Rebbe Moshiach Concert by MBD and Shweky

As noted in the previous post, MBD and Shweky performed in a concert in honor of the Rebbe Melech haMoshiach.

I just saw a picture on Vos is Neiaz that shows that this was not just in the posters for the event, but was featured prominently. Look at that tarp on the ground, with a picture of a crown, and the word משיח in Hebrew. I really have to wonder whether Rav Ovadiah Yosef was apprised of this important aspect of this concert when they requested his imprinteur, or whether there was manipulation. But his son, Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, was present at the concert! How could he be unaware of it? Perhaps they just do not see this belief in a dead messiah, or that the Rebbe is not dead, as a big deal.

Sigh. As a Lubvaticher this makes me very sad. But Lubavitch in Israel has allowed this to become the norm. I know I'll get flamed for this, but you can support what they do there without supporting them saying the Rebbe was Moshiach. Just because you go to a concert doesn't mean you drink the kool aid.
