the wax figure was made most probably by goyim, for goyim – what’s ASSUR ASSUR ASSUR about that?

made by a goy

the sculpture wasn’t made by a jew, so its perfectly permissible according to halacha.

you are saying that its good the fact that there is a wax statue of the alter rebbe isnt it assur

clarifying clarifiation

actually the alter Rebbe is standing because it is a scene of wax figures depicting the story of the czar coming in plain clothes to the AR’s cell and the Alter Rebbe still knew who he was and stood up and the czar was amazed

Guys

Guys get over yourselves this wax figure was made by the museum. Why do we only see the negative in everything, observe the respect that Russia gives to Chabad considering its history.

The “local wax museum” is IN the prison, which was burned down and later rebuilt. There is an exhibit there with the Alter Rebbe, who is SITTING, while his esteemed guests stand near him! (Yes, I was there.)

those pictures are amazing. its so cool to see russia the way it looks now and to see the cell of the alter is the most amazing.

This dosn't seem kosher! (Alter Rebbe sculpture)

I do not like it! What are the halachas on this and what is the reasoning behind this creation?

How is that permissable, a wax figure!?
June 30, 2010 5:57 pm

An embarrassment too

Rabbi Amar walks with such dignity!

To #1: Pictures of the Rebbe all over are now standard, in super large size; in mini-size hanging in the cribs; all over…

I have always wondered: Isn’t it chitzoniyus to be so tied to an image – isn’t it all about the Neshama Klalis? Does it really matter what guf it comes in?

arent full figured statures assur big time?!
