sounds like a paskville on the web ?

anyone doing such research would identify himself

i as shocked that collive would publish this (and this website was registered yesterday i think and in some 3rd world country to hide their identity)

please do not publish pashkivilin anymore

Until this “Max” will identify himself this list is totally meaningless.

Anyone could compile a similar list and claim to have done it after consulting with “a group of journalists”

No name = No credibility.

It would be foolish for anyone to take this seriously. It is a Purim Torah.

Most of those mentioned are successful and excellent people.

That being said, this very list is a contradiction in terms for what Lubavitch stands for.

Its publication here is symptomatic of the superficiality that has gripped Lubavitch and that is further propagated by websites such as this one.

I think 90% of these names are legit.
There are so many accomplished shluchim. It’s very difficult to put such a list together, especially in a way that everyone agrees to.

The list is cute – and mostly accurate. The comments – just the jealous ones out there who didn’t make the list.

I think this is not correct Rabbi shemtov gives millions to bais rivkah one mosad and Reb Moshe spreads the wealth to hundreds of key shluchim not head of states and who supports the little guy even if it does not fit the head of state and he is NUMBER 2?

Rabbi Krinsky

The clearly distorted and poor description of Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, reveals the author’s bias and slant.

According to who? The Vaad Hakohol has more votes than these people! What these people have in common is PR saavy. Some of them are truly greats while others are suits with yichus. The sad commentary here is that there are Shluchim and Mechanchim around the world who, had they had any other upbringing in the frum world, would be gedolei gedolim or on their way there, Al derech HaShaliach Gavriel Noach Holtzberg HY”D. There are literally hundreds of “best kept secrets” in Lubavitch that make some on this list look small when objectively compared. I’m not saying that these… Read more »

Under Top 10 Global Rising Stars for founding and running the JLI .(The Rohr JLI is the largest institute of adult learning of its kind, teaching in over 300 cities around the world. Its professionally conceived courses are taught through interactive dialogue accompanied by dynamic textbooks and dramatic audio-visual presentations)

if you put a list of who directly made Balei Teshuva, many of the names would drop off the list.
People Like Azimov from Paris, Posner from BU, Silverstein from Ithaca, Spiegel from Eugene, only make Balei Teshuva, therefore they are undeserving because they are not attached to millions of dollars.

# 56 – Kluwgant isgrt at administration and self promotion but he is not a heavy weight in the area of real Rabbinics or in the Shluchim scene. Great to see that Australian Chabad was represented. Pinchus Feldman and Moishe Gutnik in Sydney could probably have been contenders were it not for the controversy and divisiveness that unfortunately has surrounded each of them in recent times. Australia suffered a grt loss with the petira of Rabbi Groner. Even though it will take a lot to fill his shoes, Rabbi Mordechai Gutnik is a good choice for someone at least partially… Read more »

It seems that newsweek is more aware of whom the rebbe placed in charge of his mosdos than our own.
