NYT on Purim Partying

The NYT briefly covers a raucous Chabad Purim party in Willamsburg - with both Hasids and hipsters in attendance.

In the 1970’s, the Satmars in Williamsburg committed acts of violence against Lubavichers who wanted to proselytize there. They were afraid that the Lubes would cause some Satmars to switch teams. (Which did happen in a few instances.) But I guess as long as the Lubes stick to dealing with hipsters, they should be safe.

I wonder if child services will be wondering why an infant was present at a raucous party where alcohol was being served. I hope not.

orthomom-

sorry for the off-topic, but I'm wondering if you know about/what you think of Eden Hilla, a MO luxury housing development in Israel. Here is their website; would be very interested in your perspective.

The Chofetz Chaim, relates a parable regarding those that lessen thier observance of Torah and mitzvot in order to bring lost souls back. He compares them to a close subject of a king, whom the king has absolute faith that he'd do whatever he asked. A rival nobleman once bet the king that he could get the subject to defy the king's order. The king bet the nobleman 5 Million Ruble that this subject would always do whatever he asked. The king ordered the subject to wear his royal garment for 30 days, without taking it off. After a couple of weeks, the nobleman approaches the subject and tells him he would be so honored to wear the royal garment, that he'd give the subject a million ruble to donate to the kings coffers if he'd let him wear the garment for 1 day. The subject, thinking he'd be doing the king a great service by brininging such a fortune to his treasury, took off the royal garment, and came to the king proudly displaying the 1 million ruble present. The king was furious: "I needed you to do what I told you, not what You felt was right, but what I commanded you."
I think the moral is pretty clear, these people are deluding themselves into thinking that they are doing G-d's work, when in actuality they are defiling HIS name.

"The Chofetz Chaim, relates a parable regarding those that lessen thier observance of Torah and mitzvot in order to bring lost souls back."

You're making a specious and nasty characterization about Lubavitchers.

What do you know about this chabadnik's level of observance beyond your own biased worldview?
