A return visit to the Jewish holy pjace
Jan 2019 • Couples
This is a 15 minute car ride from JFK airport and as such was our first stop after arriving by air from Israel via France.

It was a return visit after our 2015 visit (see my review from then). I would write today the same review as I did then.

This place was quite busy- as it always seems to be. There could have been 100 people there.

Yes it is a holy sacred site of the revered spiritual leader of his generation - the one who did so so much to be the leader of the vanguard of Jewish religious revival.

As such, the actual grave site (of the last Lubavitcher Rebbe and his predecessor, the Friederker) is quiet somber silent and reflective. Those there stand in silent respect, offering their respect and prayers to God

... But the reception building, in the adjacent area, is busy load and can be loud and noisy and boisterous.

In summary- at the grave, one honors and respects the holy Rebbe. In the room,one celebrates his legacy and the worlds that he built.

Open 24/7. This is the resting place of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. You can come here to pray and ask for blessings. This is one incredibly special place that you must visit.

A great righteous religious leader
Oct 2015 • Family
Here is buried arguably the greatest Jewish religious leader of the 20th century- undoubtedly the force behind the greatest and most successful movement of Jewish renewal and re affiliation and renewed commitment of the last fifty years, continuing actively to today, 21 years after his departure from this world.

His disciples have built an enclosure around the grave of the Rebbe, which is next to the one of the previous Rebbe who preceded him.

These are the graves of very holy and revered Jewish leaders- the place deserves utmost respect and decorum.

The Chabad Lubavitch have established a building on site, including memorabilia and videos of the Rebbe, and instructional inspirational material, as well as a guide for traditional observances at the memorial.

As a family with past and present connections to this Jewish movement, it was very meaningful and spiritual for us to "pay our respects" and hopefully renew and strengthen our commitments to the mission that the Rebbe promoted in his long illustrious career.
