I'm putting the finishing touches on the first New Orleans post . . . until then - enjoy another Weird Sign Wednesday
Kolel has a policy - they let any pashkville float around the place - only letters about shlichus opportunities get ripped up . . . but I digress
Erev Shabbos I saw this lovely letter written by "One of Anash [i.e. a Lubavitcher]" decrying Hatzalah of Crown Height's policy of driving back from the hospital themselves on Shabbos - as opposed to being driven back by a non-Jew - a policy, claimed by the letter, to be practiced in the holy communities of Williamsburg, London, Boro Park, Antwerp and Monsey.
This pashkville goes on to complain that in Crown Heights we act like the "Moderne" - something clearly against the will of the Rabbis of Crown Heights.
No I'm not familiar with the particulars of the Halachos here . . . I'm sure hatzalah here has rabbonim they consult.
Which is what bothers me here . . . picking on people who go out on a limb to help others is wrong. Coming into a community that isn't yours? Epic Fail.
How do we know this pashkville wasn't written by a Lubavitcher?
- Who in Lubavitch writes a pashkville in Yiddish?
- If someone did . . . they wouldn't write it in a Poilisher Yiddish
