The rabbi seems to be doing what he accuses the "Orthodox" of doing by passing judgement on them for not "asking the hard questions". For the record, the classic form of Hasidism is exactly that, non-judgemental. The Gerer invite the Jew into the "castle", and teach them step by step. As they learn, they come to understand, as they understand, they come to observe, the same way, say, as overeaters gradually come to follow a regimen of good nutrition. Bratzlvers start with dancing in the streets. I fear, Rabbi Yoffe seems to be playing the Kalte Litvak, but instead of caling upon the Jew to "hit the books" with a Gemara, he offers them a different set of "obligations".
