TRS: Developing...

Before the Rosh was officially Lubavitch he informed his yeshiva hanhala that he'd be in 770 for shavuos, not in Lakewood. They cried, "But matan Torah is in Lakewood!" The Rosh responded, "Yes, but Moshe Rabbeinu is in 770."

This post could have been titled "Why Modeh isn't in BMG or 770."
The joke that goes around every shul of the One True Path (Young Israel this week) come shvuos time:

HQBH went around to all the nations to offer them the Torah.
He came to Boro Park. They ask BP:"what does it say?"
HQBH:v'lo s'chachashu ish es amiso
BP: Not for us

He came to flatbush
FB:What does it say?
HQBH: lo sachmod
not for us

He came to Washington Heights
WH:what does it say?
HQBH: al pi hatorah asher yorucha ...
WH: we can't do that

In Williamsburg
Willy:voos zugst durten?
HQBH: Lo signov
Willy: nee meh toon nisht aza zach. Honesty? ah fraggeh!

in Crown Heights
CH:What's it say?
HQBH: vayamos sham Moshe
CH: yechi

in lakewood
FW: vuhs shtait?
HQBH: sheishes yamim taaseh melachtecha
FW: CHAS VESHALOM

The other version is: But matan Torah is in Lakewood!" The hieligeh Rosh reponded, "True, but Koballas Hatorah is in 770."

and this is why part of me still thinks the Rosh is cool.

But too radical for my tasted.

ex-Mossad-I like that version a lot better! :)
