Osifa's Outstanding Octogenarian's Orate

The excitement builds as the long awaited Osifa at CitiField draws near.

So far the Organizers of the Ichud Organization have been mum on who will speak during the program.

It's been reported elsewhere that Rabbi Wachsman from Monsey will M.C. the event.

Rabbi Mattisyahu Salomon will also probably take on a speaking role, as he is quite proficient in this regard. I remember hearing him speak at Chynka Hall, possibly the first Osifa of it's kind regarding Internet. He is very powerful.

Another possibility is Rabbi Avrohom Schorr, who spoke this past year at the Agudah Convention. He may want to rid the home of the computer, and replace Internet access with Internet Cafe's (sans food).

In any event, Rumor has it that the Organizer's tried to bring in some "big guns" from Eretz Yisroel and Europe. Even if they fail, I imagine that some of the senior USA Roshei Yeshiva, probably of the Moetzes, will grace the podium.

New York City was all abuzz today how CitiField landed the prestigious MLB All-Star game for the year 2013. I say that the real All Stars will grace the Field this Sunday, not only on the dais, but also in the stands.


  1. I say that the real All Stars will grace the Field this Sunday, not only on the dais, but also in the stands.

    ברוך שהחיינו וקיימנו והגיענו לראות במו עינינו בקיומו של החזון וְעַתָּה, שָׂמְךָ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, כְּכוֹכְבֵי הַשָּׁמַיִם,

    However WADR this is not only premature but a bit on the self-congratulatory side.ויהללוך זר ולא פיך

    What I am hoping against hope and praying for is that the Asifa goes so smoothly, the program is so inspiring , innovative, uplifting and enlightening that not only will YOU have an illustratively alliterative title for your post-asifa post but that all the Oifegklerta and skeptic blogs will begrudgingly admit "Mee K'Amkha Yisroel" בבחינת ברְצוֹת יְהוָה, דַּרְכֵי-אִישׁ; גַּם-אוֹיְבָיו, יַשְׁלִם אִתּוֹ ד and ומלאך רע יענה אמן

  2. In this regard I am hoping and praying that at least ONE of the speakers acknowledges the legitimacy, pain and suffering of the counter-demonstrators and uses this opportunity when explicit topics are going to be explicated (no women and children in the stadium)though these things are normally a hush-hush shondeh to explicitly at least mention the horrible problem of the sexual abuse of our children, maybe even to link it to the internet z'nus problems.

    This will go parsecs towards mending fences with so many alienated and skeptical of out brethren.

    לכל הפחות I hope that NONE of the speakers demonizes or marginalizes them

  3. See y'all Sunday...

    Cause I got a golden ticket...!

  4. Sorry Bray, I've been away. Thanks for teaching me the new word parsecs.

    I will BLN post on my Asifa experience later.
