  1. i cant imagine that it was only 45,000 people. i would bet that it was double if not triple that. Who wouldnt come out for such a levaya?

  2. may we all teshuva & get the message from hashem of anyone niftar at the age of 79-like the spinka rebbe of yerushalyim niftar also at 79 the day before the Baba Elazar was stabbed & killed -its the perek of Tehillim referring to exactly todays situation going on in Eretz Yisroel (Although it was made over 3000 years ago by Dovid Hamelech)

    MAY WE ALL DO TESHUVA ASAP & THEN MOSHIACH COME

    MAY HER NESHAMA HAVE AN ALIAH
