Vav Tishrei

There was a כנס ארצי today, and they handed out my article...the first one I've written and 'published' in Hebrew. Mind you, it's not copyright, but still. (And shehecheyanu- I never thought that I would actually write in Hebrew the way I can in English.)

The title is 'הפיכת מבט', and I'll leave you all to guess the topic.

Anyways, this was my mazel tov for today. A little overexcited, but whatever.

No, being around Israelis helped my Hebrew. And learning all the sichot in laha"k in grade twelve (that was a big step). I used to be able to learn a Yiddish sicha and only look up two words per page, but with laha"k, it kind of fell away. Doesn't really matter, though- in Israel no one learns in Yiddish.

Okay, I'm uploading it...shoot me.
I know it's a controversial piece, but I got the bracha of someone I respect to write it, and that's good enough for me.

You can fight it out with me here, I've got my weapons.
But if posting it helps spread the idea, and eventually changes something in the system, then it's worth the fight. And the insults. And the flack.

I think that the more Chabadnikim start seeing things this way, and changing the way the system works, the better off the next generation- starting now- will be.

P.S.- I have not told anyone who is not Chabad that I wrote this, because I don't want to tell them the topic. Please keep this piece in Chabad as much as possible- no need to hang our dirty laundry for all to see.* (Yes, I know this is the net. I also know that with the exception of a few, who don't read Hebrew well, most of us on here are Chabadnikim.**)

Disclaimer: I claim not to be perfect, only to try my best. Although I am not guilty of Facebook, I certainly am guilty of wasting too much time online (partly as a result of working on the computer, but that isn't an excuse).



*For this reason, though I certainly wanted to, I have not and will not post this piece on my blog.
**-Oops, existwhere!- not Chabad, and reads Hebrew!...Oh, well, I trust you'll be mature and respect this.
***Why are you reading down here? Where was there a reference to three asteriks in the text?!
