Photo Gallery: The Rebbe Being Mesader Kidushin

In honor of entering the 90th year since the Rebbe’s wedding, we present a gallery of vintage photos of the Rebbe being Mesader Kidushin at Chuppahs, which he regularly did until 1960. The gallery was made available by Rebbe Drive.

      It’s very simple: at that time there were other, much more important battles to fight. At that time it was a struggle to persuade women to cover their hair, and men to grow beards. The Rebbe made both of these conditions for his participation. The thickness of the veil, even if for the sake of argument we assume it to be important, was not on the agenda.
