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

Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing!

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.

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.

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

Thank you!

I believe the second picture was printed in the album ימי בראשית

Much thanks

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

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

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