What is Chabad?

Check out this wasome video about Chabad of my beautiful hometown. Who can spot the two bloggers in this video? (I will remove the link in a few days for confidentiality reasons, so make sure to watch it now!)

I'm sure TRS and le7 are gonna post about the wedding, so I won't tell you the whole story from my perspective (in brief, we came, we drank, we danced). But I hope to post later about the saga of the Rebbe's Kapote. So stay tuned!

  2. cool. e, during TRS and le7's absence from blogger, you need to step up and fill the void. Two, maybe three, posts a day would be great. I've gotten used to TRS' daily posts and now my dashboard is very empty.

  3. Altie: There was another blogger there: four-year-old e.

    Dovid: long time no see (metaphorically speaking).

    Sarabonne: two points.

  4. Ya I haven't commented but I read. But exam week is always the best time to spend commenting on blogs.

  5. Yup, I notice the unusually well-dressed Cheerio, but I don't see 'little e'.

    Man, the beginning of that video sounds like it's going to turn into the 'Perfect Strangers' theme song (which is apropos because it supposedly took place in Chicago. ...for those of you who heard of it).

    By the way, if you want to see a really funny video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFSGKbmJMLY (CGI Milwaukee; Avremi Shapiro).

  7. Cute video - Kol Hakavod to Lubavitch Chabad of Skokie! The only critics I have are that the graphics seem a bit dated (it could have come right out of 1990) and the lack of names for the people speaking . . . when there's a name attached, it feels far more authentic.

    To the blogger that said that chabad is like a Motel Six, would you care to explain?

  8. You guys are like a G version of the local Chabad house.

  9. Shriki: Little e is sitting with his family in a formal portrait, wearing a checkered suit that I thought was embarrisingly babyish even back then.

    It happens to be the picture of our family in the shluchim book.

    Mottel: I guessed that she meant that Chabad always keeps the light on for you.

    CA: We're for baalabatim, and your place is for kids.

  10. Ok I saw the whole video (was surfing COL) I saw little E, and btw, you sound surprisingly similar to another guy in the video.

  11. “Uncommonly” well-dressed perhaps (i.e. most ‘ultra-orthodox’ girls don’t dress quite like that). ..either way it was meant positively

    Oh, and: “Motel Six”? ; )

  12. Yeah, what's up with that motel six comment?

  13. mottel hit the nail on the head.
    (plus, that's what they told me to say, so that explanation is as good as any!)
