What does it say about society/politics that the author doesn't event think to suggest that Trump did it because it is the right thing to do.
Does Trump ever give off the impression that he's doing things 'because it's the right thing to do'?

That interview with Dershowitz really changed my view on this. Thanks to whoever posted it.
Where's the link? I'd like to hear it.

Nah. Their definition seems much narrower.
We can just as easily say that you and they are all Ponovezers and just don't know it.

Regarding myself, I am probably a more authentic Ponovezher than many (not the Yeshiva, the town ;)).

Regarding the rest of world Jewry, why would anyone say so? What Ponovezher הנהגות or תורות are becoming more widespread, adapted, or accepted amongst Jews from all backgrounds?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Rabbi Balkany noted that organizers of the annual Kinus Hashluchim, for the first couple of years, refused repeated requests to have Tehillim said for Rubashkin’s plight at the mega-event which draws thousands of Lubavitcher chasidim from all over the world every year.


I'm surprised with Chabad.  Any of you guys want to defend them?
