It’s the Rebbe’s Sh’chuna. Why would you want to go anywhere else than the one the Rebbe actually used ?

How about

Because there’s no room and no fish?

Yes it is ...

The Rebbe (with many Chasidim accompanying him) used to walk to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for Tashlich.

True, but...

770- the Rebbe’s shul. And yet the Rebbe encouraged other shuls to be built, and to daven in them. Not sure if this point is relevant or not…

Thank you, May HaShem Bless all of you!!!

As a resident of Crown Heights with children, I am very appreciative of anyone who takes the money, time and effort to improve our quality of life.

Yes, tashlich at 770 with young children is not for the feint of heart. I would like to enjoy the experience with my family.

Thank you Rabbi Fischer and anyone else who made this improvment happen.

PS. Proper gratitude and Hakaras Hatov, is always right and appropriate.

They dug down 100 ft to the Rock bed to find water just like 770

Thank You

I’m a resident of Crown Heights & this is where my in-laws live. It’s right around the corner from us & it’s delightfully convenient. Thank You Rabbi Fisher!!

A natural source

They dug down 100 feet to connect to a natural source of water.

In the first photo you can see the red truck that has the well drilling rig. Those pipes are placed vertically in the well to hold it open.

Thank you very much!

As you said the one by 770 is very crowded so this is extremely helpful!
