Baruch Hashem. When will the Chabad Rabbonim finally say enough is enough!?!

Chaim said...

When will Moshiach-Geulah be revealed and actualised?

Rabbi Ari Montanari said...

You can add me!

octinomos said...

Bless Hashem...

Unknown said...

Sure enough is enough.
When is the Moshiach going to be revealed.

There is no unified leadership on this issue amongst the Chabad rabbeim, as far as I can tell. However, I share your sentiment very much! Amen!

Thank you to these rabbis! Baruch Hashem 👍🙌🇺🇲❤🇮🇱✡✌🕎

Hello Rabbi Green. If you can please email me about a letter? God Bless.

Amen, BH!

Rabbi Green, thank you so much for taking a courageous stance and a leadership role on this very important issue! Hashem can deploy various ways to unite all of Yiden together and I, for one, do not claim to know with certainly what Hashem is doing here. However, it is possible that this test that we, as Am Yisroel (as well as the rest of the world) is going through, may be one way that He is challenging us (all Yidden, from our leaders down to every Jew) to step up to the plate and be strengthened through our Emunah and Bitachon in His running this world and, in that merit, overcome the darkness (Galus) that is obscuring His transcendence and immmanence and, B'ezrat Hashem, merit His open revelation of our Moshiach Tzidkeinu very soon in our days!

Questions: Has this list of rabbis on your blog grown over time, recently? How often are you planning on updating it on your blog? Is there a concerted effort on your part to disseminate the very knowledge of this blog to all leading Rabbonim throughout the world - regardless of their affiliations or denominations? I think as more of them would see that their counterpart leaders throughout the world are not to afraid to step up and speak the truth and challenge the status quo, they themselves may find the courage and conviction to do the same, B'ezrat Hashem.
Thank you.

Hello Rabbi Michoel Green,

I read your compelling testimony to Connecticut General Assembly against bill HB5044.

And I heard you would give exemption for mandatory COVID vaccines based on religious grounds, regardless of one’s faith.

How can I contact you to discuss.

Thank you

I am not Jews, but I stand with you all! Baruch Hashem. May your voice not be silent on this matter, as Hashem does not silent for Yerushalayim.

Dear Rabbi, I notice that it has been nearly a month with no new comments from you. Hope everything is OK. Please keep posting! Shans tova!

It is DANGEROUS to tell people not to take the "vax" without also giving people information about how to protect themselves: 1. STOP INGESTING WHITE FLOUR AND WHITE SUGAR (they are the same!). SUGAR DE-ACTIVATES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. 2. take 5000 IU Vitamin D3 + 70 K2 (K2 keeps the lungs elastic in case of infection and prevents strokes). 3. Get adequate sleep - at least 7 hours a night. 4. Exercise, especially outdoors for at least 20 minutes a day. 5. Avoid all toxic people - the ones who tell you that you are a loser and a failure.
It's not enough to simply avoid the jab. You must take care of your health - physical and mental.

Do you have a letter I can attach on the Facebook group for religious exemptions? We are short on Jewish help from religious leaders. Thank you!

It is refreshing to see such a stand being taken. May God bless you all. David v Goliath in our times.

The coronavirus is not a fun illness to put it mildly. Very aggressive virus. And needs to be treated. Just not with the vaccine.
