• Maor Initiates Petition Against Youtube

    As ChabadInfo.com reported yesterday, Rabbi Chanoch Chaskind, director of Maor, which provides daily videos of the Rebbe for adults and children alike, received a message from Youtube informing him that hey removed one of the organization’s many daily videos due to ‘hate speech’. Now you can make your voice heard against reckless Youtube censorship • Full Story

    This week, Maor received a shocking message from Youtube:

    “Your videos #326 & #327 (posted around six years ago!), titled “The Rebbe’s View on Same-Gender ‘Marriages’” was removed from the Maor – Daily Rebbe video channel on the grounds of violating Youtube’s hate speech policy!”

    Some background: In 2015, Rabbi Chanoch Chaskind established Maor, making the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s messages even more accessible than ever before, on the social media platforms that we use constantly.

    The Daily Rebbe video is Maor’s first project; every morning over 21K people receive a 2-minute clip from the Rebbe.

    In their message to Maor, Youtube claims that their website is a “safe place for all.” If a video of the Rebbe’s teachings are blocked, is it indeed a “safe place for all”? Is Youtube “safe” for a Jewish individual who would like to access information that may not be politically correct, but is the truth that the world so desperately needs to hear?

    “Hate speech” or “Care Speech”?

    Furthermore, these clips (from the Rebbe’s public address of Purim 5786, March 25, 1986) featured the Rebbe speaking about same-gender relationships — choosing to contribute to the painful and emotionally-loaded national debate on the subject. Speaking in his gentle, compassionate and caring manner, the Rebbe proposed a humane therapeutic approach, which takes into account the seriousness of the discussion while remaining cognizant of the importance of upholding the self-respect and self-esteem of men and women who sought his guidance. 

    Is this “hate speech”?

    We think this is the polar opposite. It’s the voice of love, care, and compassion that refuses to see the person for his or her externalities, and chooses to focus instead on helping him or her reach inner harmony between their moral-religious identity and lifestyle choices.


    Let Youtube hear your voice!
