I don't think the subject is taboo.
We'll have to agree to disagree.

And I don't think my comment was ironic at all. The banquet not being the venue has nothing to do with "fear."
It's not your comment per se, it's the situation.

Discussing essentially the need to not worry about being overly PC, while the kinus banquet is overly concerned with being PC.

The purpose of the banquet is to energize and pump up the Shluchim. The purpose of the preceeding days is to discuss the what, how and why.

They don't get into policy specifics at the political national conventions, though they will touch on broad concepts.

Sure, they mention tefillin. But they mention Moshiach much more than tefillin at the banquet.

A talk on mivtzah tefillin wouldn't "be banned", it would just wouldn't take place at the banquet. It happens at the sessions. There are many sessions about Moshiach, and many Shluchim have the very same concerns mentioned in the speech.
I'm not really sure if we're actually arguing here or not.
Are you saying that "We need to focus on Moshiach and stop being afraid of it. " is not a taboo subject at the banquet? I didn't mean it literally to "give a speech" about it, but I don't believe making this point in a speech would be allowed the same way making a point about the importance of mivtzah tefillin would be.


And I'm not talking about if it should or shouldn't be allowed, I was just pointing out what seemed to me the irony (is that the right word here? :) ) of it.
At the banquet? No. At the workshops and sessions? Most certainly.
We need to focus on Moshiach and stop being afraid of it.
Does this fit the definition of ironic? :P

It's not like they discussed the importance of Mivtzah Tefillin at the banquet either.
I don't believe that's true. (I didn't watch any of the speeches this year, but in past years it's been mentioned many times.)

Regardless if it does happen, are you trying to say a speech about mivtzah Tefillin would be banned the same as a speech about the importance of focusing on moshiach without being afraid would be?

Where can I watch a replay of the official kinus?
(most of) Those who go to that kinus would probably say that's the official one.

Under which ownership?

Last I heard was that it was being bought by someone who might have a challenge getting Kashrus certification, and was told that he must have a bone fide partner that could get certification.

This:
there's a Japanese place coming there.
is literally all I heard.
I don't know any details at all.

ALOL. I meant as far as stopping, resting, and shooting, not actual snowmobiling speed. That should be way faster this time.
I know what you meant, but I just had to... :)
