  1. Oorah may be a fantastic organization, I have no idea. But I cringe every year when this comes on the air. WABC? Is that really necessary? I wonder if that was paid for with tzeddaka money…

  2. im on live and it rocks !!!!! GO OORAH GO OORAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Right on Jimbo. This program is directed to the Frum community, why on earth dose it have to be heard on 50,000 WATS in more then 40 states?? The things I heard last year made me cringe as well.

    I think the lcsw is there.

  6. judy franco from 101.5 fm talk show host became frum from oorah and she quit radio bec of hashem wow oorah must be amazing she gave up her professional job that she had for 18 years wow wow

  7. Oorah did not pay WABC any money. WABC donated air time to Oorah for the radio-thon, they took it as a tax-deductible contribution.

  8. Judy Franco did NOT become frum through Oorah – rather through Torah Links’ Moishe Lichtinstein who only recently started working for Oorah

  9. Im just wondering how much of this Tzedaka money actually goes to Kiruv work if they spend so so much money on Marketing & advertising if someone could plse explain

  10. They bought 2 camp sites, an office building complex, torah spot in staten island, torah mates (a clever take off of partners in torah) employ scores of men and women, dole out huge amounts of tuition and camp scholarship, shabbatons throughout the year, arba minim etc etc etc and Yahoo Mintz the brains behind the mosad lives like a pauper when could rightfully take a hefty six digit salary!!!!

  11. For those of you that are wondering if the donations to Oorah are used for marketing and advertising IT ISN’T. The money for advertising and marketing comes from the Curby call service and Kars 4 Kids.

    So let me understand, if a mosad spends $25,000 to make $35,000, that’s better? Every Mosad has to spend money on “advertising!” Whether it’s mailings, posters, ads in Yated, HaModia, etc. (no, the papers do not give them a free ad or “mosad discount!”) Oorah’s ads are just more interesting and eye-catching. That’s exactly what they want, exactly what every mosad wishes it had!

    Too bad Eliyahu Mintz isn’t from Shevet Yosef. He wouldn’t have to worry about all the ayin horas that jealous guys like you create.

  13. #20 why criticisim????
    was just asking no need for the bashing comment Im just trying to understand that if i see so much advertising going on it must cost hefty money im sure you agree!!
