    Amazing

    I remember it well…

    The rebbe asks for devar torah and he says a story!!!

    Also it is amazing how little money was raised even for those years. Could we all imagine now if the rebbe was sitting there what would be raised!!!!!!!

    Based on inflation, $1 in 1978 is now worth $3.78 so the sums are not so paltry though I do think that much more would be able to be raised now, mostly because Lubavitch has grown and more of us are capable of giving
