The Rebbe came out for Shachrit with Tefillin on erev Rosh Hashana and erev Yom Kippur too.

One always saw the Rebbe in Tefillin on Yud Shevat, Chof Av and later on Vov Tishrei…except when these day fell on Shabbos.

Much thanks

How about reproducing the original negative, the picture would be sharper. Thanks for sharing.

The Rebbe was also seen in talis and tefilin on tisha b’av.

Incognito???

Please. He needed to take the picture without the Rebbe noticing anyone taking a picture, not that he needed to hide his identity.
As far as pictures are concerned, beautiful.
I remember sitting on that window ledge behind the rebbe during the Shabbes farbraingens as a 6 or 7 year old with my feet hanging down and the Rebbe would turn around to answer my lichayim.

I’ll agree that the word “incognito” is not being used correctly here. The title could be changed to “Clandestine Photos of the Rebbe.”

Instead of saying, “…he needed to do it incognito,” you could say, “…he needed to do it surreptitiously.”

Nice photos.

It was Purim...

…if he was wearing a mask while taking the pictures, he was ‘incognito’! 😉

Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing!
