Rabbi Menachem Mendel Gurevitch, Director of Yeshivas Tomchei Tmimim in Brunoy, France, celebrated the marriage of his youngest daughter last week.

Can I guess?

They are all shluchim, spreading the gospel of the Rebbeh?

Shluchim or not they all need to get a real job and not just living in a fantasy land

You go out of town and you can't live without the shluchim.
Some are just jealous.

Really, Janscibacsi ? Wow... And what did YOU do to help other people in remote places all around the world ?
And how many mishnayos can you recite by heart ?

Great, another pack of religious predators hungry for other people's money (or worse). They never met a dollar that wasn't glatt kosher.
We have the Lubavitcher Rebbe to thank for unleashing his plague of parasites upon Jews worldwide.

Six days shall you work-over your fellow Jew and take a fat buck, but on the seventh day you shall rest and only preach in the name of God that they should hand over their money.

Nachos. I’m not a Lubavitcher just a yid from Flatbush. With almost five million American Jews assimilating we could use a Lubavitcher a thousand times bigger. Like it or not we need more outreach to our going lost brothers.

Wow, they’re all Rabbis. All ten of them!
When everyone is a Rabbi, nobody is. Watering down that honorific with wall-to-wall Rabbis makes the designation pedestrian.

Like it or not, your beloved Lubavitchers are actually driving Jews away when those Jews get savvy to the scam, and when the truth comes out about their shliach (and the truth always comes out... sooner or later). Not sure what it's like in very Jewish NY, but here turnover is a given. And some leave with less respect for Judaism and Torah then they came in with. But when our shluchim say 'love your fellow Jew' they mean 'drop love bombs on wealthy Jews and call them your fellow.'

I wonder how many Jews Chabad will drive away before they officially become the new religion of Rebbe-anity.
Neo-Christians with a Torah. I think it's already been done before, just not with a haredi flavor and costume.

I think to title it "think you have it bad" is very derogatory to Chabad. Like having daughters is a curse. Look how fortunate he is by marrying his daughters off to religious men. How fortunate he is.
No, Chabad is not perfect but other mosdos are not perfect either. They have done a lot of good.
Those who knock them, will certainly need them especially when you be stuck in a small town,when you have to say kaddish and all you have is Chabad. Then you will eat your words.
And have to say Oshamnu.

Daughters are as much of a blessing as sons. If G-d sends us a skewed gender balance on our tax returns, someone else has it skewed in the opposite direction. As a collective, it's all good.
As far as shulchim or rabbis go, we need clergy. Despite the fact that the profession carries with it opportunities for abuse, anyone who practices a faith needs a community of fellow practitioners, as well as someone who is knowledgable in the faith. Yes, there are frauds and money grubbers out there, as well as purveyors of negativity in other ways. It is for this reason that I have changed doctors and changed rabbis. G-d dealt me my hand to play as well as possible. If a given rabbi can not respect my struggles, I go and find someone who can. My current rabbi is not only learned, but kind as well. I get more chizuk from his warm smile than a thousand drashot. It is for want of this human warmth that I left a prior congregation.
Lubavitch does great things. But I know of no religious group that does not have some bad apples. Every congregation needs to raise money, either from set dues or fund raising. I see no problem with that. If a rabbi makes you feel like you have a bar code on your @$$, go to another rabbi. What to do if you are in a one shul town and the rabbi is a lemon instead of an esrog? That's a tough one.

Lubavitch is flooding the market with their cheap mass-produced "rabbis" (missionaries). Their last Rebbe wanted everyone to get semicha.

In some other circles, only better talmidim, or those going into rabbonus, or maybe chinuch, get it. Elsewhere it is even frowned upon.

Bottom line - Lubavitch semicha is like products made in China. Mass-produced, cheap, questionable quality.
