Can You Spot Rabbi Shlomie Chein???

Last week our beloved Rabbi Chein attended the annual Chabad conference in New York. I haven't checked in with him yet about his trip, but I found pictures! Hooray!

Now that's a shame.

Trust me, if it didn't make sense, you're lucky. You should never know of such things.

I guess you could always ask your local Chabad rabbi for clarification.

It's a shame that Jewschool deceived the fact behind the story by misusing information.

There was no "Inter-Lubav" fighting, there was an attack on the Shluchim by a group of hoodlums. From the picture and headlines alone, one might assume that there was a complete destruction, when it is simply a pile of a few benches. They also skipped out the fact that 2000 Shluchim were there {peacefully} following the convention.

While the article might have been posted from Jewschools website the article itself was from CHABAD.INFO, so Jewschool should not be to blame for it. In anycase, the orginal article was titled "Shocking vandalism of 770:The Remains of the Pogrom"

By the way, if you look at the header from it clearly states where their affiliation lies.

These "hoodlums" are, as far as I know yeshiva students, fed and housed by Chabad yeshivas. So, to say they are mearly just some hoodlums makes us assume that they (approx 20-40) suddenly came from the street to make this a random attack. Even if it was one person, it is still a problem as these are the same young people that grow up to go on shluchus.

Fedora, if people actually ask their Chabad shluchim about this I am sure you won't get a full answer because underneath it all, their is some shame and digust about what actually goes on inside 770.

I read a pretty lengthy description of the whole incident some time ago and I apologize now if I can't find the article again.

The point is that the article is purposely deceptive, looking only to expose the bad and not reporting on anything good. But I guess that's the nature of such an enlightened web site.

Which web site are you refering too? If you are talking about then you are right, they do write some very deceptive things. Especially since it is a meshichist web-site.

The truth is, if you want all positive news about the kinus you can find plenty of those! In fact, many sites, even official news sites, did not put anything about what happened after the kinus banquet,,, and These sites are just as unbalanced as they just happened to be unbalanced in a direction that YOU like. so it just doesn't bother you. Any news source that just writes good news is not balanced nor is one that is never critical, but that's ok. Just don't claim that it's balanced.

No, I meant that Jewschool was purposely trashing Charedim by being deceptive. That's their prerogative though.

As far as the sites which are officially Chabad arms, this wasn't exactly an official Chabad event or accomplishment, it was just another day in 770. None of those web sites report on "small time" news items. In fact, doesn't report news at all. Unlike the news-sites, these sites are particularly for PR.

What's with all the anonymity all of a sudden? Doesn't the Web, in and of itself, provide enough of that?

That said, I must defend Jewschool. Now, I defend it not only because I have become a Jew-blogging addict, eagerly awaiting the cutting-edge news and commentary as a daily jolt of coffee wake-up or using it to inject spiceful thinking into the essays I'm writing for classes (as now), but also because the contention that Jewschool is "deceptive" in its coverage of Charedi world unfounded.

To put it simply: Don't blame accurate blog-alism for undesirable truths.

"Anonymous" - if you read the blog seriously, you would know that one of the editors is the hassidic rap artist Y-Love.

An interesting article here

Also an interesting exchange in defense of Charedim here

Now, I understand that it is a collective, in that the contributors have incredible freedoms in what they post - the opposite of traditional journalism - and therefore despite this one rapper, you might say, the site is anti-Charedi. Well, uhmmmm, I don't buy that... Criticism is healthy. That's [part of] the reason why blogs exist.

Seriously... what's the deal with all the anonymity?

Werd to you, Rakdannit427. Israel can't wait to see you.

And, as an avid Jewschool reader for the last two years, and as a charedi-in-training (jay kay... kind of), I must say that Jewschool itself is definitely not anti-charedi, anti-orthodox, or anti-Chabad.

They have a diverse collective of contributors, and some of them as individuals do oppose ultra-orthodoxy, but some of them are orthodox or ultra-orthodox themselves.

And they do like to report on controversy within the Jewish world, and they usually only have other websites and newspapers to rely on for their information. So if anyone is to blame for misinformation, it would be

So if you're a yachi-nik, was just reporting the facts. If not, was slanting the story, and Jewschool was just relying on them.

But did anyone else read that part about someone getting both his legs broken? That's some hardcore, messed up stuff.
