    Earlier today, Chai Nissan, news broke that a Lubavitch Shlucha was being given an honor, that contradicts the Rebbe’s well-known views.

    Minister of Culture and Sport MK Miri Regev, Chairman of the Committee on Symbolic and Ceremonial Affairs, announced Sunday to a Shlucha of Nepal that she has been chosen to light a torch at the annual ceremony closing Memorial Day events and opening ‘Hei Iyar’.

    Minister Miri Regev said following the announcement, “I am pleased to announce my decision to select [the Shlucha] to bear a torch… the Chabad Shlucha in Kathmandu, Nepal, symbolizes the concern for others, warm hospitality and love of the Jewish People that characterize the holy work of Chabad Houses around the world.”

    Of course, the announcement of the Minister Miri Regev seems to have been in good faith, nonetheless we feel that it is incumbent upon the Shlucha to decline this offer.

    In connection to this announcement, we are sharing a letter signed by a group of Lubavitch Rabbonim of Eretz Yisroel in 5771, disapproving of a Lubavitcher who planned on lighting a torch in the official ‘Hei Iyar’ celebration.

    In the letter, they wrote, “we are announcing that the participation of one of the Chabad Chassidim in the ceremony whose content and spirit are foreign to the spirit of Yisrael Saba, is in his private opinion and in no way in the name of Chabad emissaries and Chabad Chassidim.”

    At ChabadInfo.com we are hoping that as a Shlucha of the Rebbe, she will not accept this so-called “honor”, which so clearly stands opposed to the views of the Meshale’ach, the Rebbe, and of course, the Torah.
