That elementary (emphasis added):

Quote
אך ביאור הענין על פי מ"ש הרח"ו ז"ל בשער הקדושה [ובע"ח שער נ' פ"ב] דלכל איש ישראל אחד צדיק ואחד רשע יש שתי נשמות דכתיב ונשמות אני עשיתי שהן שתי נפשות נפש אחת מצד הקליפה וסטרא אחרא והיא המתלבשת בדם האדם להחיות הגוף וכדכתיב כי נפש הבשר בדם היא וממנה באות כל המדות רעות מארבע יסודות רעים שבה דהיינו כעס וגאוה מיסוד האש שנגבה למעלה. ותאות התענוגים מיסוד המים כי המים מצמיחים כל מיני תענוג. והוללות וליצנות והתפארות ודברים בטלים מיסוד הרוח. ועצלות ועצבות מיסוד העפר. וגם מדות טובות שבטבע כל ישראל בתולדותם כמו רחמנות וג"ח באות ממנה כי בישראל נפש זו דקליפה היא מקליפ' נוגה שיש בה ג"כ טוב והיא מסוד עץ הדעת טוב ורע:

Could it be that these robocalls are being sent out by the dissenters and they realize that by asaring it everyone will go so they instead seek to make it seem like a Chabad Moshiach event and they hope that would be a more effective deterrent?
And to think that when I posted this I meant it as satire...

 :(

I thought you were serious. It seemed plausible enough.

שאלת תם:

Now that it seems like the event is in the parking lot and not in the stadium, what is the reason being given for urging people not to attend?

There has never been a concert in Lakewood. And by a concert, I mean an event where the main attraction is sitting and watching a singer perform. I don't expect anyone who didn't grow up in this environment to understand where they are coming from and it would be a waste of time to try and explain it. The stadium was only one concern mentioned in the letter.

I am not an outsider, and I understand. The question is just why this is the hill to die on,  with all that goes on in lakewood nowadays. (I don't mean to criticize, disagree, or anything else, as I have the greatest respect for the R"Y and their decision. Just wondering if there's any point anymore in fighting these types of things anymore)

"All that goes in Lakewood nowadays" is not targeted to children and is not wrapped in the veneer of a heilige ma'amid.

Additionally, maybe they're trying the broken window theory. Williamsburg for instance keeps a tough embargo on a lot of minor stuff to avoid larger breaches.

No. Wedding were implicitly excluded from my earlier definition of a concert.

Even the ones with a full blown symphony and the biggest names in Jewish music?

Of you look at the halachos. For a seudas mitzva it’s allowed

Should the L"B event discussion be split into its own thread?
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.
