Commercialization of the Revolution, Part II - Lessons from the Evangelicals

As we ponder ways to spread the light of Rebbe, the Revolution and the RRRR, it may be instructive to look at some false, yet successful, competitors.

Imagine the Possibilities...

"But what is it about the evangelical "product" that makes it so desirable? Any number of scholars have noted that, in recent years, it has been the churches that demand the most of people -- tithing, bowing to firm doctrines, observing strict rules of conduct -- that have grown the fastest. There seems to be something in our nature that requires from religion not just feel-good spirituality but strong moral direction. We are willing to make sacrifices to live by the dictates of a religiously grounded truth.
Mr. Twitchell manages to reduce this profound idea to the dictates of basic consumer theory. Sacrifice, he says -- not least, tithing -- signifies value. The more you sacrifice, the more you visibly value the product for which you are giving something up, and the more you show other people that you value it, too. "Why do true believers sometimes puncture themselves, walk on their knees until they bleed, fast until they are skeletal or join a monastery and go mum?" Mr. Twitchell asks. "Brand allegiance."

Rebbe asked me to correct an earlier Post, in which one of Rebbe's closest Talmidim accidentally wrote that we will all be meeting with Rebbe in the year Taf Taf, on Yom Kippur. As Rebbe explained, we will not be meeting on Yom Kippur, but rather Tisha B'Av, which will be a Yom Tov at the time of Moshiach. So, to clarify, we will be meeting:

When: The Year Taf Taf, Tisha B'Av morning, 10:00 AM

Where: Shaar HaMizrach

Hillulla with Rebbe

I just spoke to Rebbe, who asked me to make the Following Announcement:

Please Join Rebbe, the Shiur and the rest of Klal Yisrael at a Hillulla for Rav Shlomo Carlebach TZ"L

When: Sunday, October 28th, 5:30pm

Where: The Rubin Shul, YU


Road Trip?

I think a road trip to visit Rabbi Yaakov, the Chief Rabbi of Nova Scotia (f'k'a "Rabbi Jeff" / Minister of Agriculture) is in order.

Or maybe we should take a ferry, with Rebbe, George Washington style

Quiet Desperation...

Welcome to my world. When the final battle begins, please pull me out from under my rock, together with the rest of the machine gun fodder, so that I don't miss all the fun and gore.
