R Moshe Shapiro addresses kiruv organizations


Matzav

Nearly 50 participants from such organizations as Arachim, Lev L'achim, Nefesh Yehudi, and Hidabroot participated in the 2-day event (December 1-3) that included an electrifying address by Hagaon Harav Moshe Schapiro. Following his one-hour address that was a call to action to intensify efforts to be "mekarev levavos," Harav Schapiro fielded questions on kiruv for nearly two hours. Menachem Lubinsky, who represented Horizons/EJF called the conference "an unprecedented show of unity amongst all the major kiruv organizations." Prior to Dr. Abdi's address, the group saw a riveting video on a woman saved from a brutal life in an Arab village by Lev L'Achim. The woman, whose child was also saved, was taken to a shelter operated by the organization and she is now well on the way towards becoming an Orthodox Jewess. Thanks to a grant from EJF, Lev L'Achim has stepped up its efforts to extricate the Jewish women from a horrific life with their Arab husbands. Dozens of women have already been rescued.[...]

    "Menachem Lubinsky, who represented Horizons/EJF called the conference "an unprecedented show of unity amongst all the major kiruv organizations."

    This is very incomprehensible. How and why is it that a person like Mr. Lubinsky (ok, once he may have been a "rabbi" when he worked for Agudath Israel of America as it's spokesman) who owns and runs a very high-priced PR company known as LUBICOM Marketing Consultin that is paid top dollar by EJF to do it's bidding and global publicity work, now becomes it's spokesman in chief in the company of notable rabbis and important holy organizations?

    Is it that Rabbi Tropper comes across as to frenzied and demanding as he often insults and condescends to his audiences and it's therefore safe for EJF to have Mr. Lubinsky come forth and give his sweet-talk about sweet nothings?
