Aussie Echo - Alav Hashalom

Guest Post from Melbourne Chabadnik


Originally, we, especially Chabadniks, expected Aussie Echo to develop into a strong voice in the community. However, except for a few posts which got the crowd out and involved, it was pretty lame and simply served up material which it copied and pasted from other sites.

So, no great loss, but really a pity that it didn't bloom. Heaven knows that the Frum community neds every single 'voice' it can raise..

There is definitely room for another enterprising blogger to establish noisy and clear Shofar for the community. (I doubt that AJN Watch would have any objection.)

So where are all those chaps who have opinions on everything every Shabbos in Shul? Here's your chance to be heard on the other 6 days of the week.


  1. Melb Chabadnik complains that AE "simply served up material which it copied and pasted from other sites".

    That is more-or-less what "echoes" do!

  2. It's pretty rare for any Chabad propaganda tool to fade into the night. What happened?

  3. Does it have anything to do with this?

    Rabbonim Come Out Strongly Against Chareidi Internet

    December 11, 2009


    Eretz Yisroel - Maranan V’Rabanan Gedolei HaDor Shlita today, erev Shabbos Chanukah, are coming out strongly against the dangers of chareidi internet sites. The rabbonim are calling on the tzibur not to view the sites, not to “cooperate” in any way, including advertising, the daily HaMevaser reports.
    The rabbonim express their fears surrounding the internet’s penetration into the Jewish home, trampling the safeguards of modesty and Jewish life. They blame the chareidi websites for the “recheilus” that takes place along with the “motzei shem ra”, “lies” and “abominations R”L”.
    In the letters appearing in chareidi newspapers today, the rabbonim call on the tzibur to distance themselves from their spiritual danger, as well as to condemn it in every form and to remove it from our lives.
    The kol korei elaborates, explaining that sites are labeled “chareidi” but bring unacceptable content to the tzibur, tarnishing the name of the chareidi community.
    The rabbonim add that the kovod of rabbonim is compromised, and the situation is simply ‘hefker’ and as such, it mustn’t be permitted to continue as it exists today.
    The rabbonim are calling for cutting off all cooperation with chareidi websites.

  4. This is great news! Good riddance to the chillul Hashem he made!

  5. What chilul Hashem?
    Boring people ain't a CH
