  1. @editor, while these “musical selichos” may attract some disaffected Yidden that may not have otherwise come to Selichos nonetheless, it seems that the consensus of the Gedolim is that this isn’t the proper way to go. As such, posting about this should be taboo.

    • where did you get the concensus ? What issue of the “Consensus of the Gedolim” Journal was it published?

      You’ll be much more productive worrying about yourself , not others

      Kol Tuv

      • Consensus? Well just most Rabbanim and Rosheo Yeshivah.
        Have YOU never heard a schmooze about it?
        Yest it IS perhaps appropriate for some, but when the outlier becomes the norm….
        And no, The KLAL part of Klal Yisroel includes me worrying about what “others” in the klal find acceptable.

  2. where in shulchan aruch does it discuss taking a guitar
    all my life i got up 530am for the first selichos
    did i like it?
    who cares this is what my father ah did and his father etc
    this is not a feel good religion
    and i do what makes me feel chilled out
    this is sick and not for a heimishe yid with a shtreimel

    • Wow, you’re mamash so frum.
      Gevaalt you’re probably going to be koineh such a lichtigeh place in oilam haba with you’re kana’s and ehrlichkeit.
      Ah git gebentcht Ruhr

  3. The reform movement started by bringing in musical instruments to the Shul. Of course only on weekday . Eventually years later it eas on Shabbos also.

  4. @yossie I disagree with you 1000% this IS a feel good religion. Mitzvos are to be done with tremendous simcha. Just because you serve Hashem in your own unique way, Hashem has no problem with people who serve Him with love and happiness. On the contrary we just read in the Parsha that the churbon happened because we didn’t serve Hashem with simcha. ( I’m not getting involved with the slichos music debate, just arguing on the “this is not a feel good religion”)

  5. asolutley you are supposed to do the mitzvos bsimcha
    but first night of selichos ushers in the holy days and
    its supposed to be serious not jumping up and down with music
    certain things dont need to be spelled out in shulchan aruch
    its doesnt say anywhere thta you cant have a comedian by a levaya
    there are just certain things that you dont do

  6. TLS, you didn’t print my comment and also deleted another reader’s previous comment that had shed you in bad light. This is reminiscent of what Twitter did to Trump…
