More Magic in Chabad

Sadly toward the abyss.  Energy healing, certified by a proven homeopathic "doctor" no less.  The comments following the post on COL are somewhat more encouraging than the fact that they seriously published this interview.

  • It is like baseball. The rule for orthodox Judaism in general and Chabad Lakewood in particular should be you don't have to join if you don't want to. But if you join you must obey the rules. Kiruv breaks both these rules. It insists on everyone joining. And when they join the unwritten rule is that rabbis don't need to obey the rules of the halacha when they don't feel like it. They feel free to manipulate the halach whenever it is convenient. This includes ignoring it completely. The greatest enemies of Torah are orthodox rabbis because they don't know what it means to really believe in something to the degree that personal utility cant outweigh the principles.

    orthodox Judaism fails four major tests that a true religion should fulfill:

    1. Adherence to a religion must be a personal choice;(not be forced by whipping to fulfill mitzvot)

    2. No religion should demand that those who leave it be killed;

    3. A religion must never mandate the subjugation of those who do not belong to it;

    4. A religion must be in accord with basic human rights.

  • Adam, are you sure about this??? SOme of these allegations seem a bit far fetched, and lacking in specificity. In real life, everything seems to be laid back, and there appears to be no retaliation against those who leave.
