Over 100,000 People Flock to Chabad Rebbe Memorial Tent

July 2, 2014  

Over 100,000 people visited a memorial tent in New York City for the 20th anniversary of the death of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, Rebbe of Lubavitch, the New York Police Department said Tuesday. 

Throngs of both Israeli and Diaspora Jews flocked to the gravesite, or ‘Ohel’, in Queens Tuesday, to give over personal prayers in the Rebbe’s memory. 

The masses conducted prayer sessions and wrote notes to the Rebbe, as shown in the video below.

Classes on Torah and Chassidic texts, as well as Rabbi Schneerson’s works, were also given at the site. 

“The Rebbe devoted his time to teach the Jewish people [Torah],” a Chabad-Lubavitch representative stated to Arutz Sheva. “We, too, devoted some time to learn and recognize the wisdom of the Rebbe, which drew on the eternal wisdom of the Torah.”

Rabbi Schneerson, considered to be one of the most influential Rabbis in recent history, died on June 12, 1994.
