A Real Open Letter To Eshel – Hachnosas Orchim

The following is NOT an original 1bigcholent production. Yes, the following article looks like a sarcastic article written by 1bigcholent, but I kid you not, it is a real article posted on a meshichist web-site and written by a Meshichist named Gershon Avtzon, Rosh Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati:

By Rabbi Gershon Avtzon, Rosh Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati:

Dear leaders of “Eishel – Hachnasas Orchim” and “Beis Midrash Lenashim”

I am writing this letter of Chizzuk to you because I know how I would feel of I was in your “shoes” right now.

I am sure that inside some of you are feeling disappointed and even angry at some of the current events. You – like the rest of Lubavitch – have seen the notices posted all over crown heights, Israel and the internet that there are new organizations that will be “taking care” of the Ruchnius and Gashmius of the guests – boys and girls – this coming Tishrei.

You must be wondering to yourself – as I am – how ironic it is, that the very same people who told all of Lubavitch in 5755 that there “is nothing to come for anymore” and they should even stop the tear of “Kvutza”, are now the “hosts” of all the guests?

You must be insulted, that after all the effort – and nobody is perfect – that you put in to be sensitive and understanding of all the different “opinions” in chabad – and you always gave food and beds to everyone – that you are now being accused of “manipulating the minds of the Bachurim and girls” by just teaching them the words of the Rebbe?

It is to you – and anyone that feels hurt by the situation – that I want to share an interesting Pirush that I had once learned:

Dovid Hamelech says in a Passuk in Tehillim (122:1) ” I am happy when people say, we are going to the house of Hashem”. Simply understood, Dovid Hamelech is saying that he is happy that people are going to the Beis Hamikdash. Yet there is an obvious question: There was no Beis Hamikdash in the time of Dovid Hamelech?!

The Mefarshim explain a fascinating explanation: All the Yidden know that the Beis Hamikdash would not be built in the lifetime of Dovid Hamelech. One time Dovid was walking, and he heard someone say ” I can not wait for Dovid Hamelech to dies, so that the Beos Hamikdash can be built!”. Instead of getting upset, Dovid Hamelech said ” I am happy when people say, we are going to the house of Hashem”

So dear friends I urge you: Please do not get sad or angry. Just echo the words of Dovid Hamelech ” I am happy when people say, we are going to the house of Hashem”. That even in 5775, the very people who thought the Lubavitch is over, are encouraging everyone to come for Tishrei! This is amazing and it is only in your zchus – and akshanos all these years to provide hachnasas orchim – that this is happening today.

May we merit to have the complete hisgalus of the Rebbe MH”M and he will take us all to Yerushalayim now!!

    Open Letter To Rabbi Gershon Avtzon,

    Dear Rabbi Gershon Avtzon שיחי

    First off, I would really like to thank you for taking the time to write this very important open letter. You gave me, a non-meshichist or better yet, a Chabad Chossid, lot’s of Chizzuk. Please write more in this style.

    With this letter of Chizzuk you prevented many Meshichistim Mossrim from strapping themselves with explosives and committing mass murder on Vaad Hatmimim participants and supporters.

    That said, I have a few questions regarding what you wrote, I am hoping you can clear them up for me and everybody else.

    1) Based on your introduction it’s clearly understood that you are writing this open letter based on conversations you had with fellow Meshichistim regarding this matter. Can you elaborate more on who you (specifically) spoke to and what he/they said?

    You wrote:

    You must be wondering to yourself – as I am – how ironic it is, that the very same people who told all of Lubavitch in 5755 that there “is nothing to come for anymore” and they should even stop the tear of “Kvutza”, are now the “hosts” of all the guests?

    2a) is this your own projection of what someone else might be “wondering” or is this based on a conversation you had with fellow meshichistim?

    2b) When you state “how ironic it is, that the very same people who told all of Lubavitch in 5755 that there “is nothing to come for anymore”etc…,

    Who specifically are you referring to when you say “the same people”?

    When did they say “that there “is nothing to come for anymore”, (show me where)? And are they the very same people who are currently supporting the Vaad?

    3) Are you seriously losing sleep over this?

    You write:

    So dear friends I urge you: Please do not get sad or angry. Just echo the words of Dovid Hamelech ” I am happy when people say, we are going to the house of Hashem”. That even in 5775, the very people who thought the Lubavitch is over, are encouraging everyone to come for Tishrei! This is amazing and it is only in your zchus – and akshanos all these years to provide hachnasas orchim – that this is happening today.

    4a) Are there meshichistim who are actually sad or angry about this? Who and why are they angry?

    4b) isn’t this is contradiction to previous statements made (several times) by the very web-site that you posted your open letter on?

    The previous statement:

    “Seeing those who claimed that there is no need to spend Tishrei in 770, taking action and organizing activities and Shiurim and trying to emulate Hachnosas Orchim, is a reason for happiness and gladness” say the organizers at Eshel.

    5) Again, who from those involved in the Vaad thought that “Lubavitch is over”, please specify? <<< Imagin you made this statement of the witness-stand and were now being grilled about specifics. Don't hold anything back.

    6) Do you think your "open letter" adds to Ahavas Yisroel or more to Sinas Chinom (an article laced with propaganda and innuendos)?

    Awaiting a timely response,
    Thank you again for the Chizuk.

    “I am sure that inside some of you are feeling disappointed and even angry at some of the current events. You – like the rest of Lubavitch – have seen the notices posted all over crown heights…”

    At this point I was 100% sure he was going to write about the unfortunate story we read earlier this week regarding the drug bust.

    But no, it’s even worse, it’s about other Yidden doing good things, a real tragedy.

    Like I always say:
    Keep doing good things and you kill your enemy.

    LOL, So now they have a problem with “nonbelievers” encouraging people to believe.
