    Baruch
    Your way of describing the Rebbe is defiantly unique!!!!!

  • 2 Benjamin Heed // Jul 8, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    I have read much of this devoted Rabbi. He is, I believe, an inspiration to everyone, regardless of Race, or Creed. He left a legacy of Faith, and Devotion to the Jewish Faith. I am only sorry I never had the priviledge of meeting him, and sitting down and talking to him. May he be Eternally Blessed, and Rest In Peace.
    I only wish that the Roman Catholic Faith, of which I am part of, and all other Faiths could take a lesson from this Loyal Child of G-d

    Baruch,
    The third rebbe at the left is rebbe Yitzchok Mier Heschil Z”L of Mezabizh-Haifa.

    Does anyone know the picture setting?

  • 6 azi // Dec 21, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    If this works then it’s this:

    This Picture is at the Levaye of Horav Hachosid Reb Shlome Horenstein Z”L on East Broadway on the lower Eastside .

  • 8 Chaim G // Dec 22, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Who was Horav Hachosid Reb Shlome Horenstein?

  • 9 avremele // Dec 22, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    I would imagine he was a close relative of the SIL of MaHaRYatz

  • 10 moshe // Nov 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    He was the SIL of MaHaRYatz. In fact, they are buried right next to each other. Also in the cemetery are the Rebbetzins of the 5th, 6th, and 7th Rebbe’s of Lubavitch.

  • 11 moshe // Nov 23, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Reb Shloime Horenstein was a boyaner chossid and a distant relative of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

  • 12 Photo // May 7, 2012 at 12:18 am

    I heard the Boyaner Rebbe was elderly, and the Lubavicher Rebbe, holding his arm in the photo, assisted him down the stairs.

  • 13 Tattale // May 8, 2012 at 2:58 am

    Photo: And there is more to the story. The Boyaner Chasidim realizing that the Lubavicher Rebbe was was helping him down the stairs they ran over to help the Lubavicher rebbe, but the Rebbe refused saying he wants to have the mitzva himself.
