Please! explain
Can someone please explain the fact that the Zohar says that Tzaddikim are not found at their resting place on Shabbos & Yomtov. Also when Yud Shvat came out on Shabbos why didn't the Rebbe spent Shabbos at the Ohel.

If you're seeking logical explanations, or explanations based on what's known in torah sources, you're tuned into the wrong frequency. Post 3 Tammuz is beyond such orbits. There's no such thing. Total emuna, while with Chabad (moichin), a chossid, without a visible rebbe, a 7th generation that seemed to end but apparently hasn't... this is moshiach tzeiten, nimne hanimno-ois...

Let's not get into any fights here. There is lots of validity to spend time by any tzadkim. Especially when the rebbe of breslov said to spend time with him in uman on Rosh hahshana. If he wouldn't be "there" why would he ask for it to be done!

Please! explain
we need a place to farbraing without crazy people fighting i.e. 770

If yud shevat fell out on shabbos, the rebbe would make a farbrengen for the chassidim
(6/13/2018 10:55:11 PM)
Well obviously for some reason the Rebbe always said "I will mention at the tzion".

to #1 (but are u really # 1???!!!!)
i barely go there but is this all u can say when u see MILLIONS are going into accommodating ppl who DO WANT TO BE THERE on SHABB or any other day...????!!!!!

how about first say: WOW this is mammesh AMAZING ... then maybe u can bring in ur Lomdes....

as the story goes about the guy telling his friend: "dont u know we dont give tzedoko at night"... so a rebbe said "mistama he dosent give in day time either" ...so do YOPU ever go to the ohel? ( u know the Rayatz is there as well...)

Moshiach is on his way!

Do some inner reflection Dude!!!!!

Why the Rebbe Rashab established a shul in the actual (building of the) ohel of the Alter Rebbe, which was meant to be used specifically on Shabbos and Yom Tov [ the Yomim Noraim]. Did the Rebbe Rashab not know of the Zohar?

(6/14/2018 12:13:56 AM)
It doesn't get much more well organized than that!
(6/14/2018 2:48:33 AM)
Source in Zohar please, thanks. The Rebbes priority is his chassidim. How can he leave them and not fabrengen by them for yud shvat?! Also if the Rebbe would've gone to the ohel everyone would have followed and the Rebbe usually went alone to the ohel.
(6/14/2018 3:36:24 AM)
An impressive production indeed!

IMHO, this is well intended and executed, but how does it in with the Rebbe's letter re Yud Shevat 5711? The letter describes the Yarztiet as a time of outreach?

When The Rashbatz Went for Rosh Hashono or For Yom Kipur To The Oihel of The Rebbe Rashab, and the Frierdiker Rebbe Sent With The Rashbatz A Pidyoin, So They Also Definatly knew What Says in Zoihar... So Obviously the zoihar does not mean What You Mean...

There is a Tahalucha being arranged to shuls in the area on Shabbos afternoon.

Even Chol Hamoed
When I was in E.Y. for Pesach many years ago I wanted to go to Miron on Chol Hamoed & I was told about the Zohar.
(6/14/2018 7:15:06 AM)
The hisgalus will happen in 770 not the ohel!!! this is where chassidim should spend shabbso gimmel tamuz!!!
(6/14/2018 7:58:03 AM)
Blown away!
Its really amazing to see how so many chassidim want to spend such an important day as close as possible to the Rebbe. ! !

With regards to what was mentioned earlier about that which is written in seforim, not to visit kevarim on certain days, I heard that the Rebbe once told Rabbi Feigelstock from montreal, that if you view it as a then indeed you are not allowed to go, however if you look at it that the Rebbe moved a few blocks then there is no difference...

In addition: On 29 Elul 5710 (Erev RH 5711) as the Rebbe left the Ohel the gate was Locked. While they were trying to locate the key the Rebbe remarked: Everything is here a minyan and so on we are only missing a Shofar!

(this seems similar to the practice in Lubavitch and Haditch that upon the Rabbeims request a minyan was arranged at the Ohelim of the Rabbeim for the Yamim Noraim (RH YK) & Shabbos and Yom-Tov. See Letter of the Rebbe Rashab 16 Shevat 5672 and sicha of the Frierdiker Rebbe 13 Tishrei 5705.)

You're welcome! Explanation:
The chassidim will be with each other. They will farbreng, learn, daven, sing, laugh, cry, eat, drink... together.

clear ksav yad
on time the editor of the chabad luach (the different zmanim,minhogim) wrote that by very Rosh Codesh we will go to the Ohel one of those R"CH was Shabbos and by mitake he also wrote by that R"CH when he gave it to the Rebbe to check it over the rebbe gave it back to him and said "forsure that on this R"ch we will not go b/c if you go your denying the Frierdiker Rebbe of being a Tzadik as it says that the BODYs of tzaddikim are not there on Shabbos and Yom Tov" then the added to publicize this fact (")

With all of our different opinions....
we all have one thing in common...

Rabbi Feigelshtok, was here Peisach Tof Shin Yud, and he was going to go back to Montreal, ( he didn't remember if it was Choil Hamoieid Peisach that he was going to go back to montreal, or isru chag(which has a din in certain things like yom tov).), but he didn't want to go back without going first to the OIHEL, so he asked the rebbe What Should he Do Because Shabbos and Yom Tov You Don't Go To A Bais Hachayim? So he says that The Rebbe Answerd Him as Follows: Oib Es iz ba dir A Beis Hachayim - iz oif a beis Hachayim Geit Men Nit Shabboss un Yom Tov ; Ober Oib Az Der Rebbe Hot Zich Aribergekliben A Por Blok Vaiter, Iz Vos iz Der Nafko Mino Tzvishen Shabbos Un Yom Tov Un A Gantz Yohr?! Ad Kan. So we see that going to the rebbe you can always!! Thanks For Asking. And Very Soon We Should Have The Zechus To See The Rebbe Back Do Lemato Beguf Gashmi Kipshutoi Mamosh Gezunterheit Un Freilicherheit.
