#1 Many of the Lubavicher Chassids (a branch of Jewish mystics) were disappointed that the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson did not announce that he, himself, was the Messiah before he died. Not quite so many of these same Lubavicher Chsssids celebrate the anniversary of his death each year, awaiting his return from the dead to announce that he, himself, is the Messiah. It's quite sad, as the late Rabbi Schneerson suffered quite obviously from Alzheimers in his final years, and was incapable of announcing anything.

Also, for perspective, the Chassids are a small, cult-like offshoot of mainstream Judaism, which split into several branches following several different rabbinic families, of which the Lubavichers are one.

#2 Interesting, tw.

They may be cult-like, but at least they're not a cult that blows up people who don't believe exactly as they do.

That I can live with.
