  1. I was thinking of this a few days ago. I was wondering if I could help ilovetorah in another way since I cant pay as of yet.

  2. Well, think what talents Hashem gave you and write me an email as to how we can channel them to help others and my website.

    Your a good man Reb Yitzchak

  3. you keep asking.
    and every time nobody helps you.
    you honestly believe you are m’kareving every person that comes to your site.
    don’t you think that’s a little naieve?
    most people come to your site for a good laugh.
    we don’t know if you are making fun of rebbeish people, baal tsivahish people, maybe both or you truly believe that you are a rebbe, which would be insane.
    well at least you give us somthing to laugh about in boro-park.

  4. I approved your post right away! I think it is my favorite of the year. You see the misconception of kiruv is that, “They have to be like me”, then they are religious… then they are right. It is all tikkun and the job of someone like myself is to help people to know, “There is a Hashem”.

    As far as the stats go, you can believe that is double or triple what I have written. As far as laughing in Boro Park, well kiruv isn’t always so far from home.

    Now instead of bashing, how about a helping hand. We are after-all, in this together.

    Comment by Reb Moshe — November 19, 2006 @ 5:51 pm

  5. uh, we already know there is HaShem, HaKodesh Burich Hee.
    that’s why we daven three times a day (4 on Shabbos and Yontif); learn in kollel, work at keeping 613 thirteen mitzvos and live a tznius lifestyle.

    I don’t believe I was bashing. I am attempting to save you from yourself.
    Learn in kollel, get a good job, take care of your family. Everything else will come in time.
    you are way ahead of yourself in what you perceive as development in Torah hashkafah.
    Look at Lazer Brody, Shalom Arush or Avraham Greenbaum’s websites. They hardly mention themselves. They write about TORAH. the first thing we see, and we see it over and over again on your site is pictures of you.
    Your site, and your videos are about you. You consider everything that is new to you to be new, but it shows a lack of depth.
    I am sorry that i mentioned people laughing at your website, i do feel bad when it happens, and although i try to defend you it is hard for people to understand.
    You want to be chasidish, then be chasidish. Don’t expect tens of thounsands of people to change their anciet ways because you dedided to put on a bekeshe and grow payos.
    If you want to be a rabbi, become a rabbi.
    When you do you will probably realize that what you are doing now is self promotion at best.
    as for kiruv, there are many good organizations in eretz Yisroel and chutz la’uretz, you should consider joining one of them.
    and don’t worry about my kiruv work. I am involved in kiruv on a daily basis, in a program directed by Rabonim. Even with smicha from yeshiva, the satmar ruv and other rabonim I would not go out without a strong group behind me, and constant support.
    hatzlocha rabba.

  6. thank you for your post. Next time everyone is laughing in boro park, please join them and if I cannot kiruv you since I see you already know ahavas yisrael so well, the very least I can do is bring simcha into your life. So please, please… laugh!

    Comment by Reb Moshe — November 19, 2006 @ 8:48 pm

  7. i do not laugh for you, i cry for you and what appears to be the good neshama you have that is trying to do the right things, but you need more time to develop.
    simcha is not laughing at somebody else’s misfortune.
    you just proved my point. your lack of depth makes you unqualified for kiruv at this time.
    learn in a good kollel full time for a few years then think about kiruv.
    try not to be so angry. work hard.
    and, understand that ahavas yisroel has nothing to do with the english word love. it’s deeper, you need to learn this. then you can be rabbi moshe instead of reb moshe.

  8. so I don’t continue to mislead these wonderfull people. Do you recommend I simply close the entire site or that I should forward you and your friends the server details to take it over. Then with your years of experience being surrounded by the walls of the Bais Medresh, house of learning, you can in your depth of wisdom, not love which is simply too frivoulous a term, be the true leader of these people?

    I am sorry viewers, no more milk, chocolate and love from Reb Moshe, time for the real meat and potatos! Anyone interested?

    Angry, I am not angry.. I was just laughing with you. Then you told me you were crying, so now I am crying with you.

    Comment by Reb Moshe — November 19, 2006 @ 11:13 pm

  9. i have changed my mind;
    you seem to be a very deeply disturbed individual.
    i hope you get help.
    and that you don’t do too much damage to other people.
    but now i understand you and your website.
    i won’t bother you any further.
    hatzlacha rabah.

  10. Hey Mo….

    I needed to say something about the posts you’ve been writing; maligning a good and decent man.

    I’m sure, being the well trained, yeshiva schooled rabbi that you are, that you understand publically embarrasing some is akin to killing them. Even if you truly feel the way you do about what Reb Moshe does, would it not be more appropriate to offer your rebuke in private? Since when is it OK to degrade a man for trying to teach torah (on any level)?

    You give our faith and upbringing a terrible name. You perpetuate this feeling of sinas cheenum by your insults. How do we know what madragah Reb Moshe is on? In fact, you yourself mention the possibility of his efforts coming from the heart. While you may not agree with how he presents himself, you cannot debate his sense of ahavas yisroel. Moreover, in my humble opinion, you need to look to Reb Moshe’s example as to how far one should go to help his fellow jew.

    The problem is that while you feel so enlightened being a member of the Boro Park community, you’ve forgotten what v’ahavta l’reiacha kamocha means. I suggest you pick up a copy of Chofetz Chaim and see what he says about it. Answer the following question “Rebbi”… Mee Ha’Ish Hechofatz Chaim?

    What you should be doing now is asking for mechila from Reb Moshe. Great men such as the Nikolsberger Rebbe and the Biala Rebbe have endorsed him. Are you saying the opinions of these Torah gedolim are less important than yours? Your mentality is what is driving a wedge between seemingly freem yidden. With whats happening in our “freemeh velt” (i.e. Monsey Tarfus scandals, Ponovich infighting, satmer and bobov rebbe issues) we need to come together, not divide ourselves.

    Think about these words Mo….

  11. …..oh, and one more thing Mo,

    I agree that Lazer Brody and Shalom Arush are wonderful examples to emulate. In fact, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with Rav Brody many times. He is an extraordinary man.

    You should know Lazer Brody has three different pictures of himself posted on his homepage. Moreover, he tries to SELL his CD’s and books to spread his wonderful ideas throughout the world.

    You may be more comfortable with traditional modalities of learning. However, try to be open minded enough to understand that while YOU know Hashem, and YOU try to keep 613 mitzvos, and YOU daven 3 times a day (and 4 times on shabbos and YomTov), and YOU have sat in Kollel, and YOU live a tznius lifestyle….. most yidden haven’t been so zoicheh.

    Maybe you should consider losing your holier-than-thau attitude and begin opening your arms to those that work to benifit all yidden… not just the ones that live between 45th street and 48th street.

  12. Hi, Mrs. Ilovetorah here. Just want to leave a comment. To Mo, if you would like we could send you all of the countless emails of religious and non religious Jews that my holy husband has helped. He recieves at least 100 emails from lost and depressed souls. He’s convinced messianic Jews go to shul, he’s stopped hundreds of Jewish men and women from dating and marrying non Jews, he’s raised up depressed people that had no more self worth to beleive they are aholy Jew and that the world was created for them. Every week we have over gusets for shabbos that are on all levels and they leave inspired and renewed in their love for Jewdaism. When we first got married I tried to get Moshe to go to kollel and not spend so much time with his projects. I wanted a “normal” yeshiva guy. But when I finally opened my eyes, read his messages and saw the hundreds of people he wasa helping I stopped him from going to kollel. Moshe begged the nikolsburg rebbe to let him give the web sight up, he hated the computer and just wanted to learn and he said no. He has the haskomos from the Nikolsburg rebbe , Biala rebbe, Rav Kotler of Lakewood, and Rav Zev Leff. These aren’t given out to just anyone.
    Moshe was given a gift of bringing people back to Hashem through his chizzuk and pure love of Torah and Yidden. If you don’t beleive me then I will send you thousands of emails of people that became frum because of Moshe and his website. Then you can go email all these people that my husband is a joke and that what he’s doing is a joke.
    Mo I hope Hashem will open your eyes to the emes of the world and humble your heart to realise a good thing when you see it. Please let all of your “laughing friends in Boro Park” read this.

  13. Sadly this Mo is talking out of his tuches and patting himself on the back a little too much. He cites himself as an example but it is obvious his lack of character refinement is a sore lack (Mo should study some mussar). Ahavat Yisroel is a concept that applies not only to your fellow satmars in boro park and I feel sorry for people who are the object of such kiruv, as they will become incomplete and full of ahavat sinam. Last time I checked boro park didnt require much kiruv work to begin with and satmar with their shul to shul fistfights are not great examples of pious and righteous yidden (not to mention the chillul HaShem of rejoicing at the death of fellow Jews in Eretz Yisrael that die in terror attacks-something you guys do on a grand scale and will have to answer to the Almighty for). Another point for this Mo who seems to think Reb Moshe does not good here-guess where I learned about Shabbos and washing hands? HERE! Yup, me and my wife (both being BT’s) have watched every single Reb Moshe video on his site and cannot imgaine where we would be were it not for his advice or his raising our spirits when the klippot try to take hold. You may not agree with Reb Moshe’s nusach or maybe you have a problem with Breslov (who are far mightier men of Torah and Kiruv than the peyot pulling satmars are) but rest assured Reb Moshe is every bit as much a “Rabbi” and “Rav” as you are or anyone else you’d like to mention. It is obvious from your post that Reb Moshe is just on a higher plane than you are for you will never find anywhere on his website any ill intent or lashon hara against his fellow Jews regardless of the rabbi they hold by or if they have no rabbi at all. He who insults a rightous tzaddik is as if he insults HaKadosh Baruch Hu Himself, and the Almighty tells us there is no room for the arrogant, haughty and ego driven in the same world as Himself.

  14. Moe stop talking already, ive had enough with it!

    Comment by shlomo — November 21, 2006 @ 12:11 am

  15. Mo, Apparently you lack good midos. Reb Moshe, has accomplished alot more towards kiruv then you have sitting and talking out of your tuches in Boro Park. Clearly you need more mussar and to learn better midos. So please refrain from insulting “REB MOSHE” and just “SHUT UP”! HaShem has blessed Reb Moshe with gifts you don’t have and never will.
    HUMILITY (ANAVA) – the Talmud says that humility is the greatest of all good midos. The Orchos Tzadikim says that humility is the good mida from which all other good midos stem (conversely, its opposite, gaiva [arrogance-haughtiness] is the principle bad mida from which all other bad midos stem). Humility is removal of barrier between yourself and another, whether G-d or other people. Humility lets your mind and heart “make room and let the other in.”

  16. yossel,

    Just because of one person’s insensitive comments doesn’t give you the right to insult the whole of Satmar (by the way, the Satmar Rebbe zt”l cried many tears every time he heard of the death r”l of an Israeli (secular) soldier.) A theological problem with Zionism is irrelevant to this disgussion, but motzei shem ra is ilegal.

    As for R’ Moishe’s site, to be honest I haven’t gone through it, but if you knew how much chizuk I got from the old one “Awsome litvish chasid” then probably I’d get from here too. To R’ Moshe – don’t let these people cheper you – keep up the good work

    Comment by Avrohom Yitzkhok — November 22, 2006 @ 1:56 am

  17. Just to add to my previous post, the Satmar Rov zt”l held very much of Rebbe Nachman, and personally learnt Likutei Moran, as well as encoraging others to do so. Anyone who speaks against Breslov is not a real Satmar chossid (if a Chossid at all)

    Comment by Avrohom Yitzkhok — November 22, 2006 @ 3:20 pm

  18. Perhaps Mo is Neturei Karta, they seem to hate fellow jews. and plus they endear the satmars! case closed.

    Comment by Asa Yitzchak — November 28, 2006 @ 2:27 am

  19. Many years ago, Satmer threw Neturei Karta out since they became so extreme and have separated themselves from them. I hold very highly from Satmer Chassidim. In fact, a few weeks back I stayed by a Satmer Chassid for Shabbos. When he offered to show me to a different Bais Medresh, I refused and told him, this shabbos, I too am a Satmer chassid and joined him. You see the only way to appreciate people and learn from them is to raise or lower yourself to them.

    In this case we all lowered ourselves to mo’s level and Boruch Hashem, I and all of us can grow from this experience. That is, if there is a mo in your life, simply try to ignore him and eventually he will just go away.

    Comment by Reb Moshe — November 28, 2006 @ 3:03 am

  20. Now, back to the subject at hand. Can anyone help?
