The Rebbe Said
December 16, 2015 10:08 pm

The Rebbe greeted politicians as regular people, which is how Lipa greeted the pres. While I dislike the pres politically, we must follow the Rebbe’s example and use these opportunities to first connect as humans, creations of Hashem, then we can discuss business appropriately.

I think Lipa is very talented and a wonderful person but giving attention to the wrong guy! I think that its sad to say that Obama will not change his outlook on the jews just because Lipa made a trip to the whitehouse to entertain this horrifying, immortal President!
Don’t get me wrong though, Lipa is great!

stop with the hate!

Different perspective on frum people???

Lipa – you’re a really nice COOL guy but – Do you really believe that good Yidden need to give a “different perspective” to Barack Hussein Obama? Where is your true Jewish pride? Sad to ask – but do you perhaps need to look at Obama’s Afrocentric Black Muslim pride and learn from him how to do it? I always find you quite entertaining – but THIS? Most of us were Yeshiva or Seminary students, highly educated in creative authentic study, critical analysis, and deep innovative interpretation. What is the Kiddush Hashem in a frum Jew showing the “other side”?… Read more »

He’s so funny.

Maybe he could be the court jester.

TO no. 6 -Yes, a kiddush hashem

Here is lipa, a big star, very famous, and when he has the privilege to meet the most powerful person in the world, he chooses to proudly wear his (large!) yarmulka, payos and kapote for all to see! And he offers the president a Jewish article as a gift. I would call that a kiddush Hashem.

Lipa meeting President Obama very interesting

a kiddush hashem?!

For those who aren’t aware exactly how to define what a kiddush hashem is I’ll be happy to explain. A kiddush hashem is when people see a yid dedicated to torah and mitzvos no matter the circumstances.

HA!!

Gotta love LIPA!!

If you are comfortable with your yiddishkiet this is the biggest kiddush Hashem, one dosent have to show anyone that one is “cool and with it” cool is milushon Kar which means cold. The world respects a hot Yid one who is driven in the RBSH ways then one will get all the respect and attention they need. Hatzlocha Rabbah in finding your connection. Please consider a daily shiur in Chassidus chabad.

#2: Not like the prez, who is NOT a good man and who DOES NOT help out the ill, or anybody else who happens to be a Jew.

Next time meeting the president ask to free Sholom Mordichai Rubashkin. Or put that on your yamilkas.
