An op-ed on Lamah Tisrau למה תתראו and the Rebbe’s clear words, not to mention Shulchan Aruch’s, of starting up with people on the outside and about Chilul Hashem would be warranted. Not sure if publicizing every stupid thing that every genius does is the way to go though.

When the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe came out with the proclamation that Moshiach is near in the 1940s, the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe (then the RaMaSh) printed Moshiach stickers (yellow stickers that said לאלתר לגאולה) for bochurim to plaster New York with (they would go around every Friday, much like mivtzoim of today, and put them up on trains, bus stations, etc.). The Rebbe himself is said to have been seen putting up stickers around the city. A bochur (Meyer Reich?) was once arrested while putting up the stickers, and the Rebbe got him released and thanked him and gave him a… Read more »

because the citibikes are being used.

The fact that you think this makes it okay is also ridiculous. They’re destroying property that isn’t theirs. That’s never right. The same goes for all the stickers on the lampposts.

Put all the moshiach stickers you want on your own bicycles, homes, cars etc. Not on public property.

While I do think vandalism and graffiti etc is not right in this case I am not crying for CITIbike. They have big contracts with companies are happy to remove these stickers for a hefty price.Im sure the independent contractors are real happy about this one. Also as a side point, If CITIbike would do a survey or two and see if this is even NEEDED on this block when there are so many other citibike racks in the neighborhood instead of the bank where already parking space is at a premium.

Finally someone with a clear view on the rebbes kavanah.

When the rebbe campaigned to spread the message of moshiach, the rebbe specified for it to be done “bdarchei shalom”.

defying a government who actively rejects the safety and financial needs of our community is “the way of peace”.

I’d like to see more of peaceful protests as done by this justice warrior around town until our demands are met.

This is an absolute disgrace. These bikes are used daily by the community at large. Crown heights does not belong to Lubavitch and many many other people live here who use these bikes daily. And putting those stickers on these bikes isn’t spreading the “message of moshiach “, people are seeing this and hate us for damaging others property. This also goes for all the stickers on every traffic sign through your New York. It’s a disgrace and most definitely adds to the anti-semitism we are all feeling these days. Disgusting.

Who cares?
April 18, 2023 12:45 pm

Trust me, if this was a MAGA sticker or something similar, no one would bat an eye. But since it’s a Moshiach sticker and doesn’t fit with some people’s agenda, all of a sudden it’s a catastrophe.
Move on people. There’s other things to worry about in life.

I’m not sure that Who Cares is a democrat (I think liberal people would actually be more upset by Moshiach stickers).
He was just making a point that people don’t mind stickers if they represent something that they koch in.

how else to publicize Moshiach!

Absolutely Adorable!

Baruch Hashem! They did a public service! Can they tackle the ads above the subway next???? Those ads are always so horrible and not tznius and do not belong in Crown Heights. And who asked the city to take up hundreds of parking spots when they could have just as easily put them on the sidewalks/parkway? This has only created more stress and chaos for NYC drivers.

Why are you angry?

Can someone please explain why it seems every Jew in CH is frustrated by these new citi bikes? Please don’t say because of parking

The truth is the truth

I’m sorry but go right now to Kingston and Carroll Street and every single bike over there has different stickers, but when comes to Moshiach it’s called vandalize??

To vandalize with random stickers is one thing. But to vandaliz with the rebbes face is something completely different and wich would cause alot of attention.

Put the bike racks on the wider sidewalks, not in
April 18, 2023 2:58 pm

There’s a new rack near my house that is seldom being used — it’s almost always filled wybikes going unused. It blocks 3 potential parking places on the street.

Yet the sidewalk there is very wide. There is no reason this bicycle rack could not have been installed on the very wide sidewalk there, instead of the street..

PLUS — Citibike riders seldom wear helmets — double stupidity!

THE CHUTZPAH!

I cannot believe we as a community have stooped this low. The audacity of this bochur is out of this world. We must hunt him down and make sure he is never entered into the Shidduch system.
This act represents the terrible Chinuch we have going in our community.
Lubavitch, we can do better! We must make the Rebbe proud!

( Although honestly I must say, this prank is a little bit humorous.)

Are we serious!?!?
April 18, 2023 4:35 pm

There is so much negativity in the world and this is spreading something positive and holy- לקבל פני משיח צדקינו! Read the sichos of the later years, this is our Avodah! The Rebbe’s face is so holy and special, let people drive around seeing it! I personally know people who were mekareved through seeing the Rebbe pictures on the traffic lights in Manhattan. We have no idea what amazing things this can accomplish!

Lol

It was me! All you guys calm down it was just a few stickers!

Hey
April 18, 2023 10:25 pm

With all the crime, drugs and problems out there…
If that’s how this guy is letting out his energy…. it’s all good 👍

Look with a good eye
April 18, 2023 10:29 pm

All he wants to do is to spread moshiach!
And for the Rebbes picture… it will make people’s day.
He didn’t vandalize anything…
He did a neat job!

And just to remind all the critics, this past shabbos we read…
הוי דן את על האדם לכף זכות

Who in the world vandalized
April 19, 2023 8:07 am

This is filled with absolute lies! Who vandalized anything just because a group of people don’t like it it doesn’t mean it’s called vandalized
