I'm not sure of you are being serious or not. That's a real sign correct?

To clarify, you agree with the sign or with the ad? Your pet peeve is pro or anti the Ani Maamin Foundation?

It's interesting because supposedly Rav Matisyahu gave a haskama to AMF. http://animaamin.org/news/about/haskomos/

To clarify, I have always been extremely uncomfortable with the ani maamin foundation. You can say that they are a pet peeve of mine, in as much that I have long wondered why no one is standing up to him...
Today I was pleasantly surprised to see the sign so I posted it here, I have no info on the details behind the sign of the supposed haskama of R matisyahu. The organization could've easily been misrepresented to him at one time.

This excerpt from r Mattisyohu's "haskama" explains it.
Quote
אחר כל דברי תהילות ותשבחות מהגאון כבוד מוהר ר שלמה אליהו מילר שליטא באתי כיהודה ועוד לקרא לחזק ידי הרב דוד ספירמאן שליטא

They have a whole list of Kaskamos with signatures.

Rav Shmuel Kaminetzky, Rav Shlomo Miller, Rav Matisyahu Salomon, Rav Avraham Chaim Levine, Rav Moshe Mordchai Lowy and Rav Dovid Nojowitz

Maybe the same way Rav Shlomo Miller 'tricked' him into giving a haskama, someone else 'tricked' him into signing this letter.

In matters of emuna no haskoma in the world can change the fundamentals. Theses are deep ingrained feelings and beliefs.
His new mahalach is not the way yiddishe kinder were taught emuna ever, and they won't start on my watch!  ;)

The transmission of emuna is not through chakira and Q&A sessions.  {and I dont mean the ma nishtana!}

No they are not.
 There is a way to transmit emuna to children, it's the way we were taught. And the good news is: It aint broke!

I hate to break it to you but there is now greater awareness than ever that many children are growing up with unadressed emunah issues.
