    watching this clip again, even after seeing it when it first came out a few years ago, I am mesmerized by the aidelkeit of the rebbe assisting the frediker rebbe,

    it is just a microscopic glimpse of the stories we are told of the Bittul he had to the F.R.

    just those moments he if pointing to the signature line, and holding the book/card in place for it not to move while its being signed , I am awe stucked by the fine charactor of the Rebbe (RaMaSH)
    the narration was beautiful as is the clip itself
    thank you again,

    Notice at the end of the video how the building next door, where the main shul is now, was just a nearby apartment building back then.
