Rabbi Riskin This video and its messages can be understood by (nearly) everyone. I was very surprised & glad to hear that Rabbi Riskin has a relationship w/ the Lubavitcher Rebbe, & it appears this relationship was positive in all respects. I hope he presents to his own community of Efrat his message about the Rebbe. And presents the Rebbe as he did in this video, that Rabbi Riskin would seek advice from him. Unfortunately, I have met many "modern" type Orthodox Jews that do not understand the Rebbe or all that he does for the Jewish world and the world in general. Rabbi Riskin is one of the most respected & sought after Rabbis. To every audience, regardless of its makeup, I hope he communicates this same message. And perhaps, G-d-willing, they will come to better understand & appreciate the Rebbe.
Rabbi Riskin should also stress how the Rebbe's advice helped him personally, in the USA and in building Efrat. Rabbi Riskin, all honor to you! Reply
