I guess what I mean is that there are official Chabads in touristy places that don't seem to want to have anything to do with tourists and there are some that are very helpful for tourists.

Whereas the unofficial Chabads in touristy places are specifically there for tourists. They may be targeted for Israeli backpackers, but they can still be very helpful for any frum tourist.
Fair enough.

Is this just for 'Chabad Houses' - i.e. those that offer services to travellers, or chabad shuls/minyanim as well?

For example - https://bethisraelchabad.org/ in Norwalk, CT.

OK, removed.
There's no question (in my mind at least) he fits the criteria to be on this list

Will certain hotels/resorts/restaurants or any other facilities or practitioners be asked first if they grant permission to be discussed/rated/reviewed or listed on a DDF or any other forum?! This just sounds absurd IMHO.


The rumor was that he was getting a minyan, while the official Chabad in Maui wasn't.
This list is meant to be a resource for travelers, why on Earth would one want to exclude such valuable information?!

This is not a "blacklist" even if certain people may perceive it as such.
This list isn't meant to be a philosophical discussion or to be putting a label on anyone. If I were visiting Maui I'd want to know about this place.

...Just my 2 cents.

These are all official ones, at some unique locales.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Oops, I didn't watch it and didn't realize the question was related to the video.
There are probably some in other sensitive places as well. For example, I don't know if he's still there now, but i know there used to be someone in Izmir Turkey who IIRC was not listed.

I gave up trying to figure out what they were saying before it reached him, but now that you've mentioned, I've attempted to listen. Couldn't discern quite a few. I see there classmates, guys that used to frequent (or infrequent) my Shabbos table when they were in 770, as well as a younger generation. Quite amazing. If anyone can come up with the list of names/places mentioned there, would be appreciated.

Seems like many of them could have benefited from speech classes in yeshiva ;)
