He's focused on non-frum travelers retirees, cruisers, yacht, sailors...

I know this might tinkle some feathers but I would not be surprised if some Shluchim feel that they do not want to promote the concept of vacation.
The idea of vacation to many in Lubavitchers is looked as not a proper thing to do. I am sure many other communities have similar value system.

I'd be shocked if this represents more than 2% of shluchim. I don't even think it's half of that.

Far more likely they don't want frum people in their Chabad Houses scaring off the locals. This is a contentious argument among shluchim, with some encouraging frum people to come to their events/minyanim and others making it clear that frum people are not welcome. Of course that has to do with what they feel their mission is and how they feel is the best way attain that goal.
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.

And years of personal experience in the matter as well. Likely seeing events both ways.

- On Sukkos, carry around a sleeping bag and pillow and ask if they have slept in the sukkah yet.
