  1. I love the 2nd to last picture. You see an old Crown Victoria, either from late 80’s or early 90’s, parked across the street. I haven’t seen one of those in years.

  2. @ what age did he start walking with a cane?
    & all those guys walking around him in the middle of the day- are they all on his payroll?

    • Thank you for your genuine concern. You are takeh an emmesdika ohev yisroel.
      Most Rebbes, regardless of age, walk with a fancy cane/umbrella. It is a minhag that goes back to the European days. Rebbes, when they travel, always go with an entourage. It’s more bekavodik/malchusdik.
      If you look at the other story with the Rebbe being in Lakewood, posted above, you will see that the Rebbe was there for a housing development for his Chassidim as well.
      It also happened to have been during Bain Hazmanim.
      And finally, being such a hard working fellow yourself, what were you doing posting a comment at 3:05 am???

  3. Thank You Trying to improve! We need more people like you! The level of lytzunis toward Gedolei Yisroel today is sickening

    Most Rebbes? Plz dont make things up! Also plz don’t create Minhagim. A minhag by klal yisroel is a halacha. walking w/ a cane isnt a minhag. Grow-up
