mordechai. It was nice to see Rabbi Osdoba & Rabbi Segel sitting on the Dais with all the other Rabbonim & Rabbi Lipa Brennan from the Pidyon Shivuyim Vaad.

rechanneling funds
June 22, 2010 2:18 am

perhaps everyone could spread the word to their kehilla that until rubashkin is freed all Jewish contributions to local, national and federal elections will be rechanneled to the Rubashkin fund.

June 22, 2010 2:03 am

Behind the scenes
June 22, 2010 1:38 am

Special thanks to R Yoel Schwartz from Kiryas Joel for jumping into this effort from the very begining. Hashem should repay you Kefel Kiflayim!

Online payment
June 22, 2010 1:35 am

Can you please post a link or way we can donate online?

June 22, 2010 1:29 am

We should have rallies of Achdus in good times as well.

Yasher Koach
June 22, 2010 1:26 am

A big Yasher Koach to Rav Pinchus Lipshutz for his tremendous Ahavas Yisroel and for standing with Reb Sholom Rubashkin throughout this horrible ordeal.

June 22, 2010 1:25 am

I was there among the thousends of yidden and you felt the achdus in the air and so many around me had red eyes at some point. what a kiddush hashem

Masseh Hu Ha Ikkur
June 22, 2010 1:24 am

Hopefully we internilize Achdus and Ahavas Yisroel not only for our Frei Yidden but for fellow Frum Yidden. We should support and stand with Litvishe and Chassidisher Yidden in Boro Park and other from communities in their time of need just as they have stood with a fellow Yid who is a Lubavitcher. A Yid is a Yid and we should always remember we are all one people.

June 22, 2010 1:16 am

we watched it with our kids
may we hear good news NOW!

very moving
June 22, 2010 1:12 am

We should learn from this. It is time to put the value of achdus above all else.

Yidden be b’achdus and we will all go together to moshiach!

Yasher Koach
June 22, 2010 1:08 am

A Yasher Koach to all who helped make tonights rally possible. Even in this difficult time for us Yidden a ray of line shines with the tremndous Achdus demonstrated in that Zal in Boro Park tonight.

Was There and inspired
June 22, 2010 1:07 am

It took a lot of effort ,but I am glad i went .
The inspiration and Ahavas Isroel displayed for a Lubavitcher in Boro Park was Awsome.
It was embarrassing though that only a handful of Lubavithers showed up.We help the whole world but forget about our own Brothers.
We have a lot to learn from Satmar in Monroe and from the Yated ,from all their Ahavas Isroel towards Shalom Rubashkin.They spearheaded this whole campaign.
Let’s stop all the fighting and the Salvation will come Amen.

Food for Thought
June 22, 2010 12:59 am

It has been clear that throughout this terrible time Rav Pinchas Lipshutz has served as an example of complete Ahavas Yisroel he deserves Hakaros Hatov from us all for being at the forefront of exposing the agenda against Reb Sholom Mordechai and for standing with him and spreading his cause and organizing as well as fundraising for Reb Sholom Mordechai’s cause. This has generated tremendous achdus throught the Frum world with Yidden coming together from Monsey,Kiryas Yoel,Flatbush, Crown Heights, Lakewood and so many other places. We should always remember that as Yidden what unites us is so much greater than… Read more »

The greatest guaranteed assurance (of Divine assistance) for all Jewish parents in need of special help and deliverance1 for their children is through their support of those who study Torah.
