    If Rabbi Kaplan will act as a true representative of Chabad, a time will come when these 34 willl say that it was their idea to bring him to Albania.

    Understanding Chief Rabbi Role

    1) What does it mean to be a chief rabbi of 150 Jews?

    2) What does it mean when 34 of those 150 – 25% of the community don’t recognise your position?

    3) How does a secular government appoint a Chief Rabbi?

    Answer to all the above: It’s another RCE stitch up. They must have orchestrated the whole thing.

    Why are so many new shluchim obsessed with appointing themselves Chief Rabbi of their area?

    I agree

    I agree

    #3 you said it right. Why can’t the shluchim just do their missionary work and leave Rabbonus for those who know how to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    To # 4:
    What do you mean?
    A Shliach is the real Chief Rabbi, most of other Rabbis are stam employees who need to make a living…
    Shlichus IS Rabbonus!!!
    And Boruch Hashem when the emes and the reality in heaven is becoming poel mamosh begashmius.

    And to # 2:
    You must be happy to play the role of Amolek.
    I can bet you do nothing in your life, so you must be mekanter on those who do something.
    Shame on you.

    Congratulations, Yoel
