    I was there too and am extrmely thankful to Abba Refson and team along with those that support monetarily. זכות הרבים תלוי בהם!
    May we merit to the coming of Moshaich immediately, and we will merit to have the same comfort in Yerushalyim.

    A well written article that says… Nothing
    I am trying to understand the point of the article altogether. Was it about the gashmius and wonderful organization skills? Then why the negativity? Just describe how good a job was done
    Was there anything else to add, perhaps something of the ruchnius? the achdus, the farbrengens, the comraderie, the davening, or gefeel? Guess not worth writing about?

    I think you have misunderstood. The author is here to thank the Ohel staff and express his excitement and “shock” as to how amazing accommodation they provide. Relax.

    As always you inspire me with your articles and thoughts. With a twist of humor elegance and chassidkiet…

    Well said. I was hoping that after 25 years of service to Chabad and the velt, one of the 25 years tributes would be to Abba Refson. He has dedicated 25 years to facilitate access of Chassidim and the entire world to the ohel from immense comfort. The millions and millions of dollars that he spent to enable this over the years leaves me speechless that he never let us down, not charging a penny for all of his services. Let’s not ever take it for granted and we should drop a few shekels on the Ohel operation often so… Read more »

    I understand that comment “looking for the point”.
    Of course the gasgmiyus needs to be the best possible,as the the Rebbe often stressed. Though one would expect as a description of this gimmel tammuz at the ohel, to hear more about achdus of chassidim, about the feeling of Ad Mossai after 25 years!!

    Perhaps you are missing his point:The Ruchniyus מאן דכר שמיה – it’s obvious that there was, is and always will be Ruchniyus, as was always the case by The Rebbe; and as it should be.
    The Chidush is that even the Gashmiyus was superb and left no room for discomfort nor distraction from the Ruchniyus.
    To have spoken about the Ruchniyus would be redundant and stating the obvious
