When someone converts to Chabad they have to dip in mikvah 770 times and straight from there they have to do 770 somersaults on the floor of 770.

For some it takes multiple attempts before the conversion is complete.
Unless they are recruited

Yes. They do it at many different occasions. Usually starts after a half a bottle of vodka though

IDK, I'm not a consumer, but I would guess was consumed until עלות השחר and will be consumed after צאת הכוכבים this evening.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I think he's trying to understand why vodka was brought up in reference to a clip of Avinu Malkeinu being sung.

I always thought that Chabad uses OBM instead of AH. If so, what's pshat in this (both @ExGingi's post and the Anash site)?

Apparently, the Rebbe initially made the גזירה on 3 cups which total a רביעית.

I always laugh when I see the term cups used.

It reminds me of the shidduch call I got where the lady on the other end asked me " does he keep the Rebbes Horaah of arba kosos?"

To which I was truthfully able to answer: " I have never sen him drink more than Arba Kosos".

Enlighten me?

I don't think Chabad has any preference between the terms. I've seen them all used interchangeably.

Well that explains it... Thanks.

Always thought that OBM was the only one they used.

Depends on the crowd. Don't see a lot of AH for English-speaking, Chabad House crowds.

AH is Hebrew
OBM is English
OBE is British

Who is this guy called Chabad that uses expressions or acronyms and has preferences? I might be interested to meet him (or her).

I have noticed they don't ust "St." (as in Saint) or "San"to refer to cities most of the time, but there are exceptions, and instead use " S. ".
