The person quoted is a lubavicher, as a matter of fact he was the Rebbe's rov..
funny as I heard that he is the one who gave that psak ( just what I heard growing up )

I don't want to sound like a kofer, but not all of his psakim are binding for every lubavitcher.
Contrary to public belief,  there is no Rov of lubavitch
Hence the answer to this
I believe most chasidim don’t toivel plastic. Someone just told me that in Lubavitch you do toivel. Is that correct? What’s the reason?
Is this
I don't believe there is a universal Chabad psak. It depends which Rov you ask.

I specifically didn't say about his psak, I was told about what he did personally.

Very interesting/unique letter. Quite a הוראה of how to turn everything into something connected to עבודת השם.

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

Taking Rafi to NYC for his B"M in a few weeks on his birthday on Sunday and then his first aliya in the Rebbe's room on Monday.

What's the protocol for things to do? I requested an aliya, but that's about it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Back in my day, we had to use family connections to get it guaranteed. I can't imagine much has changed.

who’s the gabbai there? Still Zev Katz? I would expect things to be quieter over the summer when so many go to the “country” as long as it’s not a big day in Chabad like 3, 12 or 13 of Tamuz.

Yes, that's the plan for Sunday. Do I wear a Kapota on Sun or Mon? Do I try to do some sort of seuda there with random people there?

Some people wear a kapota whenever they go to the Ohel.

In any event you can always consult @Yehuda57's website for all kapota related questions.

פע. This thread is titled ask a LUBAVITCHER anything! Since when do Lubavitchers ascribe to the term "random people"?

We are all a world of our own, helping other world's be better, and nothing what we do or where we go is random. Our choice's in those places or moment's, are בחירה.

Obviously nothing is random to the one above. But he is the one that directs us to seemingly random places and people.
