Chabager

Banner 1 edit

Facebook has a group called Seven plus Three: Chassidus Chabad for the Ger. Here is its mission statement:

The goal of this group is to welcome those who come from afar to embrace the Torah and bring them under the wings of the shechina, and to learn with them, the wisdom of Chabad Chassidus and to the Moshe Rabbeinu of our generation, the Lubavitcher Rebbe Nasi Doreinu, and that we, along with those who Ger with us, should farbreng with the Rebbe Nasi Doreinu at the coming of Moshiach may it happen now

The “Moshe Rabbeinu of our generation.”

And if you’re wondering who is running this group, notice that the admins of this group are Rabbi Katz’s top disciples:

Makes you wonder what the game plan is here. What is the agenda? Get these ex-Christian gerrings hooked on kabbalah and mysticism? Trade the New Testament in for Torah, swap Jesus for the Rebbe haMoshiach, and substitute Rabbi Katz for Paul? It would be a perfect marriage—Messianic Chabad Judaism and the gerrings. Since Katzianity is well on its way to becoming a messianic cult, and with Chabad’s heavy involvement with gerrings and Noahides, it certainly seems plausible.

For the benefit of my readers, and any gerrings out there who get their panties in a wad when I talk about this stuff, allow me to explain.

First of all, I am not anti-Chabad. As I have said before, the Chabad have done many positive things, bringing many non-observant Jews back into Torah not the least. Certainly there are divisions between the Chabad and other Jewish Orthodox groups, but that is neither my business nor my concern.

What is my concern is how Chabad has interfered with the Noahide Movement. Yes, I know the Rebbe gave them a mandate to spread knowledge of the Seven Laws. I also know that there is a difference between spreading knowledge and trying to lead the movement. Running the movement and telling Noahides what to do is not Chabad’s job, particularly among the moshiachist faction of Chabad, who are a major source of the problem.

You see, the vast majority (if not all) of the gerrings are ex-Christians. They were weaned on a steady diet of spirituality and religion, and like the proverbial Jew who goes into the mikvah clutching a dead insect, the gerrings cannot seem to let go of their idolatrous ideas, to get it into their heads that religion has nothing to do with the Noahide Law. They think that the way to keep the Noahide Law is through worship, prayer, and keeping the mitzvot that are commanded only to Israel. Now, I’m not against worship and prayer, mind you, but those are things a person can do as an individual. They are not part of the Noahide Code. Social Justice is the focus of Noahide law, not religion. And in their monomaniacal focus on religion, the halakha of Dinim is what the gerrings ignore.

The addiction to religion is the cause célèbre of the gerrings. Like Christians, they follow the extreme minority opinion of a couple of rabbis. Like Christians, they think that only they have “salvation.” Like Christians, only they know the “truth.” Like Christianity, which theologically interprets myriads of Tanach  passages as being about Jesus, gerrings find “ger” in everything. “Oh, that’s about ger!” To the gerring, being a Noahide is all about a “relationship” with God. They utterly fail to grasp that this is not what Hashem prioritizes. The gerrings do not get “ger.”

“[As for] the New Moon and Sabbath, and your calling of convocations, I cannot abide mendacity with solemn assembly. My soul detests your New Moons and your appointed times; they have become a burden upon Me; I am weary of bearing them. When you spread your hands in prayer, I will hide My eyes from you; even if you were to intensify your prayer, I will not listen…Learn to do good, seek justice, vindicate the victim, render justice to the orphan, take up the grievance of the widow.”—Isaiah 1:13–15, 17.

In their misguided attempt to be “religious,” the gerrings skirt violating the fundamental Noahide law of idolatry. They are creating a religion out of the Noahide Code. Yes, I know that they deny it is a religion. They say it is a “relationship.” But isn’t this exactly what the Christians claim about Christianity?

    So then, how would you like procede?

    Would you prefer that none of those, you so-eagerly-seek to compete with, respond? To simply leave you to your blogging; your soap-box of slander and distress? Or would you like a response? Someone to bicker with? Would you enjoy a a battle of wit and theological supposition? It’s not likely you will be given the attention. Though…
    Perhaps (G-d forbid) for a minimal fee on your part, I could be happy to dedicate one hour a week, to a private debate. To being your verbal punching bag, in the name of therapy. Perhaps you could let it go. If you view R. David Katz, and a non-Jewish CB”D fb-group, among your largest frustrations, you may consider international headlines to be more rewarding.
    The bottom line is, your banter is far from just, sorely presumptuos, and frankly lacks integrity. And at best is only a defamation of your own character.

    If I can help you become more settled I will. Otherwise, it’s considered good bad-publicity. Mere entertainment value. And being a supporting actor in your production will find new direction. B”H

  2. It’s a shame there are so many distractions to implementing the seven laws, to doing what one can to follow God’s commands to us Gentiles. It’s a shame so much time is being wasted to symbolically leaving the world of the normal non-Jew to become a faux-migrant in a Torah based Israel that doesn’t yet exist rather than just delving into the seven categories of law for the descendants of Noah and the wealth of teachings available in Torah for any human. I don’t think the individuals that call themselves ger are bad or evil. I don’t agree with their teachers on Torah grounds. I do think they’ve created something bad. The individuals may have good character but… wow, I could write a whole other article showing how there are avenues for peace, but too much emotion has been invested. I hope the end of all this is growth and good because right now… it didn’t look good at all.

    I disagree that religion has nothing to do with the Noahide Law. “Piety, repentance, righteousness, and reward of a hereafter are religious concepts. They have meaning in a religious context only” (The Divine Code by Rabbi Moshe Weiner, Ask Noah International, p 43)

    Very uneducated. You posted a page about yarmulke and you think the “noachide ger”, movement is the ger sect in Judaism. Those are called ger or sometimes gur chassidim. You bashed a fb page you know nothing about and claim it’s moshiach it because of chabad. Some of those admins are not Katz students they just did their own research. Dude… You made a good out of yourself but thanks for the Publicity!
