Where's @ChaimMoskowitz when we need him? The whole argument here against the KK is a "but officer" argument.
I'm not who you think I am.

But in general, as a wise man once said: there are two things in life that you wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole if you know what went into them: hot dogs and a kol korah.

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

One of the great mysteries of life. One day we may observe one in their natural habitat. Until that day arrives the mystery shall live on.
Well, nobody will give that important piece of information for me here, makes me so much more curious. I'll have to spend some precious time next Purim to do the drive to CH and solve that mystery myself.

Either that, or convince some of the the Lubavitchers here to make an AMA thread.

You'll get very different answers about that from a Gezh vs. from a tzugekummener...

Firstly how do I tell apart a Gehza from a Tzugekumener? A Reitzes is probably of course a Gehza but how about A Lazar? (Both remote cousins of mine). Don't tell me the most famous Shliach in the world isn't considered Gehza just because he's a descendent from Yekkes.

For those suggesting that the RYs/RBs who signed didn't see the Kol Korei, etc., I know that they actually had a meeting one night last week regarding this matter.

A meeting about the general issue doesn't mean they saw the language of the KK they signed. Could be they did. I'm not sure which is worse.

The ones who weren't asked to sign had a meeting about not being asked :D

You want to do drugs, do drugs. Just don't complain when people want to stop it.

While I certainly appreciate the permission, I'm not a pot user. (Despite what it may seem like from my posts on this thread).

To be clear, I have no issue with people trying to make their community a better place. Banning doesn't work. This isn't the 60's. Educate.

I hear you, but Lakewood is not South Fl.
