"Even In Eretz Yisroel"

The Clevelander Rebbe, shlit"a

Rabbi Tal Zwecker commenting on "Why Do I Have To Start Now?":

I spoke to the Clevelander Rebbe who said that he thinks that other groups do observe Nittel in January. As to which day to observe, one should follow his mesora, otherwise he felt that December 25th was the day that should be observed. He re-iterated that the power of the klippos is misgaber, gets stronger, and they have the power to sap from our learning at this time so he holds that one should observe Nittel even in Eretz Yisroel.

Look forward to nittel every year. I started an all frum poker game and we just had our 4th anniversary! No, I'm not chassidische, but who could pass up whiskey?

Our group consists of two converts, and four ba'ale teshuvah.

Somehow this comment by anon affirms what I've been writing about Nittel all along - if you don't have a mesora for it, it's not for you. Whiskey & poker games don't seem to be what it's about!
