QuoterrmoderatorMoishe3rd: All you have done on this thread is essentially demonstrate that the complaints of the parents about the attitude and purpose of "Jewish Outreach" programs run by Aish and Chabad are correct. Whatever else you might imagine you have done, is just that, in your imagination. Aish, Jeff Seidel and Chabad have hurt Jewish families through their re

I apologize. I was under the impression that we were having a discussion. I was attempting to clarify my point of view. Evidently, I failed. Be well.

QuoterrmoderatorMoishe3rd: You are attempting to parse your language to avoid admitting the purpose and underlying objectives of "Jewish outreach." "Returning"? Returning to what? G-d. Torah.

Oy. I should have waited. Sorry... What the heck. I am here... QuoterrmoderatorThanks Yasmin. .... Having said that, you can see from Moishe3rd's posts that he exhibits a mindset intolerant of other beliefs and essentially ethnocentric, even when it comes to Jews from other denominations (e.g. Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist congreagations).

Reading my previous post, I realize that I am being too convoluted and not addressing the specific point involved. rrmoderator and others believe that Jeff Seidel's (along with Aish and Chabad) behavior is deceptive and harmful because he (they) has a hidden agenda of getting non-observant Jews to turn into Jews who practice Judaism in the same manner that he (they) practice it.

Sigh... Well, I do believe I am shouting into the proverbial well, but I shall give it one last try... You are positing an Orthodox Jewish world and a non-Orthodox Jewish world that does not exist. The beliefs you have about Orthodox Judaism bear no relationship to reality. If you scan this thread, you will see the ordinary comments of those who are not Torah observant Jews regarding those

Sorry, just a bit more. I went to the website you provided, thank you very much, for "Jeff Seidel." I saw his video on inviting young Jews from the Western Wall to celebrate Shabbos. I thoroughly approve. It is posted on the internet EXACTLY what his intentions are and why he is doing this. How can you claim this man is part of a "cult." Besides which, no

However, I still fail to comprehend why anyone would think Aish had cult like tendencies and how it has "torn families apart."
