    Very important topic, especially after the recent attempts to grab all that one special chosid worked on, all his life, to bring the Rebbe to the English language community, it is time for this grab to stop. The Rebbe and his holy words of Torah does not belong to a single family……to profit….and to control…

    Wow!!!

    Wow!!!

    At 53 minutes he says that the Rebbe clearly wished for something. Yet, a fee seconds later he says “but legally that can’t go on for generations” since it is Torah. Why is the rebbe’s wish as to who published his talks limited to his lifetime??

    If you listen to the entire piece without prejudice, the dear rabbi says that he is not stating anything conclusive, only that there are two elements to consider: 1) Torah is not owned by anybody. 2) The costs related format and design, as well as quality control.

    Where in the world did you hear him say that the Rebbe’s wishes are limited to his lifetime?!

    Thank G-d for Rabbi Jacobson presenting this and other ideas with a clear approach based on Torah, and not “corporate” agendas.
