Message:  1. Everything you say is wonderful but I don't see how it is possible to follow it in the real world. For example, if I only use one dishwasher or eat the foods on your Pesah list people won't eat at my house. I know it's terrible, but that's the real world, so how can we follow Rabbi Abadi's guidance without making outselves outcasts.

2. Are any of Rabbi Abadi's students pulpit rabbis with communitites that follow his teachings? Is the kollel training these types of rabbis, or only men who will sit and learn. If it is the latter, then I don't see how the situation can change.
Reply:  1. The Gemarah says up in Shamayim its an upside down world - Those that are considered great down here are not up there. I'm not exactly sure what that means, but.... Its safe to say that this world isn't the place to be worrying about people's opinion of you. If you follow your Rov "completely" without the shopping procedure, you can't go wrong.
2. Yes there are a few. It'll take time.
