Because he definitely did, multiple times

Right. Here's one example -

Quote
כי, אע"פ שבעניני מצוה יש חילוק בין גדול לקטן, הרי, כשמדובר אודות קידוש שם ליובאוויטש, אין חילוק בין גדולים לקטנים, ואדרבה, לפעמים יכולים הקטנים לפעול עוד יותר

What you seem to be thinking of is a Chabad kiddush, where there's usually more Smirnoff involved. If there is parev cholent though, it is indeed a chilul Lubavitch.
That really depends on whether it's שחיטת ליובאוויטש or not.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The main thing is to ensure that there's Bartenura for kiddush as I only drink ליובאוויטשער סחיטה.

So only Tropicana orange juice, never Lakewood or New Square?

I guess the fact that I don't drink any juices or flavored drinks (bar an occasional Heineken) fits well with Parve cholent.

You're right. It's terrible how people can act like this. It's mamesh a chilul Lubavitch.

Iíve seen the term chilul lubavitch/ חילול שם חבד and the term חילול שם הרבי used in conjunction with chilul Hashem, not as a substitute. I donít really see the problem...

Waiting for one of the 7 soferim / stores to own up, apologize, offer recall / testing, advise steps taken to ensure this won't repeat.

In absence of the above, I wouldn't buy anything from any of the merchants.

Another question might be, is your tzitzis and talis kosher ?

I bought my talis, tzitzis and gartel from these merchants. Is my gartel kosher?

When can I sign on for the class action suit? Will anyone who bought anything from Judaica World qualify?

Back in the day there was some sort of silk "custom" gartel controversy/scam.

Do you know that most restaurants and even more factories rely on minority opinions to ensure your food is certified kosher?
I still stand by what I said before that at this point this is an issue which boils down to consumer awareness, and it's not limited to סת''ם.

This is in response to Yehuda57 from 11:56pm. For some reason it's not allowing me to quote.
