1. I guess it is better than NK joins Pals
ma nishma ,   modiin   (11.22.12)
between the two, Netura Karta should join the Palestinians. I vote we should give them back their 'orleh' from their circumcision and let them be goyim. At least she does try to have more Jews killed.
2. Ashkenazi not French-Canadian
Alex   (11.22.12)
According to several sources her mother is also Jewish from Ukraine, who settled in Canada.
3. Chabad would denounce her if she were not a source of cash
Mea   (11.22.12)
What amazes me is how people go hat in hand to Chabad for some sort of recognition when in fact Chabad would call her filth for her lack of modesty if she were not famous and able to be used as a tool. Why doesn't Paula go help a Reform group or better yet a Jewish Federation?
4. I think the war moved her Jewish roots
Ezra ,   San Diego USA   (11.22.12)
This war as moved many of us, stirred our human hearts for HaShem. She's not the only one. G-d bless her and protect her always.
5. 3 Mea Habad is very tolerant.

But, she lived in the french ghetto of Manitoba.
9. This woman
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (11.22.12)
looks like a genuine hungarian gypsy.
10. Judging from most of these posts
American-Israeli Jew ,   World   (11.22.12)
Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Some of these posters are the carbuncles on the rear-end of humanity and the only way they can feel superior is to smear and besmirch others. And its way more prevalent among Jews than among goyim circles I've seen. Selah on that for a while.
11. # 3 - a Reform group or better yet a Jewish Federation?
split ,   US   (11.22.12)
Why doesn't she help any Canadian or US charity for that matter why does it have to be Jewish ? ,... Your selfishness and lack of connection to the rest of society that provided you a safe haven and means to improve your life makes my jaw drop to the floor every time any of you starts running your mouth on Jewish subject ,...
12. 9 - Heheh ,...
snag ,   USA   (11.22.12)
She looked like real Jewess prior to her nose job and surgeries - Google on images, 'abdul nose job' and check it out ,...

Chabad never turn anybody away rich or poor, religious or non religious. If your Jewish Chabad wants to help and they do not try and make you like them. Not all haredi movements are like NK even if they wear the same sort of clothes.

zionist forever   (11.22.12)
To Chabad all that matters is your Jewish they will reach out to the rich and most secular Jews equally as much as the reach out to the richest and most religious.
15. Chabad
Edouard ,   Montreal Canada   (11.23.12)
Chabad is what a Jewish sect was 2000years ago They started to adore a rabbi call Jesus Then declar that he was the meshia In few years Chabad will declar openly that mr chnerson was the mashia And we will have an other branch of the jewish tree that will grow and grow away from us They are no different than any other sect Sorry

If that was the case you would't have poor and neglected Jews but you have them in numbers larger than any country in civilised world despite the billions donated by Germans to take care of them ,...

sharon ,   nyc usa   (11.23.12)
It makes you look very small to talk about anyone in such a belittling way. lo yaffe.
18. #10 - You are SO right
sharon ,   nyc usa   (11.23.12)
I agree--the vulgar, condescending tone of several of these posts is really ugly. shame.
19. good for her, unashamed of her heritage
martin ,   uk   (11.23.12)
unlike some other highly known jewish personalities
20. #7
Mitch ,   USA   (11.23.12)
You are unbeleivably ignorant! Her father is a Syrian Jew and that is the origin of her last name.. just fyi
21. Istvan #8: Nem cigany, zsido!
Mikey ,   SomeWhere OverHere   (11.23.12)
And she looks plenty Jewish too. Her father is Syrian Jewish by way of Brazil, then Canada, mother is Ashknenazi
22. 16 - I beg your pardon I was going to say ,...
split ,   US   (11.24.12)
despite the billions extorted from German and US taxpayer in last few decades ,...
23. @3 clearly you know nothing about Chabad...
and further you are bitter about it. Why don't you go visit Chabad and see how cool they really are!
24. To # 5 Tolerant of who or what?
Stan ,   Israel   (11.24.12)
Where I live, the Rabbi of the yishuv is an American Chabadnic. Some years ago the Conservative community requested financial assistance from the local Religious Council to repair a Toral Scroll. His reply was "You are not Jews" So much for Chabad and tolerance.
25. To # 15 You are right, and you are wrong.
Stan ,   Israel   (11.24.12)
You are 100% correct that Chabad is exactly the same as the beginnings of Christianity. You are wrong in thinking that some time in the future they will declare him the Mashiah. Israel is full of posters, stickers and flags claiming their Rebbe is MELECH MASHIAH (messiah and king) (I can send photographs to anyone who wants to see them)
26. interesting
J.Gad ,   Israel   (11.25.12)
i thought abdul was muslim roots lol
27. @26 u probably think "Baumgarten" is German roots!
man o man yo'racist stupid is showin! Cover that thang up right away...sho' is ugly!
28. Chabad is all about..the feel good business
Al   (11.25.12)
they have very little to do with true Judaism. They make you feel good. They will travel to the ends of the earth to bring a Jew a dreidel. a latke, a passover seder, however where it really counts they are a no show. How many of their young people in Israel actually do army service? The answer, precious few. They dont do the things that really count, They dont pony up when they really have to. In total they, like most of the 'orthoquack' are full of it. They wouldn't save their own ass when push comes to shove. Yes they are that useless.
29. Chabad has gone off the map.
Itzchak ,   Israel   (12.19.12)
Their dead messiah theology is disturbing and halachically forbidden.

i am a very very secular jewish woman, reform judaism. i have been to chabad many and multiple times dressed as i wish with streaked hair, even a leather tight skirt and blazer. i have also attended their functions in tee shirts and jeans....not sleeves! I HAVE NEVER EVER BEEN ASKED TO LEAVE AND NOT A SINGLE CHABAD RABBI, WOMAN OR MAN EVER DENIGRATED ME OR MADE ME FEEL UNWELCOME. and i am not rich at all and i give only $25 per year to chabad. they have always treated me with the untmost respect and welcomed me at all times. what you say in your post is a bold faced lie. most people who support chabad with cash or go to their functions or events go there dressed in very modern manner and style. they are not rich and some don't even donate at all. but everyone is always made to feel wanted and welcomed. reform judaism has no soul in my opinion and I AM A REFORM JEW AND BELONG TO A REFORM SYNAGOGUE BECAUSE I AM COMPLETELY SECULAR. CHABAD ALL OVER THE WORLD WELCOMES ALL JEWS AND, YES, CHRISTIANS AS WELL INTO THEIR HOMES FOR SHABBAT AND OTHER EVENTS. so, please, get off your ceremonial chair and get a clue.
