ExGingi: Good morning Dan, how's you day going?

Dan: It's going well, thanks for asking.

ExGingi: Wrong. Bh you woke up, thanks to Hashem as explained in modeh ani and even more in depth in inyanei shel toras hachasidus. If you would understand that sicha properly you would know that one doesn't simply wake up, it's not us who wake up, but rather thanks to the brachas of the rebbe and Hashem's help we wake up.

Ha! They do label their "ads", just not their advertorials...

גופא:

What are people's thoughts?

Does this address the "Shlichus addiction" or lack of proper secular studies?

And

Why are they soliciting business in Crown Heights? Who is their target audience?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I don't think they even know.

CH'ers A) don't want mixed schools and B) aren't interested in paying $21k (before discounts) for preschool.

The people that are fine with mixed schools and that tuition level, don't want the school overridden with "frummies".

They had another "open house in someones house" in CH  a month ago. From what I heard barely a handful of people showed up.

My guess is their target audience in CH are those who would send their kids to Luria.

In response (echo) to the three posters before?

Is it purely a money move (i.e. they need more kids who will pay $21k tuition)? Are they trying to cater to the Chabad-light community (for lack of a better term)?

The forex advertorial was not labeled.

They had another "open house in someones house" in CH  a month ago. From what I heard barely a handful of people showed up.

So many assumptions, I don't even know where to start. So let's start by asking some questions:
  • Are CH'ers "frummies"?
  • Do you really think any "frummies" would even give such a school any consideration, let alone enroll in such a school? When people are on Shlichus, they might be "frummies" (or beyond) and even run such a school and send their own kids there. But in Brooklyn?
  • If they manage to get even one "Frayak" living in CH to pay that kind of tuition, the open house paid for itself in two ways: a. tuition received, and more importantly b. being able to do shlichus work with that family!

I just read the wiki and wonder if the overall Chabad idea is that you wake up in the morning due to the Rebbes Bracha or if that was some kind of joke

Why don't you ask whoever wrote that.

I would also ask whoever wrote that, if he really thinks that @Dan wouldn't start his response with Boruch Hashem.

It was a joke about an extreme look at some of our more extreme Chabad members that would hate the label "extreme" and "Chabad."

It's due to G-d that we wake up. It's due to the Rebbe that it's worth it.
