Vote !?

have y’all lost your minds?

the rebbe’s glory is subject to mass vote !? open to the entire earth !?

let me see… it should then be a useful exercise to have all children under the age of 4 choose who their favorite essayist is, and if somehow the vote is manipulated to have your favorite person X win, that’s meaningful to you.

This vote process and the response on this article and others to spur people to vote is a wonderful example of
nauseating brainlessness that pervades the masses.

Opium for the masses indeed.

Huh?!
July 21, 2009 8:02 am

How do they find out on their own?

Huh?!
July 21, 2009 7:37 am

We dont need to vote. we know the Rebbe is the Rebbe and to make sure everyone else knows about it-well they can find out on their own. i dont think we need to ‘vote’ the Rebbe in for being the ‘best’ or wtvr

Rebbe
July 21, 2009 7:33 am

THE Rebbe is not only our Rebbe, the Rebbe is the worlds Rebbe, and we have to take advantage of all the gashmiusdike opportunities we have to spread the Rebbe’s objective,so what’s wrong if the Rebbe goes into the hall of fame. All the comments from people that are against it, don’t have to much contact with the outside, obviously.

CANT BELEIVE
July 21, 2009 7:02 am

CANT BELEIVE SOME OF YOUR COMMENTS..WHAT ARE YOU GUYS A BUNCH OF PRIMITIVE PEOPLE… CHABAD IS CHOCHMA BINA DAS, DID THE REBBEIM KNOW THAT A PERCENTIGE OF THEIR CHASIDIM WOULD BE SUCH KNUCKLE HEADS,,,OR IS IT THAT THEY DONT LEARN CHASIDUS TO BE CHABAD.

vote to get the rebbe REMOVED from this list
July 21, 2009 6:46 am

having the rebbe in one list with lilienthal and other kofrim legitimizes them.

having the rebbe win over them is no glick, other than being on the same field. having them win over the rebbe would embolden the maskilim.

as far as we are concerned, the perpetuation of torah shows that our rebbeim since the tzemach tzedek have already won this contest, in europe of last century as well as in america today.

If the Rebbe wins
July 21, 2009 5:47 am

If the rebbe wins, he wont be on the list with them. Just vote for the frum leaders and it will be a kiddush hashem. Rohr is american

Lev Leviev
July 21, 2009 3:53 am

Please enter Lev Leviev and Sami Rohr in the Philatrophy vote write in

What's going on????
July 21, 2009 2:43 am

#7 & 16 have it right.
If there would be a way I would get the Rebbe ( & R’ Sloveitchick & R’ Leeser) removed from this “competition”.
It’s a BIZAYON to have his ( & their ) names associated with those “candidates”.

I voted for the Rebbe and Isaac Leeser
July 21, 2009 2:25 am

Not too many people know who Isaac Leeser was. He was a major public defender of Orthodox Judaism during the 19th century when everyone was going over to reform.

dont dare mention shlomo c in the same breath as rebbe moshiach tzidkenu
July 21, 2009 1:46 am

i vote for the rebbe!!!!!!!!!! but i agree, if like someone else wins, that means the rebbe is any less then he is today?? sure it will be a kidush hashem and all, but dont get distracted. better learn a sicha of the rebbe then go crazy oer some naarishkeiten

Who the (BEEP)>>>
July 21, 2009 1:37 am

Who is Sally Priesand??? The first reform rabbi hehe.

voting
July 20, 2009 6:27 pm

when the majority of so called religious leaders that are nominated here,are reform, conservative, reconstructionists, and who knows what else and they dafke tried to show the world that learning Torah and doing Mitzvos B’hidur is not important,because they themselves come from frum homes,and in the same breath is chosen a leader who revived Yidishkeit and spread it to every single corner of the world,what could be a bigger conquest then that?

To 13 / 14

July 20, 2009 4:31 pm

To #7
July 20, 2009 3:35 pm

I also felt ill seeing the Rebbe in the same list as ….

to#10
July 20, 2009 3:15 pm

stop and think for a minute. Won’t it be a big Kiddush Hashem if the Rebbe wins.It’s not stupid and meaningless.The Rebbe will be glorified and publicized,and millions more people will know about the Rebbe.

t s
July 20, 2009 2:31 pm

and if the rebbe doesn’t win i guess he’s not #1?

stupid, mass hysteria gets many to do stupid meaningless (at best) things.

For the Rebbe, of course!
July 20, 2009 2:08 pm

and Chaim (Haym) Solomon who funded the American Revolution. There wouldn’t be an “Only in America” wall without him.

MOSHIACH NOW!!!
July 20, 2009 2:01 pm

i vote the REBBE AS MOSHIACH!!!!

To #1
July 20, 2009 1:39 pm

This is no Kiddush Hashem, don’t fool yourself

To have the Rebbe mentioned in the same context as Schachter-Shalomi and Mordechai Kaplan is no honor

Biased list!
July 20, 2009 1:37 pm

This list is purely secular!

Lev Leviev is much more ‘Jewish’ then many of those people in Business and Philanthropy”
Unlike others who are Jewish but do not donate to Jewish causes, he has and with the help of the Shluchim single-handedly saved Russian Jewry from extintion

I would also put Ronald Lauder instead of Edgar Bronfman who supported intermarriage

only for the REBBE
July 20, 2009 1:36 pm

I voted only for the Rebbe

Send this link to everyone you know!!!
July 20, 2009 1:34 pm
